PERSON CENTRED PLANNING
Glenholme’s care is genuinely individualised and person centred. Those we support are treated with dignity and respect. Support is personalised; responding to the unique needs of each individual. It is co-ordinated, to ensure a holistic approach and, it is enabling; allowing those we support to fulfil their potential. We believe it is important that those we support are completely involved in the decisions which are made about their care.
POSITIVE BEHAVIOUR SUPPORT
We use Positive Behaviour Support to improve quality of life and reduce the need for adverse and restrictive practices. Our focus is on the person and their needs rather than the behaviour. We also work with friends and family members to ensure the broadest possible support base for changing behaviour.
Across our services individuals are encouraged to develop their independence and gain as many new experiences as possible, we prioritise inclusion in the community encouraging people to take part in a range of clubs, socialise, take regular exercise, pursue their interests and hobbies, access training and where possible find voluntary or paid work.
We provide support through genuinely individualised person centred care that respects the individual and promotes independence and the achievement of personal goals. We promote a culture of positive behaviour support based on the values of recognising each person’s individuality and their human rights, a rejection of adverse and restrictive practices, focusing on the person and their needs rather than the behaviour.
Glenholme work in partnership with individuals, family and carers as well as social care and health professionals, ensuring the highest levels of support, focusing on achieving quality and measurable outcomes for people, for example, using comprehensive Health Action plans for health and wellbeing including mental health, supporting someone with communication difficulties to get the support they need and training staff in different communication methods.
Our care pathway offers support in residential, supported living and outreach settings, so that we can meet the changing needs of an individual as their independence and aspirations progress.
