We specialise in supporting people who have varying needs as a result of physical and long term neurological conditions including cerebral palsy, epilepsy, head/brain injury, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, Parkinson’s disease, speech impairment, spina bifida and hydrocephalus.
Our care teams are highly skilled and trained to deliver specialist complex care and have significant experience with medication administration, tissue viability management and the provision of end of life care. The full-time support we provide is flexible and designed to help build skills, inspire confidence and encourage people to live more independently. We work directly with each individual to develop a personalised support programme based on their needs, wishes and aspirations. This includes personal care, health & wellbeing programmes, rehabilitation, community engagement, enablement, volunteering and activities.
Worked in the Social Care Industry for 25 years. In 1995 I started my career as a day service worker in a Resource/Day Services setting, after a short period of time I was promoted to senior day service worker and then team leader overseeing the day to day running of the resource centre and managing the staff team.
In 2004 I left the Resource Centre to manage a direct payment service in Derby City Centre working with individuals in community settings providing a number of social group activities as well as providing more intensive 1-1 services which included supporting people to gain employment or providing tailor made programmes which supported people to gain the information, skills, equipment and confidence to access services independently.
In 2007 I moved to become the registered manager of Holme Lodge.
