Many of the people who use our services come to us with behaviours that are both challenging and complex, very often as result of an injury or illness. We support individuals through a process of rehabilitation so that everyone at Innova can live a satisfying, hopeful and meaningful life, acknowledging the limitations of their learning disability or injuries.
We do all of this by:
- Creating an environment that enhances the process of rehabilitation and recovery
- Devising agreed care and support plans
- Comprehensive and regular assessments
- Regularly reviewing the effectiveness of care and support through planned care review meetings with the care team
- Providing care and support that is focused on reducing the severity and frequency of behaviours that challenge
- Providing personalised and exciting activities that focus on personal aspirations and enhances the life skills of our residents
We also value every individual, their history and their experiences and we offer opportunities to develop current skills and learn new skills. We promote optimistic thoughts and resilience through learning to cope.
We look at positive risk taking and value the relationship with family and friends and help to maintain the lifestyle the service user choses to live to promote ongoing independence.
Innova offers many nurturing and creative activities including making story books, music lessons, pet therapy, support with CVs and jobs, diet and meal planning, days out, sewing and crafts, drama fun, living and life skills, gardening and so much more.
We have our own Specialist Acquired Brain Injury Centre for Rehabilitation and Support. We also have our specialist autism-specific residential setting which accommodates people with needs across the autism spectrum. By giving support to people with acquired injuries to the brain and severe learning and physical disabilities, we aim to speed the process of recovery and improve possibilities for those under our care.
