Case Study 1

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

Situated in Hexham, Northumberland, Oaklands supports people with learning disabilities and complex needs. The team also supports people who have additional mental or physical health needs, and complex behaviours.

Oaklands is a large detached property with extensive living areas. This means that people can choose if they want to be in the gender specific lounges, or in mixed company. Everyone at Oaklands has their own bedroom, which they are supported to decorate and personalise. There is a conservatory with access to a spacious and private garden, with seating and picnic areas. There is also a greenhouse and raised flower beds for people to practice their gardening skills. Oaklands boasts a sensory garden, which is accessible for all.

Oaklands is close to the historic market town of Hexham, which hosts a good choice of recreational and leisure facilities for people to access. These include a swimming pool, a library, parks and shops, as well as the beautiful surrounding countryside. To see a map of the surrounding community facilities, please click here.

Oaklands 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. People are supported to plan menus, shop and prepare food with support to increase their daily living skills in readiness for moving on.Oaklands Map Small

At Oaklands, our 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 may come to Oaklands for many reasons. They may be moving on from a hospital setting or may require a service which can support them more than a residential placement. It may be that they are leaving a residential or home setting and require a little support during a difficult period in their life, or they could be on a pathway to a place of their own.

Our Model of Care

Within Oaklands we follow the five key principles that form our model of care, Personal PATHS.

1. Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)
2. Appreciative Inquiry Methodology
3. Therapeutic Outcomes
4. Healthy Lifestyles
5. Safe Services

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.
