As the national trend towards community care has developed more and more people are being given the opportunity to live in less restrictive environments than traditionally offered. However, the jump from either a residential / nursing home or hospital to a community placement can be an extremely stressful time and is a period of high risk in terms of matching the support with a new set of needs.The uniqueness of this service model is in its flexibility and ability to adapt to an individual’s evolving needs. The service is delivered at various levels with support and care tailored to meet individual needs, with the benefit for individuals of being able to move between the different levels as needs evolve.
Calma House is a shared home with a capacity for up to 6 people, it is a unique placement for individuals that require specialist care and assessment. The Home is designed to reduce the effects of the transition from residential care to the community and has facilities to help assess and develop living skills.
Residents will be offered the opportunity to learn living skills and encouraged to take part in activities in the community. This prepares them for the time when they are able to move into independent living. For example, our staff will assist individuals with:
accessing local community services and activities
liaising with social services
Educational and recreational trips.
