Following an enquiry, a referral form will be sent out for completion.

On return all referrals are considered at a weekly Referrals meeting. The Person in Charge and another senior staff member from the Multi-Disciplinary Team are assigned to carry out an initial assessment.

Following this assessment a report is presented to the Referrals meeting following which a decision is made as to whether a suitable placement can be offered. If the decision is that a placement can be offered then a series of engagement and transition meetings take place with the family, the Resident, relevant members of the referral team and staff to support a seamless and smooth transition to our service. The Resident and their family are encouraged to visit the house prior to admission to meet staff, view the facilities and meet the other Residents.
