Coronavirus - COVID-19
Update on COVID-19 and Choice Care Contingency Plan
We provide high quality, personalised care and support for people with complex learning disabilities, autism and severe mental health conditions at over 60 residential homes across the South, South West and West Midlands. Each property is a distinct community of 4-13 people, with similar care requirements, mixed or single-sex, living together in a place that feels like home.
We support individuals of differing ages and abilities, so every home has its own unique personality - but there’s always a strong emphasis on living life to the full. We provide a wide range of meaningful activities, tailored to individual capabilities, to help develop communication, social and life skills, building confidence and self-esteem, while helping people progress to a more independent lifestyle.
Our homes are designed around the needs of the people who live there, with a consistent, dedicated care team on hand to provide personalised support. We offer an exceptional carer to resident ratio, with amongst the highest CQC ratings of any comparable provider.
All our homes offer a safe, supportive and therapeutic environment, equipped to the highest standards, with 24-hour support and specialist care. We provide:
All our homes are run by highly-experienced, exceptionally motivated staff, dedicated to the needs of those they care for. Care teams are led by accomplished registered managers, supported by fully-trained social care workers. Each home also involves a Positive Behaviour Support practitioner, who works alongside staff to support individuals with their emotional and mental wellbeing.
Our homes support those with a wide range of complex needs, including caring for those with behaviours that challenge.Conditions we support
Quality of care is always our priority. We are at the forefront of national best practice. Our care and safety standards significantly exceed statutory requirements and are supported by strong governance and rigorous internal and independent audit processes.Assuring quality
Our specialist annexes are designed for those with complex conditions who can benefit from residential living but find a shared environment challenging. Self-contained studios adjacent to a main property offer privacy and personal space, and are an innovative solution to managing some of the behavioural and risk issues presented by the people we support. Annexes feature a variety of specialised equipment and assistive technologies to promote independence and reduce dependency on staff.Success stories
When designing new homes, our key priority is to meet the needs of those who will live in them. As well as an environment that’s fit for purpose, our properties are people’s homes. Every Choice Care home needs to be welcoming, well-equipped and comfortably furnished; somewhere where everybody feels settled and at ease.
