Welcome to Meadowcroft
At Meadowcroft we build our care plans around an individual, supporting, nurturing and encouraging them to live happy, fulfilled lives.
Service users at Meadowcroft live in one of two units, Connell and Acorn. Each ten bedded unit has a dining room, lounge and an adapted sensory bathroom. Bedrooms are decorated to suit personal tastes and every room has an accessible ensuite wet room, and TV point.
At Meadowcroft, we value and appreciate good, nutritious food. Our 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.

|The referral process||OneCare service|
Meadowcroft benefits from extended pathways of care for those requiring a rehabilitation pathway, an individual care environment or a pathway into care. Meadowcroft’s OneCare services, a detached house and a semi-detached house, are only a short walk away from the main home, 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 fitted 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.
Meadowcroft provides care and support to individuals living with enduring mental ill-health, as well as other complex behavioural and physical needs. Supported by families, professionals and the specialist staff at Meadowcroft, service users can transition into the OneCare service as they reach the personal rehabilitation goals outlined in their care plans.
For a number of years, Lesley moved from care home to care home, as her needs were not being met, or she simply couldn’t settle in her surroundings.
Living with complex mental ill-health, Lesley required one-to-one support on arrival at Meadowcroft. For two years, Lesley was encouraged to find ways to recognise when her behaviour might escalate, and manage her own behaviour in a more positive way.
Making quick progress, Lesley completed the goals laid out in her personal care plan and was given the opportunity to move into Meadowcroft’s OneCare service.
in May 2016, Lesley worked with the Meadowcroft team to furnish and decorate her own bedroom, and ensure the house was tailored to her needs.
Today, Lesley says she is more at home than she has ever felt before, couldn’t be happier and appreciates the support of the team throughout the service.
"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
