The ‘My Home Life’ leadership programme will support managers to drive forward quality improvement and professional development of staff, in order to better respond to the complex needs and wishes of residents and relatives.
The facility was established to pilot a model that would:
prevent unnecessary permanent admission to residential care
prevent unnecessary admission to hospital.
facilitate discharge from hospital and contribute to managing delays in discharge from acute or community hospitals.
deliver support to ensure a safe and full re-integration into the Service Users home and local community.
assist Service Users’ in setting and achieving their planned goals, placing the emphasis on the Service Users needs. Goals will be set with the service users and reviewed weekly or as required throughout their stay
support Service Users to regain and maintain daily living skills.
support carers in their role during a person’s stay in the unit and after the assessment period is complete.
respond quickly and flexibly to the changing needs of the Service Users to support their return home.
