At Choice, we maintain a high staff to service user ratio and our team of enthusiastic, skilled and committed employees provides 24-hour support to all our service users. All homes have a management team of a registered manager and a deputy and/or assistant manager who supervise and support their team.
Our staff help us to provide a supportive and stimulating environment that is designed to meet specific needs. They support service users in occupational, educational and recreational activities – making use of both home and community-based facilities – with a focus on activities that relate to an individual’s interests and enhance their communication and social skills.
Employees are offered time off on full pay to pursue relevant training opportunities and develop their professional skills. They are highly motivated to provide care, support and advice which enables individuals to develop life skills, independence, community participation and decision-making abilities.
Established staff members will also perform the role of key worker for a particular service user, to ensure the service offered is reviewed regularly and any problems or concerns can be discussed. The key worker will be someone the service user chooses or communicates well with, and who has an appreciation of their racial and cultural heritage.
Homes provide service users with a choice of nutritious and wholesome meals, catering for special diets, any cultural or religious needs and individual preferences. When possible, service users are supported and encouraged to produce their own meals. Some individuals, however, require increased assistance and supervision from staff.
Overall, our staff are trained to provide opportunities for service users to learn and experience enjoyable activities and leisure pursuits in a homely and secure living environment. We provide high standards of professional care that honour their privacy, dignity and choice.
