How to Make a Referral
Referrals can be made by a number of routes, through relatives, social workers, GPs, community nurses or organisations.
As part of the admissions process an assessment of needs is completed. This will include a visit to the site. The admission process has three parts to it. Assessment, Induction and Review.
This is done in order for us to know more about each individual and whether we can meet need. The assessment will include:
Personal Care, Health and Safety, Communication Needs, Individual Choices and Rights, Medical Background, Social and Leisure Interests, Behaviour
We do this to in order to make sure that everyone is compatible as a community, and wishes and opinions are heard.
There is an opportunity for each individual to visit the site and experience the offer via a free taster session after which we will gather thoughts and feedback.
If placement is agreed via the assessment process, the participant will move to Part Two of the admission process, Induction.
The intention of the induction is to ensure that each participant becomes familiar with the RISE programme and the role of key staff members, this includes information on health and safety, safeguarding, ground rules, what you need to do in case of a fire or emergency, etc.
The induction will also be an opportunity to build individual timetables and to review the Participant Induction Pack and Participant Agreement.
For the first 6 months, each participant will have a monthly one to one planning meeting with their team leader, this provides participants with the opportunity to review and reflect their successes and areas to further develop. It also provides the opportunity to review timetables, targets and personal plans.
