Case Study 1

Ellen Mhor is a Residential Care Home with Nursing for adults living with a learning disability

Based in a suburban area of Dundee, Ellen Mhor supports up to 12 adults who are living with a learning disability and complex needs, and who may have an autistic spectrum condition. The team also supports those who have complex behaviours and associated mental or physical health needs.

Ellen Mhor is a large detached house with its own private garden situated in a quiet residential area of Dundee. Everyone at Ellen Mhor has their own en-suite bedroom and they are encouraged and supported to personalise their rooms. There is a choice of three living areas that people can choose from and a bright and airy dining room. There is a life skills kitchen and lounge area where people are supported in a small group to develop and maintain independent living skills such as menu planning and preparing their own drinks, snacks and meals. Externally there is a patio and seating areas for service users and their visitors to enjoy.

In Dundee there are many activities for people to access, including leisure centres, cinema, theatre, markets, shops and cafes. Ellen Mhor has a dedicated Activity Coordinator who supports service users to have individual activity plans, which are created based on each person’s likes and hobbies. Their goal is to enable people to structure their time, build relationships and establish a balance between therapy, self-care, work and leisure, as appropriate to their individual needs.

People come to Ellen Mhor for different reasons; they may require more support than can be provided in a supported living setting, or they may be moving along their care pathway from a hospital placement. Whatever the reason, Ellen Mhor can offer specialist input based on individual need to deliver flexible and effective support.

2. Appreciative Inquiry Methodology
3. Therapeutic Outcomes
4. Healthy Lifestyles

We believe that we must be fully accountable to the people we support, their families and to those who commission services on their behalf. Personal PATHS model of care is our unique way of supporting this.
