Principles of Residential Care

Principles of Residencial Care

Residents should be happy, healthy, safe from harm and able to develop, thrive and fulfil their potential.

We value and nurture each resident as an individual with talents, strengths and capabilities.

We foster positive relationships, encouraging strong bonds between residents and staff in the home on the basis of joint activities, shared daily life and domestic and non-domestic routines.

We nurture learning and ambitions for their future.

We are attentive to residents’ needs, supporting emotional, mental and physical health needs and encouraging friendships.

We are outward facing, working with the wider system of professionals for each resident, and their families.

We have high expectations of staff as committed members of a team, as decision makers and as activity leaders. Cabrini House should ensure all staff and managers are engaged in on-going learning about their role and the residents they work with.

We provide a safe and stimulating environment in high-quality buildings, with spaces that support nurture and allow privacy as well as common spaces and spaces to be active.
