Darwin Place is undergoing a major overhaul in the communication department! We are very excited to share that we have been asked to be a pilot scheme for the local speech and language therapy team. This means we will have the knowledge and support of 3 speech and language therapists for the next 6 months who are going to train the staff and visit our home regularly to make sure that we are using all forms of communication with our service users. So far the staff have really enjoyed looking at intensive interaction & visual schedules. The response from our service users has been great and we cant wait to learn more so we can communicate better with everyone!

This year has been very challenging but hugely rewarding for myself and the staff at Darwin Place & Darwin Domiciliary. I have been really fortunate to win 2 awards based on our achievements at Darwin Place. The first award was through the Barchester Care Awards for the Diverse Services Champion. I felt really proud of this because I had been nominated by a colleague & peer who could see how we as a team were dealing with some really difficult issues in our home. The award ceremony itself was glorious and a huge deal was made of all the finalists. As a company it was great to see what others were achieving and hear the stories about what they were doing that was above & beyond the call of duty.
