Aims and Objectives of the Service
Oxfield Court Nursing Service aims to provide high standards of support for individuals within the service whilst ensuring clients have opportunities to develop their independence. The service provides holistic support and provides quality services in all areas of clients’ lives which encompass the environment in which the clients live, personal care, social and leisure activities, supporting social and family relationships and spirituality.
The service aims to achieve this by:
- Treating clients with respect and dignity at all times, by utilising St Anne’s and Kirklees Safeguarding Policies.
- Respecting clients’ confidentiality in all aspects of their lives.
- Following a person centred approach to ensure clients’ needs, preferences and wishes are at the centre of all support plans. Clients are consulted in all areas of their lives via person centred planning meetings, client meetings and client satisfaction surveys. Oxfield Court aims to make the formats of these accessible for each client.
- Ensuring clients are provided with informed choices regarding community resources and are supported to access and participate in community life.
- Staff within the home are well trained and ensure they remain current in their thinking and practice in order to provide an innovative service in line with national and legislative guidance. Staff promote inter-partnership working to achieve this.
