In Shropshire we provide two Registered Care homes and Supported Living and our priority is to ensure the people we support take part in meaningful activities every day.
During the summer, one of our Registered Care homes hosts an annual garden party, where friends, family, staff, the people we support and other providers and organisations from the local area have a great day filled with games, music, laughter and food.
“It’s always a fantastic day each year and it’s amazing to see everyone come together and have such a great time.”
- Carol Groom, Head of Service
Interests of the people we support vary widely, including gaming, gardening, cycling, shopping, swimming, voluntary work and socialising with friends. Links have been developed with local organisations such as charity shops, the sports village, Shrewsbury Wildlife and the Quarry leisure centre, which ensures the people we support have great access to their local communities and are able to develop their independence, learn new skills and form new relationships.
“People were supported to have choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible, the policies and systems in the service support this practice. Staff spoke about those they supported with warmth and respect.”
