What is children’s residential care

 

Residential care is where young people go who cannot be looked after by their families, who display challenging behaviour or who are at risk – or is it?

 

The individual needs of children are and always will be at the forefront of First Blue Healthcare.  Our teams are corporate parents to the children and young people who live with us and as well as meeting their day to day needs they will spend time listening and trying to understand what is going on for each child. Children will be encouraged to achieve educationally and this may mean supporting to remain in mainstream school or 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.  We have created a culture within our company that is transparent and honest in all we do.  Our staff are the most vital asset we have and therefore, we promote the care of our staff so they can carry out their roles with due diligence and care.

Reflection will be encouraged to ensure we grow and develop into an outstanding provider that delivers the highest quality of care to our young people and staff teams.  This will be achieved through training, development, and regular supervision and appraisals.  At First Blue Healthcare we provide an alternative home for children and young people who are no longer able to live with their own families.  However, although alternative we always create family homes where children can feel loved and cared for.

Our care is progressive in nature, and supports children and young people who, at times, present with behaviour that challenges and who may also have additional needs.
