Breakfast with Santa

As part of the Christmas spirit all service users at our homes had the special opportunity to meet Santa Clause and have breakfast with him in the run up to Christmas day. The morning was hosted at the Riverside Hotel and service users and staff alike had a great morning with Santa who gave out Christmas presents to everyone there. 

This was a hugely successful morning for every one of the service users, some of which can find social occasions difficult, yet really enjoyed themselves achieving some of their goals. 

It was a great way to get all the service users from the different homes together to have a joint activity and really positive to see the great interaction between everyone there.

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!
