Welcome to Meadowcroft
At Meadowcroft, we build our care and activity plans around an individual, supporting and encouraging people to be happy, cared for and fulfilled.
Making every day better is about achieving the best possible outcomes for those we care for, so we identify goals and outcomes together with individuals, families and professionals.
Service users at Meadowcroft live in one of two units, Connell and Acorn. Each unit has dining room, lounge and an adapted sensory bathroom. Bedrooms can be decorated to suit personal tastes and every room has an accessible ensuite wet room and TV and telephone points.
At Meadowcroft, we understand the importance of good, nutritious food. Our varied restaurant style dining menu is developed with service users to ensure a varied and interesting menu is available to everyone, taking into account personal preferences, condition-speciﬁc and religious dietary requirements.
A therapy kitchen with cooking and laundry facilities allows service users to develop the skills to live more independently.
Meadowcroft House also offers an extended pathway of care independent from the main home. This two-bedroom house is located on the same site and allows service users to live independently while still accessing care and support when needed. This service provides a rehabilitation pathway for those who have met their goals and are looking to return gradually to life in the community. It is also ideal for those with progressive conditions who can still live independently with support nearby.
Meadowcroft benefi ts from extended pathways of care for those requiring a rehabilitation pathway, an individual care environment or pathway into care. Two semi-detached houses are accessed via the garden from Meadowcroft’s main service, making access to care easy. Moving from Meadowcroft into one of the houses gives individuals the opportunity to develop and maintain their life skills
and independence away from the wraparound care of the main home.
Both homes are complete with two ensuite bedrooms, which can be fi tted to suit the individual needs of service users, based on personal tastes, condition, functionality and medication regime. Shared living spaces enable service users to interact with one another, and their guests, whilst also having more independence.
"The OneCare service gives individuals a more independent pathway of care which they can work towards. People are given the opportunity to develop and re-learn their life skills so they can become part of the community, or even return home.” - Home manager, Yvonne Morgan.
Life at Meadowcroft
Social activities, leisure interests and hobbies are all part of a healthy, balanced life. Meadowcroft’s Skills for Life Co-ordinators and service users work together to create meaningful and individual plans. In addition, quarterly service user forums allow people to share their views and develop future activities. As well as group activities, staff facilitate individual hobbies and interests and where appropriate, support to access education and volunteering.
Day trips, dining out in the local community and shopping trips are popular, with service users encouraged to access local facilities to take part in their favourite sports and hobbies. We celebrate seasonal and cultural events and activities, and service users enjoy the cinema room and taking part in pool and snooker tournaments. Service users are supported to go on holiday and an accessible minibus means there is always transport available.
An enclosed patio garden has space for summer barbeques and events. Accessible for all, the garden includes areas for sitting and relaxing as well as gardening and socialising.
Friends, families and visitors
Our open door policy means friends and family are welcome to visit at any time and be involved in care planning and reviews. We encourage everyone to be involved in giving those we look after the best possible quality of life. A dedicated visitors room with a sofa and ensuite toilet is available.
