<p>Location is often one of the first considerations when placing someone in residential care – so that they can be close to friends and family – but it’s not necessarily the most important. It’s usually a combination of factors that contribute to the quality of the care provided that takes precedent over the location.→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/importance-location-placing-someone-residential-care/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a></p>

<p> One of the most popular activities that we arrange in-house for our service users is the weekly bowling sessions that we hold in the main hall at The Mews each Monday.</p> <p>We are fortunate to have Duggie Mitchell on our team, who is an experienced bowling instructor and has played competitive bowls for 35 years with success at Club, County and National levels.→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/1011-2/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a></p>

<h1>Adults with acquired brain injuries, learning disabilities and complex needs</h1> <p>In addition to surveying the families of service users in our care on an annual basis, we also complete a questionnaire with the individuals themselves, which asks specific questions about different aspects of their lives within the care home.→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/satisfaction-survey-care-home-residents/" 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>
