Outstanding service!

Our main goals as a service provider is to provide the highest levels of care to all our service users to allow them to have the best standards of living with our support. Part of the test to this ambition is carried out through our CQC inspections, so it comes as great feeling for us to have all the hard work being recognised in our most recent CQC inspection at Field House where we obtained an overall Outstanding rating for this service. 

It gives us a huge sense of pride that all our efforts and our mission to champion the needs of all our service users have been recognised by all the professionals, families and now CQC in this outstanding report.  

Some of the key highlights of the full report:

  • Staff were kind and caring towards people and had developed very trusting and mutually respectful relationships
  • The service provided exceptionally responsive, person-centred support and focused on highly individualised support, which had achieved some exceptional outcomes for people.
  • Through highly detailed and focused care planning and support people had become significantly more independent

Another step in our journey

The team at Godfrey Care are delighted to share with you the latest home that we have purchased to expand our specialist residential service in the region. The home is based in the picturesque settings of Roleston on Dove. The home is an existing residential property that we are currently redeveloping and will be refurbished to the usual high spec, comprising of six en-suite bedrooms with 24 hours support from our specialist care staff. In addition there will be a large open plan kitchen, two separate communal lounges, a shared bathroom for those that like to use a bath rather than a shower and large outside garden areas. As with its sister sites Field House and Ashby House, Station House will be staffed with NAPPI trained staff, which is particularly useful when working with service users with  challenging behaviours, autism and epilepsy. 

We will keep you posted with progress and opportunities for those who are interested in joining our growing team.

We’re all going on a summer holiday!

At Godfrey Barnes Care, we believe in providing opportunities for more social inclusion and community integration. It can have a transformative impact on the lives of our service users, especially those who are naturally hesitant to explore and experience new surroundings. With the summer in full swing this was an exciting time of year for the service users in anticipation of going on their holidays. For some this would be the first opportunity that they have had to go on an actual holiday.

Tattershall Lakes was chosen as the location set in the heart of the gorgeous Lincolnshire countryside. Service users spent their days going for walks enjoying the beautiful scenery, visiting local attractions such as the East Coast markets and fair, as well as the water park and on-site facilities and entertainment. After the busy days everyone had the chance to unwind in the evenings in their very own hot tub and recharge the batteries. 

A huge success for all!

Dreams come true!

CN has a lifelong love of music, which plays a big part of most days for him. CN often commented on how much he wanted to go to a rave and experience being part of a crowd and enjoying all that it had to offer, this was recognised as one of CN’s life goals. Staff at Field House knowing how much this would mean to CN started to look at different venues and types of concert which available, and tickets were booked for CN to try out his first event at Fake Festival.

Staff kept it as surprise from CN and when he received his tickets and told of the plan he was elated! CN was understandably very excited prior to his big day CN and was supported by Dan and Michelle to get his essentials packed for the big day out. When CN got to the event he quickly got into his grove and danced the day away, interacting with other festival goers enjoying the music. There was food, drinks and glitter tattoos. After many hours of chords, drums and sing along CN was tired and ready for home. Ready to plan his next venture!

AF moved into Field House back in January 2018. AF needed support to develop a healthier and more active lifestyle. The team at Field House worked with engaging AF in planning his meals to ensure that he was able to have a healthy balanced diet. Although AF initially wasn’t keen on the idea he quickly adapted and the benefits of eating a healthier diet were quickly noticed by lifelong friends and family. The dietician visited to see if they could help with AF’s weight loss journey but were so impressed with his ongoing success that they discharged him and the team at Field House continued to work with AF. A big part of this success story was giving AF the opportunity to plan his meals by utilising the pictorial menus we use within the homes to help residents have an active role in meal planning.

The next step was working on improving AF’s confidence and getting him motivated to get out and about within the community and taking part in a variety of activities. AF now thoroughly enjoys getting out to help with doing the shop for the home as he takes a lead role in the meal planning, no longer having to use a mobility scooter but instead walking around and getting hands on! Other activities such as his lifelong love for swimming have been rekindled for him and is something that he really looks forward to doing. All of this has helped AF lose a huge 10st since he moved in!

What’s next then for AF? Well, AF now accesses the community much more frequently, has tried out a volunteering job, planning to go on a holiday and has applied for a place at college which starts in September as well as exploring the countryside and enjoying a much more active lifestyle. Well done to AF we’re all so proud!
