OUR CARE HOMES

We have six residential care homes in Northampton: Three of these provide specialist care and support for adults with learning disabilities – 2 & 8 Kingsthorpe Grove and 23 Duston Road, and three provide rehabilitation for adults with acquired brain injuries – 144 Boughton Green Road, The Richardson Mews and The Coach House. We are experienced in looking after people who present with associated behaviour that challenges, complex needs, mental health issues and physical disabilities.

Each home is different and provides a unique environment.  So, when accepting someone new, we carefully consider the home that will be most suitable for them. This includes taking into account the existing residents and the dynamics within the home.

Our care homes range from eight to 25 bedrooms, all of which have ensuite or private bathrooms/wet-rooms. They are all homes with character, designed and decorated like a home – not an institution.  This is because we strongly believe that light, spacious, attractive living spaces improve mood and well-being. And if someone feels at home, it will help them to engage with their therapy or rehabilitation. Therefore, the physical aspects of each home combine safety and practicality with comfort and character.

Bedrooms are generously proportioned and can be decorated to suit the style and taste of the service user before they move in. There is also plenty of communal space, so service users can choose when to socialise and when to take some time out – without being confined to their bedroom. This feeling of space and calmness reduces stress and makes the environment more conducive to recovery.

The benefits of living in a

COMMUNAL SETTING

Residential care for someone with an acquired brain injury or learning disabilities may not seem the ideal solution for their family, who perhaps feel that they should be looked after ‘at home’. However, we strive to provide a new ‘family’ environment for the service users in our care. This is one of the reasons that our staff don’t wear uniforms. In addition, specialist residential care by people who understand and cater for the individual’s clinical, psychological and social needs 24 hours a day can significantly improve their condition and their quality of life.

Moreover, social isolation can be a major problem for people living independently: it can cause loneliness, stress, sleep problems and mental health issues. At Richardson Care, we provide a positive and friendly atmosphere while still respecting service users’ need for privacy and to spend time on their own. This choice and the support that’s provided remove the threat of social isolation.

Situated close to local

SHOPS AND AMENITIES

All Richardson Care homes are situated close to local shops and amenities. This is important because it allows service users to feel part of the local community and to develop their life skills. In addition, all of our care homes are just a few miles from Northampton town centre, which provides additional leisure and healthcare facilities, as well as train and bus services to further afield. Northampton is located in the centre of England, with good transport links to the North, South, East and West.
