Godfrey Barnes Care is delighted to announce the completion of its new self-contained extension added onto the Field House site. As part of the close working relationships we have built with the social worker team in the Staffordshire region a need was identified for a setting that would allow service users to experience a more independent setting whilst still being part of a home where support was available. As we strive to support our service users to ultimately take the step towards completing a transition into an independent scenario this self-contained flat, with its own living area and kitchen is the perfect place to allow us help our service users develop those skills that will be crucial to their independent futures. Although the build process wasn’t without its challenge the end product is every bit what we hoped it to be. Since it was completed a service user has moved into the self-contained extension and started their journey towards a more independent life in the future.
