Our new respite support bungalow is up and ready to go. The bungalow is a homely 4 bedroom bungalow with a staff bedroom/office for 24 hour support. It has a kitchen and bathroom and shower room and lounge diner. Each bedroom has its own TV with an integrated DVD player and Freeview, CD/radio player, wardrobe and chest of drawers. People are welcome to bring whatever they would like also to personalize their rooms during their stay. All towels, bed linen, food and drinks are included in their stay (including all food necessary for special diets). Clothes’s washing is also included.
People seeking support to use the bungalow are welcomed to come and look round prior to staying and we can also come to their home to do an initial assessment to make sure all aspects of their care are catered for. Iceni Care offer person-centered support at all times with choice at the core of that support. Parents and carers are invited to have input with all support plans. All support plans are tailored to each individual person. Support staff are trained to support people with their medication and together with all other policies and procedures the medication policy and procedures are available for viewing.
Unfortunately at this time Diana Lodge is unable to support people using a wheelchair unless they can be mobile within the bungalow. It is hoped that this will change in the future.
If day care is required this can be provided either within the bungalow or at the Iceni Care day centre. Weekend support includes day care.
We look forward to having you stay with us here at Diana Lodge…..
