The Params Care is registered for thirteen adults with learning disabilities and provides staff support around the clock. Our occupancy rate has remained full for more than 20 years.
We have no fixed range of abilities or needs. The new residents are assessed for their suitability by personality and ability to mix with the existing residents. Whatever the individual’s needs are we hope that we will be able to address those needs. However, we do not cater for people with severe challenging behaviour. We hope to provide a home for life.
Vacancies rarely occur. However, we are happy to hear from you. Applications are usually made with the support and backing of your local authority. They will complete a community care assessment, which we require prior to any new admissions. However prior to new admission we spend time ‘getting to know each other’. You will be invited to visits and view our facilities and the resident will be invited to come for tea and see how you get on with others living in the home. A small sample of what life is like at home helps to prepare the way. We are also happy to offer an overnight or a weekend stay prior to admission. However, we acknowledge that everyone is different and therefore we don’t have a set formula, rather we approach this major life change with sensitivity and flexibility according to the individual’s needs. Please do get in touch with any queries you may have.
Our management team and staff are carefully selected and trained. We are an equal opportunities employer. We are interested in hearing from anyone who enjoys working with people that with a learning disability. You must be motivated and committed to provide a high level of care and support to the residents. We offer basic induction and foundation to all our staff. We also support staff to continue their training to achieve QCF L4.
We generally enjoy a stable staff team, however vacancies do occur from time to time so please get in touch for a chat and to arrange a visit to the home.
