Individuals living at Elm are provided with the appropriate care and support to enable them to achieve their potential by enhancing well-being, independence and quality of life. The care and support provided to each person’s individual needs and wants are determined at the initial pre-admission assessment.
Enhancing quality of life is important to us. By working with the person and key stakeholders we adopt a person centred approach to promote the development of both social and adaptive skills, leading towards maintaining and increasing independence and offering opportunities to achieve positive outcomes.
By enabling staff to understand the function of risk behaviours, this enables plans to be implemented to safely manage potential risks and to provide the least restrictive support in an inclusive and empowering way.
Residents also have access to the ‘Highfield Hub’ which is the active support centre. Here, residents can engage in social and recreational activities with other residents, as well as more formal based teaching, learning and education whereby qualifications can be gained.
