Philosophy of Care
Philosophically, we believe in understanding the needs of the individual through robust assessment in order to provide person centred support to enable individuals to lead fulfilling lives as part of their local community.
We do this through:
- Psychologically informed environments that encourage staff to reflect on practice and how to support the individual.
- Person centred plans to develop positive behaviour support, enabling individuals to maintain and develop skills leading to greater independence.
- Providing services that represent good value for money by demonstrating measurable, effective outcomes and progression.
- Ensuring our colleagues have opportunities for tailored training and development to meet individual needs.
- Ensuring that compliance and audit systems support service delivery and constantly drive improvement and embed quality in everything we do.
- We work with a wide range of stakeholders to meet the needs of the individuals needs. ho challenge the service.
The Support Delivered
Holland House provides a step down for individuals who are ready to move on from hospital settings to more independent living, as part of their rehabilitation pathway.
Before admission, a key worker is allocated and, if needed, a transition plan implemented to ensure a successful move from the individual’s current placement. A Consultant Psychiatrist will oversee and review the support and treatment given, on a monthly basis.
Through person centred planning Individuals are supported (only where necessary) and encouraged to independently undertake their own personal care requirements, domestic duties, shopping, cooking, self medicate (where applicable), manage own finances, undertake work placements and organise social activities to enhance life skills.
Outcomes and activities are agreed in-line with individual needs, interests, wishes and ambitions and in collaboration with commissioners, families and significant others. Establishing meaningful activities promote independence and individuality- the home facilitates gardening projects, art work, further education, work experience and charity work to name a few.
Individuals are encouraged to make informed choices and to take informed risks.
