Learning disability services in Calderdale
St. Anne's has a range of services for people with learning disabilities in Calderdale. St. Anne's provision in Calderdale began in 1993 when seven new homes for people leaving Stansfield View Hospital were opened. Since that time, new services have been developed and now include residential and nursing care, supported living, and a respite care and short break service.
The respite and short break service consisting of 11 respite care beds, 2 short stay beds and 1 emergency stay bed. The service can be accessed by guests living in the Halifax area.
Achieving and maintaining high standards of care and support are essential parts of St. Anne's work, and it is pleasing to report that one of our nursing homes, Heatherstones, has been recognised as a "gold standard" service. Heatherstones (view leaflet) is situated a short distance from the centre of Halifax and provides care for seven people with learning disabilities and complex health needs. Each client has a named nurse and key worker who are responsible for the assessment, construction and implementation of a person centred care package. This process identifies goals and objectives unique to each person and it helps them to establish and maintain the most independent and appropriate lifestyle. Under the supported living model, the support element of the service is separate from the provision of accommodation. In these cases, St. Anne's provides the staff support to people living in tenancies agreed with other housing providers. This model of support allows clients to change their support provider without having to move from their home.
