New service in Sheffield nears completion
With the external structure complete, and internal works nearing completion, the Heathcotes Group takes great pride in updating you about our new service opening early May in Sheffield, for adults with learning disabilities, complex needs and associated challenging behaviour. Our aim is to create a broad and flexible service, which meets and adapts to the changing needs and personal goals of the people using the service.
At the core of this service are two purpose-built specialist residential homes. It is known that some people need the residential model to help promote, support and encourage independence. What sets Heathcotes apart is that we are committed to developing pathways into the community for people that use our services; the service has been specially designed to optimise and promote this ethos and we are committed to providing services that offer real opportunities. We currently have 25 operational sites across central England and we have successfully supported many individuals to gain life skills that have enabled them to move on into more independent settings. Our success has enabled us to meet the demand for our specialist services by opening further sites opening across central England throughout Spring/Summer 2014.
David Harrison, Managing Director of Heathcotes Care said, "Providers of adult services have had a challenging few years and it will only get harder, with local authorities struggling to meet budgets, and funding for adult social care being dramatically cut in recent years. Whilst presenting providers with a new set of challenges, these cuts have also meant that providers in care services have had to look at themselves and the services they offer, to ensure they can prove that are providing clear pathways, enabling the people within their services to develop their life skills and opportunities real to the individual, whilst of course ensuring they are providing local authorities with value for money. I believe the reason we are so successful is because we do this, and we do it well and have been doing so for many years".
Heathcotes can design person-centred care packages and clear pathways for the people that need our specialist support, with the guarantee of real value for money.
