Care

P1020392.JPG

Care at St Elizabeth's College is provided by St Elizabeth's Domiciliary Care Agency. Learners either on site or at Windhill have supporting staff available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

At St Elizabeth's College we provide care of the highest standard at all times whilst ensuring that we continue to promote the independence of our young adults. Although always encouraging our young adults to fulfil their independent living skills, we also understands that for some this is not always possible and so we are able to provide care to those of high need.

St Elizabeth's College has access to a multi-disciplinary team made up of specialist epilepsy and learning disability nurses, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists and General Nurses.

Although this team can provide emergency intervention when necessary, all learners are registered to a local GP and referrals are made through the usual channels. The local GP attends clinics on site; learners at Windhill will access the community GP based in South Street, Bishops Stortford.

Staff are trained in the use of intervention medication, the administration of medication, epilepsy, first aid and safeguarding.

Staff that are part of the Domiciliary Care Team are called Residential Learning Support Assistants. This means that staff from the bungalows and Windhill will also support learners within the class setting at College. This creates an holistic approach to learning and means that targets being focused on either at College or on their residential setting can be transferred to each. This allows learners progression to be recorded at all times and creates opportunities for the most successful outcomes around their independence skills.
