The Coronavirus lockdown is affecting people in many different ways, but it can be particularly difficult for people with learning disabilities, autism and complex needs. They often need routine and structure, which has been disrupted as we’re no longer able to go out and about, visiting the usual places, doing the usual things.→ Read the rest



<p> Throughout the year we have a wide range of activities for our service users with acquired brain injuries or learning disabilities to enjoy, but at Christmas this is especially important. While many service users go and stay with their families at Christmas, we want to make the day special for those who remain with us over the festive period.→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/christmas-activities-care-homes/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a></p>



<p> <strong>Headway Approved Providers</strong><br /> Two of our residential care homes for adults with acquired brain injuries – The Mews and 144 Boughton Green Road – have been recently re-assessed by Headway, the brain injury charity. The assessment process requires the home to demonstrate the provision of appropriate specialist care for people with complex, physical and/or cognitive impairment due to acquired brain injury.→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/homes-gain-high-scores-independent-assessments/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a></p>



<p> We encourage feedback from the families of the service users in our care on a regular basis, but once a year we formalise this process by sending them a short questionnaire to complete. It is sent to both the families of service users who have learning disabilities and those who have an acquired brain injury.→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/families-survey-results-2017/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a></p>



<p> There is much debate on whether community-based support is better than ‘institutional care’ but of course, it depends on the individual. It also depends on the type of care and support. One of the best ways to describe our specialist residential care homes is ‘a place that feels like home’.→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/residential-care-in-the-heart-of-the-community/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a></p>



<p> At The Richardson Partnership for Care we strive to provide an open environment, welcoming feedback from service users’ families about the care of their loved ones. We also complete an annual survey, which provides family members with a more formal opportunity to tell us about their views on the care, support and rehabilitation services that we provide for adults with acquired brain injuries and learning difficulties.→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/feedback-from-service-users-families/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a></p>



<p> Voice Ability is an advocacy service providing independent advocacy for people aged over 18. The organisation supports people who use adult mental health care services with issues about mental health and social care.</p> <p>Voice Ability also provides a quality checking service for a range of organisations including Northamptonshire County Council, the CQC and NHS Trusts.→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/the-mews-awarded-1010-in-quality-checkers-report/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a></p>



<p> At The Richardson Partnership for Care, we strive to have an open relationship with service users and their families so that they can tell us straight away if they are concerned about any aspect of their care or their home. We hold regular care reviews as well as completing an annual survey.→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/care-homes-shine-in-independent-feedback/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a></p>



<p> We learn about the world constantly through our senses and by interacting with it. This process of exploration and learning starts in childhood and continues throughout our lives. However, people with learning difficulties may not have had the same opportunities to explore and interact with their environment, and people with acquired brain injuries may need to repeat some of these learning experiences.→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/sensory-awareness-groups/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a></p>
