The home is situated on a main bus route with good links to neighbouring villages and Bradford City Centre.

Roxburgh Lodge has two adapted vehichles which can carry up to 1 wheelchair each and 4 other passengers including the driver. These vehicles are used to take people we support to appointments and activities in the community.

Each person to be supported at Roxburgh Lodge has their own person centred care plan which is specific to them, within which information has been gathered from the individual and / or their circle of support. The people supported are to be encouraged to be as independent as possible and to live a fullfilled and happy life.

The company has already established very good relationships with professional bodies who will work alongside the team at Roxburgh Lodge to provide high quality care and achieve positive outcomes for individuals.

The people supported are involved in the day to day running of the home as much as possible, including recuitment, activity choices, décor, menus, and daily living skills, with the support of their individual keyworker and the full staff team.

The people supported are facilitated to hold house meetings every month where they can discuss and identify any areas of importance to them.

Goals and aspirations are discussed in monthly reviews which take place with keyworkers. This information is used to inform the periodic person centred planning meetings.

As with other homes in the company activities on offer might include music therapy, aromatherapy, hydrotherapy, bowling, cinema, ice skating, shopping, meals out, theatre and many more with lots of spontaneous trips out, dependent upon the wishes of those people living in the home.

The people supported will be involved with the planning and interview process of new staff. Potential candidates will be suitably vetted with a full employment history and DBS obtained before being recruited. Value based recruitment processes will be implemented. Once the person has been appointed they undergo a full 12 weeks induction including the care certificate and mandatory training. Any further training needs identified for the service or personal progression will be encouraged through the supervision process.

Rota’s will be planned according to the individual needs of the people being supported and according to agreed funding levels (based upon detailed assessment information obtained prior to admission). The rotas are adjusted accordingly with extra staffing provided when required for appointments, hospital stays, activities parties etc.
