Our home

The Home and our Care Plan

The resident, our staff, the resident’s doctor and relatives (or representatives) are all given the opportunity to contribute to an agreed care plan. This outlines what the particular needs and wishes of the resident are and establishes the appropriate level of service required. It is a dynamic document which always reflects the changing circumstances of the resident. A member of staff will be made the resident’s key worker, and they will be responsible for monitoring the care plan. Regular reviews are conducted by the senior residential care workers to validate the process.

Activities

Our Activity Organiser arranges for group activities on a regular basis. If the resident is able to undertake travel away from Collinson House, visits to place of local interest, theatres, garden centres or lunch at a local pub are arranged. Therapeutic activities that support a persons sense of self, encouraging the use of individual skills and memory. Structured group work and individual focus are essential to a successful therapeutic activity programme which is provided at Collinson House.
