|Service user engagement||Goals & outcomes|
Service users at Kavanagh Place live in four 10-bed units, Abbey Road, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields and Mathew Street.
Kavanagh Place brings together NHS specialist neurological nurses at in-home Huntington’s disease clinics. Hosting clinics at Kavanagh Place avoids changes in routine and the frustration of long hospital waits and service users benefit from expert consultant care in a familiar environment.
Kavanagh Place’s OneCare service, a two bedroomed house, is just a short walk up the garden path from the main home, giving people on a rehabilitation pathway, those entering care and people requiring a sole-occupancy environment the opportunity to live with more independence.
Each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and the shared lounge, kitchen and dining room allow service users to interact with one another, and their guests, whilst also developing their independence, in a home from home environment.
The house can be adapted to suit the individual needs of service users, from decorating to their personal tastes to ensuring their home is well-suited to their physical requirements.
Kavanagh Place encourages service users to work towards achieving their personal goals, and further develop their independence and life skills. Service users can move into the OneCare service when they are ready – whilst still having the support of the main home as and when they require.
Supported by specialist nurses and life-skills teams, service users can further progress their journey to independence before returning to life within the community.
