Orchardview Care Services is a small family run business established 17 years ago to provide care for the elderly; in 1999 it changed its registration in order to provide care and support for the learning disabled/ mild challenging behaviour group.
It was founded and still owned by Lyn Matthews and Rodney Matthews, with full support from the deputy Manager as well as a well trained team of support workers.
From the management team to the newly inducted support worker, we all regularly attend appropriate training and skills courses. This enables us to provide a high quality, modern and focused care and support service to our 6 Service Users, with learning disability/ mild challenging behaviour and our day service users.
Initial care plans are drawn up, and after a suitable assessment period reviewed. Regular reviews and assessments are conducted at appropriate times.
At this present time we are unable to offer a nursing, emergency or respite service, but hope to cater for the latter two in the future.
Service users are encouraged to make a positive input into the day to day running of their home. This, along with primary support and encouragement, helps the Service User achieve a level of independence and self worth. The thoughts and recommendations of family members and advocates into the care of the Service User are also welcomed.
The Service Users at South View, which is a spacious, 6 bed roomed, detached bungalow in a rural setting, can expect a very high level of personal care and support from our staff, who are committed to ensuring the maximum potential of each Service User is achieved. They will also ensure that the service users’ rights to privacy are observed and that Service Users are treated with respect and dignity.
The Service Users’ rights to choice are also respected. They are offered many structured activities and the use of a day service, as well as making the most of visits from professionally recognised bodies. The taking part in local community events and Church services is also promoted.
There are also many policies and procedures in place to ensure that the safety and well being of the service user is ensured, some are enclosed and others can be produced on request.
