Children's Residential Care
Children’s Residential Care - The First Blue Way
First Blue Healthcare provides residential care homes for children and young people, who for a variety of reasons are unable to be looked after by their families. Some but not all have complex needs and may display challenging behaviour, others may be at risk of harm if left in their home environment. Whatever the reason, our homes provide a safe, comfortable and supportive place to live.
The individual needs of children are and always will be at the forefront of First Blue Healthcare. And although our teams are corporate parents to the children and young people who live with us, we put a large emphasis on the nurturing aspect of our care. This more natural approach, where we take the time to listen, talk and empathise with the children is an important aspect of building confidence and trust. In return, we can get a better understanding of who they are, what they want and their emotional needs. This approach is essential in order to ensure we provide the right level of personalised support when and where it’s needed.
Building Confidence Through Participation
We facilitate and encourage children to achieve to the best of their ability in everything they do. Educationally this may mean providing support that will enable them to remain in mainstream education, or it could mean looking for more specialist provisions. All our young people have the opportunity to participate in existing hobbies and interests or embark on new ones and this hopefully will help them to build confidence and self–esteem.
Our dedicated staff are a vital part of our organisation and it’s their experience and knowledge that ensures the best outcomes for all our children in our care. Therefore it’s important that staff receive the very best support and training, which we provide through structured training programs, regular supervision, and development appraisals. As a company this approach has enabled us to grow and develop into an outstanding care provider, delivering the highest quality of support to our young people and the staff who look after them.
Not just a place to live but a home!
Our homes provide an alternative aspect to the more traditional type of children’s home. Simply put we provide caring warm family homes where children can feel loved, cared for and safe. This includes providing outstanding support using the latest knowledge and developments to help assist some of our children and young people who at times present with challenging behaviour and who may have additional needs. Overall, we aim to provide the best possible care available.
