In 2018 Happy Futures opened Kelly’s Place. Working closely with NHS England and the Clinical Commissioning Group, the facility has been developed to meet extremely high standards and support will be based on a model specifically for supporting people with profound and multiple learning disabilities to ensure that core and essential services standards are always met and exceeded. Kelly’s Place has also received a GOOD rating from the Care Quality Commission. If you would like to know more about our CQC rating, please click here.
The bespoke two-bedroom respite facility has en suite bathrooms with adequate moving space for wheelchairs. The entire unit is also fitted with tracker hoists. In addition to that, Kelly’s Place also has a big lounge, a fully equipped kitchen and a sensory room. The facility has been specifically designed to easily accommodate up to two individuals in a safe and comfortable environment. Respite breaks in Kelly’s Place can be planned or unplanned in the case of an emergency. In addition to offering exceptional support for the individual, respite allows families and primary caregivers a break from their daily care-related duties in order to look after their own health and well-being as this can greatly impact the quality of care and support they can offer. Kelly’s Place can also be helpful in transitional phases where an individual can be prepared for full-time support in a care home or in domiciliary support. Kelly’s Place offers support for up to 28 days. The facility will offer 24-hour support 7 days a week from specialist staff. Depending on the individual’s needs, Kelly’s Place offers one-to-one or two-to-one support with full day support and waking nights should it be required.
