Birkdale Road is a home for up to 5 people who require ongoing support in daily living activities from a team of support workers who provide support 24 hours a day. The home has 5 bedrooms, 3 en-suite, and a large communal lounge and kitchen. It is located close to local shops and is a short walk from the centre of Dewsbury. Local health centres and Dewsbury District Hospital are also within easy reach.
We offer support in all areas of daily living skills and aim to support people towards independence by tailoring their support plans using the Recovery Star to identify areas of their life where they feel they have goals they would like to achieve and working towards these goals collaboratively with their identified keyworker and the rest of the staff team.
We have a team of staff, including a manager and deputy manager, with diverse backgrounds and skills who work together to promote the best outcomes for people who live in the service. Staff are trained in all mandatory courses including emergency aid, food hygiene, safeguarding, equality and diversity, and mental capacity. Staff also take on other relevant qualifications such as NCFE level 2 in Mental Health Awareness.
