Holistic care from an in-house Nurse-led team
Our homes are led by an experienced Nurse-led management team, and supported by a trained in-house team of Registered Nurses and Health Care Assistants.
Each of our homes has a Life Skills/Activities Team to support with holistic and therapeutic treatments, and many of them have in-house Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists. Everyone who lives in our homes also has the support of Exemplar Health Care’s clinical experts including our team of Behaviour Support Specialists.
This enables people to access holistic care and a range of services in a community-based home that’s closer to their friends and family.
We also work closely with community teams and other professionals, where required, to ensure that people receive the required support to meet all of their needs following a spinal injury.
- Life skills – our Life Skills Teams support people to maximise their independence, optimise daily living and take part in meaningful activities to improve their wellbeing.
- Physiotherapy – for those who have partial spinal damage, our Physiotherapists support people to regain movement, where possible, work with their current levels of mobility, and learn new ways of doing everyday tasks to maximise their independence. For those who have total damage, our Physiotherapists support people to maintain optimal muscle function and limit/delay deterioration for as long as possible.
- Occupational therapy – our Occupational Therapists help people to overcome the effects of their spinal injury, by considering their physical, psychological, social and environmental needs.
