Ceiling tracking and hoists run throughout the building to enable all guests to have full access to all areas. There is an adapted bathroom and shower room to suit all guests needs.

The service has a spacious lounge with a sensory area so guests can relax and enjoy their visit. There is also a separate sensory room for guests to enjoy.

The service also has access to a adapted vehicle which can be used on evenings and weekends to enable guests to access the wider community and enjoy external activities

Aims and Objectivities

At Shady Trees person centred care is at the forefront of what we strive to achieve, we believe that each and every person should be treated as an individual and their care should reflect this. We have close relationships with families which enables us to achieve the best possible outcome and lives for our guests. We have regular reviews which enable us to establish future needs and what we are working towards and how we can effectively achieve these.

The established nursing team consists of a nursing home manager, qualified nurses and trained support staff. The team all works closely together to provide a the highest standard of care for all guests who access the service. The nurses work closely with guests who have complex needs that include, postural care, epilepsy management, enteral feeding and have access to any further training needed for specific individual complexities. The nursing team work alongside a team of support staff who provide personal cares, nutrition and hydration support and opportunities for social activities.

The service has excellent links with a wide multi disciplinary team which include such health professionals as Speech and Language therapists, Physiotherapists, Occupational therapists and Day centre services. Working like this enables all teams and families to have an input which ensures a continuity of care is provided whilst they are accessing respite.

Coronavirus (Covid 19) Statement

Due to the exceptional circumstances due to the ongoing Coronavirus (also known as Covid 19) and the Government rules about self-isolating it is very important to reduce the risk of cross infection to all our Clients and staff teams. Our teams are working hard to support all our clients and are committed to keeping everyone as safe as possible.

This means that, in most circumstances, and in line with government information regarding self-isolation and staying at home there should be no visitors to any of our services.

We know, however, that this will be very distressing for some of our Clients.

Therefore, we are saying there must be no visitors to services unless there are exceptional circumstances and the visit is essential.

Before a visit can take place, this must be risk assessed by the manager considering government advice and the individual circumstances. Before setting off on any visit to your relative/friend please get in contact with St Anne’s staff to discuss your visit.

Our services are using all kinds of technology, including social media to make sure that the people we support can stay in touch with those important to them

St Anne’s has developed a visitors protocol to enable visits to begin again in North Yorkshire and East Yorkshire care homes.

In line with Government & local Council Guidelines each Client may have one family member or other person who is close to them visit on a regular basis.

Decisions where visitors can go are being based on Individual Local Authority advice following Government guidelines.

And this message will be updated regularly
