As Thornhill Road is a nursing home, there is always a registered learning disability nurse on duty. Thornhill Road provides support for its clients 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
What does the Service offer
Thornhill Road is a purpose built bungalow with 7 individual bedrooms, 2 lounges, 2 kitchens, 4 bathrooms, a conservatory and garden areas to front and rear. The home is equipped with specialist equipment including tracking, hoists and baths, and has recently gained the Gold Standard Framework Award.
Each client has an annual person centred plan review to ensure they are fully supported in all areas of their lives.
The home strongly promotes inclusion, and the people living there are consulted in decisions effecting them and their lives, regardless of their level of ability.
The 24 hour nursing support available at the home enables clients living at the service to have specialised treatment in a friendly and relaxed home environment. This extends to end of life and palliative care, but the emphasis is always on supporting people to live as active and fulfilling life as possible.
Everyone living at Thornhill Road is supported to pursue a range of leisure and social opportunities such as hydrotherapy, day trips, annual holidays, education and occupational activities.
Aims and Objectives of the Service
