Located in Aigburth Liverpool, St. Joseph’s provides care and support for 18 adults (aged 18 years to 65 years) with an aquired brain injury, a neurological disorder and or a physical disability.
The heart of St Josephs is its brand new purpose built facility (opened in September 2008), which is set in its own grounds, complete with its own landscaped gardens. St Josephs is committed to providing a person centred plan which is specifically tailored to the needs of the adults living there. Accommodation is provided with single bedrooms, which are furnished to a high standard and are all en-suite.
St. Josephs has two lounges, a rehab kitchen and lounge and a large patio area at the rear, overlooking the building. the building is a non smoking facility; however there is a designated area for those service users who wish to smoke.
Service users are encouraged and supported to follow their own interests, including activities outside the home. Volunteers frequently visit St. Josephs offering services to the residents such as accompanying them on activities at their request and giving access to facilities within the local community.
The guiding philosophy of St. Joseph’s is to provide an excellent standard of care in pleasant surroundings. This means that we are concerned for the whole person and their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. We take care to respect everyone’s privacy and personal dignity, and to provide every possible opportunity for service users to make choices, to be independent and fulfilled. Our vision of a person centred plan places our service users at the centre of service delivery and ensures as far as possible that the service users are given control over their lives.
St. Joseph’s is staffed 24 hours a day. A senior member of staff is on duty at all times and a Key Worker system is used to support service users. All staff are regularly trained and updated.
