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 enhance the persons quality of life.
Care and support provided at Highfield House is tailored to each individual need. Staff support is provided in all aspects of daily life, only where needed. Highfield House facilitates and supports resident engagement forums to ensure individuals have a say about, and take an active role with the running of their home.
Residents also have access to ‘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 in qualifications to facilitate learning and education. These are based on active support models in conjunction with the National Open College Network (NOCN) to support resident’s to achieve formal qualifications which they can use in the community and develop through college or further education in the community.
