At Shaw, we know that family is important, and we know how important it is for families to feel connected, be included, be informed and be a part of their loved one’s life. Our employees are dedicated and committed to provide the best quality of care, support and understanding to every family member relating to those who use our services.
The care we deliver has adapted over time to accommodate industry best practice, the changing needs of communities and the local authorities, but the constant is ensuring that our care is person-centred. No individual is the same - their likes, dislikes and life experiences determine who they are and how they like to be treated.
Individual care plans capture these and assists those who deliver care and allow the individual to feel independent, dignified and respected.
Our care environments are ergonomically designed to complement the delivery of person-centred care. Our architecture considers optimising daylight, creating clear pathways, engaging interiors but we never forget that these are peoples’ homes, so we try to make them comfortable and homely.
We consider the time periods that would have been golden years for our residents and decorate some areas to evoke reminiscence.
Some prefer to be in their own environments and we are also able to provide the level of care that individuals require at a frequency that suits their needs.
We also operate specialist services to cater for specific care types; community care hubs, high/low secure mental health, Acquired Brain Injuries, Learning Disability, Physical Disabilities, Intermediate Care Units and Rehabilitation.
At our residential services we have activity programmes to promote healthy minds and wellbeing. We adapt our programmes based on the feedback of our individuals and try to promote creativity and enjoyment. Individuals are invited to participate but it is not compulsory.
We employ chefs at our services to deliver varied meals that provide flavour and nutrition. Our menus rotate monthly and are peppered with family favourites, there are always alternative options to cater for all tastes; fish & chips, roast dinners, pies, soups/casseroles, bangers & mash.
We have communal eating areas with laid tables or individuals can eat in their own rooms if they choose.
Any medical, cultural or religious dietary requirements are included in individual’s care plans.
Our services are purpose-built care facilities with an emphasis on home and community. There are areas to socialise and partake in activities that you can select from a schedule, plus there are areas to dine communally, should you wish, alternatively you can dine in your own room.
We always extend a warm welcome to visitors and hope that we become an extension of your family as much as you become a part of the Shaw family.
We care for those with dementia on an individual basis. A person’s experiences, feelings and values are unique and an individual dealing with dementia can feel a range of emotions that are personally challenging. We seek to provide continuity and a sense of belonging to make our care homes feel like the individuals’ home; by engaging with the individuals’ family we use sensory stimulation to evoke reminiscence and recollection of life events which can make residents feel of value and contented. Dementia care is supplemented by frequent assessments to ensure the correct level of care is provided.
All care workers are specifically trained and will have achieved recognised dementia qualifications which equips them with the skills to provide enhanced care. Qualified nurses attend training to ensure all professional requirements are met. We regularly monitor our employees’ skill levels and provide supplementary training to ensure we are delivering the best quality of care.
We provide person-centred care and treatment programmes for people with a primary diagnosis of mental illness with or without physical disability including patients who might have committed a criminal act due to their illness.
Individuals can attend one of our facilities that operate Day Care to socialise or interact with peer groups.
