  The individual resident's agreed plan of care or service plan provides the basis on which Berrystead's care service is delivered. Each person's care plan includes a description of their preferred daily routine, their likes and dislikes in relation to food, any specific dietary requirements and similar matters. It includes their preferences in respect to how they like to be addressed and what dignity, privacy and respect means to them in terms of daily behaviour and actions.

The care plan also contains a risk assessment and any risk management plan needed. Each resident is allocated a member of the care staff to act as key worker. Their team leader, who will share responsibility for chairing reviews and liasing with outside professionals, offer key workers regular supervision.

The daily care programme is organised as a response to resident's individual and combined needs. All meal times are flexible and residents can arrange to have their meals in their own rooms or in the dining room. Our communal areas are divided into zones e.g. quiet zone (for reading etc.), listening and viewing zone (with TV). This provides and reflects resident's individual choices.

We are commited to maintaining & improving the quality of our service
