Langley Lodge

136 Deighton Road, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, HD2 1JS

Langley Lodge is a purpose built 6 bedded home providing accomodation for people with learning and/or physical disabilities. The home is fully accessible for wheelchair users or people with limited mobility, with overhead tracking available in all bedrooms and the communal bathroom. All people supported have their own personalised bedrooms with private en-suite facilities and additional equipment that is identifed as being needed; for example, specialist shower chairs, profiling beds etc.

Communal areas consist of a kitchen / dining room, living area, sensory room, main bathroom and additional toilet. A laundry room is also available.

External to the home is a rear garden which is fenced at the perimeter with gates situated at each end. The garden is accessible to all the people supported and has garden furniture available.

In order to provide additional space for people supported to engage in activities and time away from the other communal areas of the home in a quiet area, a garden room has been installed. This has been designed according to the wishes and needs of the people supported in the home to maximise its benefit.

At the side of the house are parking facilities for staff, visitors and the house vehicle which is used to transport people supported to activities and appointments.

All staff are recruited following stringent procedures ensuring potential candidates are interviewed and suitably vetted with a full employment history and DBS obtained. Once appointed, staff receive an induction and undertake the Care Certificate and all training identified as mandatory by Horizon Healthcare. Other training is also expected to be completed in line with the home’s individual requirements and to encourage ongoing continuous professional development. This includes staff enrolling on an appropriate qualification according to their job role. (Health and social care diplomas level 2 & 3 as well as Team Leading Diplomas and further management qualifications).

Rota’s are planned according to the individual needs of the people being supported and according to agreed funding levels. The rotas are adjusted accordingly with extra staffing provided when required for appointments, hospital stays, activities parties etc.

Within the care support team there are support workers, two team leaders, a deputy manager and a manager. There are two waking night staff members each night to support the 6 people living in the home.

Additionally, Langley Lodge also has 2 part-time handymen / drivers to assist with maintenance and driving duties.

Each person supported has their own individual, unique support plan which is built around them and in conjunction with them and their circle of support. People supported are encouraged to maximise their independence, communication and choice making and have a variety of activities available to them. Examples of these include attending music therapy sessions which are provided by the organisation, going to hydrotherapy and rebound therapy, attending day centres and accessing aromatherapy. Trips out are regularly planned and in-house activities are always available with a range of sensory equipment, games, books and pampering items accessible.

People supported have opportunities to attend house meetings and also have a monthly review with their allocated keyworker to identify goals and aspirations and to discuss areas of importance to them. This all links into the person-centred approach that the organisation strives to achieve.
