Residential / Registered Care Homes
Our care services in Shropshire are set in residential surroundings close to excellent amenities and transport links in Ludlow.
All our specialist homes provide care and support for individuals who need more staffing support than is available within standard residential services.
Occupying a site of just less than half an acre, each of the three purpose-built bungalows offers five-person bedrooms, a spacious lounge, a kitchen area, and bathrooms/ WCs. A fourth bungalow gives the benefit of additional communal rooms used for various activities -or to find a little peace and quiet.
Although they are located on one site, each bungalow has its own character, reflecting the interests and aspirations of the people we support. All properties are ground-level, with easy access for people with disabilities. We maintain each home to a high standard and encourage those we support to express a choice regarding the decor and furnishings of their bedrooms.
The environment in each bungalow is homely whilst robust to meet the individual needs of the person who comes to live with us. The gardens are a welcome bonus designed specifically for people with visual impairments.
Activities and Local Amenities
The people we support are encouraged and empowered to participate actively in their community and access mainstream leisure pursuits and interests through local transport or their own Motability vehicles.
Our homes have built their excellent reputation based upon well-established principles of care aiming to deliver an individual person-centred approach, offering progressive, integrated care pathways for individuals with disabilities.
Our care focuses on helping individuals by supporting them to reach their maximum potential to live fulfilling lives. We see every person we support as an individual, and everyone has a person-centred plan tailor-made to meet their needs. Regular reviews take place to ensure that those we support are receiving the best possible support and opportunities.
We ensure that all the people we support feel safe and are always treated with dignity and respect. We respect their right to privacy when they want it. We listen to what they want and what they say about our service.
Each bungalow has its own CQC (Care Quality Commission) Registered Manager, Deputy Manager, and staff team. We have very high professional standards. Our staff receive a high level of training – not just with statutory training such as moving and handling, health and safety and protection of vulnerable adults.
All staff receive comprehensive training on an ongoing basis to meet the needs of those we support. Staff receive regular supervision and are encouraged to create their development plans. Support staff can attain a minimum Level 2 Health and Social Care Diploma. We also develop additional specialist training to ensure staff feel confident supporting people with disabilities such as visual impairment, challenging behaviours, epilepsy, and diabetes training.
Whether support is being paid for by a local authority, through Individual Budgets or out of a person’s pocket, Vision Homes Association can create a plan that is always tailored to an individual needs whilst promoting independence, dignity and the right to live the way they want in their own space. We know this approach is important to those we support, and we have seen the benefits this support brings to the welfare and health of those we support.
Care Quality Commission (CQC)
All our services are regulated by the Care Quality Commission, which regulates health and adult social care across the public and independent sectors to:
- Improve services across health and adult social care and act swiftly to remedy bad practices.
- Put the people who use these services first and champion their rights.
- Share their wealth of knowledge and expertise on health and social care services.
The CQC continues to inspect care services and give recommendations and requirements to ensure that the best possible service is provided.
