At Alsop House we provide respite and rehabilitative care for adults with physical disabilities.
It is a purpose built unit in Tipton for up to six people. Its is fully wheelchair accessible, all rooms are single with on-suite facilities, these of which have remote controlled H-hoists so that even the most severely disabled people can manage their own personal care needs. The unit also benefits from the provision of wheelchair accessible transport which facilitates the day care and social activity programmes.
As a short-term care unit Alsop House aims to compliment peoples existing lifestyle and where possible we make arrangements for them to attend their normal employment, family and leisure activities. The units objective is to maintain and develop peoples independence during their stay.
Care is provided by a small staff team of highly motivated and well-qualified staff. Although the staff work to a clearly defined care plan they are also keen to work with individual service user on a daily basis to address their needs and desires.
Service users either as individuals or collectively devise the weekly activity programme, menu and personal care schedule. The opportunities provided by the unit are too numerous to list and so we would recommend that anyone considering a short break should contact the unit manger to discuss options and/or arrange a visit.
