I have found St. James Mews to be very effective and efficient with communication especially with raising safeguarding’s and alerting care management with incidents reports on behalf of their clients and contacting partners. St. James Mews have a very good understanding of their clients and deliver person-centred care and support tailored to their needs.
Staff are effective in building good relationships with their clients and partners to deliver the best possible care. Staff promote client strengths, abilities through positive reinforcement to enable clients to achieve their full potential. Staff also, enforce boundaries and consequences where possible to enable clients to understand the impact of challenging behaviour through their PBS team, and where possible lean on partners to access help and intervention.

I had a lovely conversation with her yesterday, and she said, “Now I’m much better I would like to think about horse riding again!”
She was a very good rider and had lots of rosettes. This was really encouraging and a sign her confidence and self-worth are back.
Thank you again for all this hard work. We feel she has coped amazingly well in lockdown, and we can see her returning to her potential again.

Good afternoon, Louie, Good afternoon, Kristen.
We would just like to take this opportunity to say thank you, to you, and to all the staff at Coppice Care for the wonderful care that you have all shown to Chris over the last 12 months. Again, this has been another especially difficult year under the extreme circumstances that this year has brought us all. It all must have been very difficult, very frustrating, and very tiring at times, but as usual, you and all your staff have provided the wonderful care and devotion that Chris is so dependent on. This is of course very evident by the smile that Chris always has when we see him and that cheerful laugh he has when you’re chatting with him and that he is always fit and well. And this is all down to the wonderful care he receives. Hopefully 2022 will bring us all a much better and a much easier year for everyone.
Best wishes and kind regards,

Just a quick email to wish you and your staff a happy new year and to thank you for all you have done and are doing for …
In the past I feel he has not had the support and understanding that you give him, and this has definitely shown in the great improvements we see in him. Since being with you he has had few “down” periods and you seem to know him well enough to see these coming and out actions in place to help him.
He has benefited from all the efforts you put into his diet, exercise, and social care and at last he has given up smoking.
He really for the seems to feel at home with you and this can only be good for him.

I would like to say that I was impressed with Jill’s progress at her S117 review. It was wonderful to hear that she is becoming more independent and doing more activities in the community. The reduction of incidents and the fact that Jill is engaging in activities that she likes. Listening to the parent’s feedback was also a testament to the fantastic working relationship that you have built with them. Please extend our compliments to your team for their hard work as this really shone through on the day. They have built a fantastic therapeutic relationship with Jill and clearly understand her needs. Keep up the good work.

I also wanted to acknowledge the great work that is being done by the manager and staff at Crossbrook. They have been very proactive, helpful, and responsive throughout her time there and I agree that their input has been a huge reason why she has been doing well. She clearly has a good relationship with and responds well to many of the staff supporting her, which is wonderful.
