Aims and Objectives of the Service

The aim of the team at Newhaven is to treat each person living in the home as an individual and staff support them to:

  • Live life as independently as possible
  • have a plan of care that is person centred
  • be as self-fulfilled as they want to be
  • join in with and be a part of communities of their choice

Our philosophy is to provide each individual person a quality life with the most chances to develop whilst living in a safe and stimulating environment. We will support each individual person to access local facilities, enabling and empowering individuals to reach their full potential using a Person Centred Approach.

What does the Service offer

We offer 24 hour support with waking night cover. We take a holistic approach but nursing and medical care is sourced via the NHS.

Staff support each client individually according to their assessed needs with daily living tasks, social and leisure interests, and the maintenance of their health and personal care.

All clients and those within their support circle are consulted on their support needs and wishes via the person centred planning and review process. Clients are supported whenever possible to make decisions in all aspects of their lives, including activities, holidays, clothes, menu planning, decoration and choice of furniture within the home etc.

Clients are supported whenever possible to access activities of their choice within the local community. Staff also support clients to pursue existing or develop new hobbies and interests, maintain/promote friendships and family relationships, to use community facilities such as shops, libraries, sport centres, pubs and clubs etc.

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, East Yorkshire, Durham, Middlesbrough and Leeds 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.
