Registered Home Manager: Paul Sharpe (application in process)

A warm welcome to Searsons Way, one of our residential homes located in Hornchurch.The service users that live here are supported by a dedicated team, who support and care for each individual along their care pathway. We work with each person in genuine ‘partnership’ working – consulting and engaging at each stage of their care programme with regular reviews in terms of targets achieved. We always welcome feedback on how we are performing as a residential home and we continually listen to the views of the people in our care, and their friends and families – it’s very much a team effort!
It’s a busy life at Searsons Way – during the week we access a number of different activities which include bocha, bowling, swimming and walks to the local parks. We are in the process of setting up further activities within the local area such as visits to the local café for tea and the local theatre.

We also work closely with partner agencies within the area: we have links with the local Havering College who support us in training our staff through the NVQ process and supporting us in recruiting for staff from their Health and Social Care division. We also have extremely good links with local YMCA and Hermitage Centre which includes a Specialist Epilepsy Nurse where we can access their services should these be required. Further, we are starting to build links with the Fairkytes Arts and Crafts Centre, to gain further contact and presence within the community.

As a Home-from-home service we encourage families to visit regularly or call as often as they wish to know about the care their relatives are receiving. During the year we invite family members to attend many activities and parties with us to celebrate significant occasions and festivals. We also try to make regular calls ourselves to the families if we have not heard from them to check on their wellbeing as well as giving an update on the individual in our care.

Staff: Searsons Way is managed by a Registered Home Manager, and has two support staff on shift at all times during the day. At nights we have one member of staff on a ‘waking night’ shift, with a ‘sleep-in’ available from our sister house next door (42 Fairkytes Avenue). This backed up by a full on-call system. There are also additional staff that come in at various times during the week to support each individual’s care programme and activities plan.


Searsons Way is a four bedroom home with two en-suites and a further two bathrooms.

Kitchen:

Our fully-equipped spacious kitchen has additional facilities for self-cooking. We welcome service users to prepare their own meals with or without support as needed.

Living/Dining Areas:

The comfortable living spaces are well-furnished, inviting and always well used! These are very sociable areas where people can relax and enjoy their surroundings. Our service users are encouraged to personalise their own bedrooms where they can create more ‘personal space’ away from the communal areas.

Activities room:

Activities room: Located to the rear of the house, an activities room is used for arts & crafts, and as an additional meeting area for staff and residents.

Garden:

We have a wonderful deck and seating area over looking the garden. This is a great socialisation space and is a real sun trap in the summer, our resident love this area. The garden can be accessed via steps or a wheelchair ramp.
