Positive Relationships

Positive Relationships

Family members, legal guardians and significant others will be encouraged to participate in all aspects of the general welfare of the resident (where appropriate).

We have an open house policy at Cabrini House - family members are free to visit and can join residents for a meal together sometimes. We would encourage visitors to respect the day to day routine of the homes and prior knowledge of visits would be greatly appreciated.

We will work closely with family members and social workers in order to maximise the opportunities to be gained by the resident in our care. Our staff will help residents to liaise with their social worker and there is no restriction on visits or contact between residents and social workers. Copies of all reports, including significant incident reports, will be sent to the appropriate social worker, in order to maintain a positive working relationship. Key workers will engage with all professionals and family members on a regular basis to keep them all updated about the resident’s care.
