Brickbridge House is a six bedded house where we support adults with learning disabilities, autism and epilepsy.
To ensure that the people we support have their needs met to the highest of standards, we work closely with family members and a range of skilled professionals including:
- Local authorities
- Clinical commissioning groups (CCGs)
- Advocates of the people we support
- Healthcare professionals
Our approach to support:
Our person-centred approach plans are developed in partnership with the people we support and others who are important to them. Each plan is designed to support an individual’s personal choices and aspirations and focuses on what is needed to make that happen. Everyone has an individual, tailor-made support package which helps to form their care plan to best support each individual to achieve their potential, focusing on building positive outcomes for everyone.
The people we support at Brickbridge House are encouraged to make their own choices and lead a fulfilled life whilst developing self-esteem. Our staff encourage each person to list their own goals and outcomes and each individual is supported so that these outcomes are monitored to ensure that, wherever possible, these are achieved. We evaluate each individual’s skills and abilities helping to further develop these at a pace suited to them. These plans are regularly reviewed to reflect individual preferences and the support we provide.
At Brickbridge House, we are committed to enabling and encouraging individuals to develop the skills they need to live as independently as possible, each having their own support plan. We work together and put in place the best support for them, which enables them to direct their own support as much as possible, to make their own choices and to express their views. This is further promoted by Priory Adult Care's communication strategy, "Your Voice", which encourages individuals, based on their preferred method of communication, to voice their views about the support they receive. Monthly meetings are held where individuals are able to represent the views and voices of themselves and others living at the service.
“Staff understand me here and have helped me to also understand myself better.”
