Abbey Lodge is a 7-bed facility in Bushey, Hertfordshire, specialising in providing medium to long-term care and support for service users with moderate to profound Learning Disabilities and other disorders.
These include Austistic Spectrum Disorders, Aspergers, Epilepsy, histories of challenging behaviours and other complex needs.
Abbey Lodge operates Person Centred Software that enables Management and Staff to monitor outcomes and make adjustments to the personalised care plans for each Resident, and also freesup staff time for greater inter-action with Residents both in the Home and through programmes in wider community to promote their re-engagement and social integration.
The direct focus of our care approach at Abbey Lodge is on supporting individuals who challenge the services provided and on engaging Residents to take greater responsibility for their own decision-taking to minimise the incidence of risk.
We engage closely with Families and Stakeholders on reviewing each Resident’s person-centre care plans to promote positive outcomes.
“Residents welcomed us into their Home and told us they felt safe and happy at Abbey Lodge. There was a homely and welcoming atmosphere”. ”
“We observed Staff supporting Residents with a range of communications aids which included signing and interpreting people’s body language. Resident’s permissions were sought before Staff assisted them with care or support”.
“Safe and effective recruitment practices were followed to ensure all Staff were suitably qualified”
