At Windy Knowe, an Activities Coordinator is employed within the home to provide individual, group and general activities for the residents. These activities are adapted to suit individual needs and include outside entertainers and trips out utilising our mini bus. As we pride ourselves on both belief in socialising and individual needs, there are three communal lounges, two dining rooms and a quiet room for one to one or private meetings within the home. Our Activities Coordinator liaises with local support groups, churches and schools to provide a varied selection of activities.
All service users will undergo an assessment to ensure we are able to meet their needs, our service will provide support which encourages personal growth and development, we aim to encourage and promote motivation and independence. All service users will have their own care plan which will be compiled with the service users, their family members and professional bodies. Our care plans will detail the requirements of the individual, this will include daily tasks, activities, personal requirements, risk assessments and their likes and dislikes. Each service user will have the opportunity to discuss their wishes with their General Practitioner.
