Despite the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement, which has not done anything to plug the funding gaps in the generally rather precarious social care sector, we are still moving onwards and upwards!
So, this week, we are completing on two new homes in Basingstoke. They are two neighbouring bungalows, each suitable for 1 or 2 individuals. With these properties, we are continuing our move to provide even more personalised home environments for those people we support.
Shortly, we will begin refurbishing these two properties around the needs of the individuals moving in. It is our plan to have them both open by April 2016 – sooner if possible! And Marika 3 is getting close to its finish as well. This 1 person unit in the grounds of Marika has been specifically designed around the needs of one individual who is looking forward to spending Christmas in their own, new home.
With these new units, come all of the other activities within the Company, as we grow to support another four people. So, the HR team and Care Management Team are working together to recruit and train more co-workers, both support workers and unit leaders, making sure that we have yet more great co-workers across the organisation, both in Romsey and Basingstoke – check out our recruitment pages for more information over the next few months.
Our ever-diligent maintenance team will have yet more locations in which to provide support to make sure that the environments are working as they should. Experienced managers are working together to manage new referrals, conduct in-depth assessments, and develop clear proposals and possible transition plans. Please contact us if you would like to find out more about any vacancies across the organisation.
We are looking forward to a great 2016 within Liaise – and have another few projects in the pipeline that we hope to share with you next year!
