The way we work
At Coppice Care in West Sussex, we are committed to providing the highest quality residential care services for people with learning disabilities, autism, physical disabilities and acquired brain injuries.
As part of this commitment, we have created our purpose-built, fully wheelchair-accessible development at Burgess Hill, West Sussex, providing a safe, supportive setting for 16 service users.
Our approach includes encouraging service users to live as independently as possible, to organise their own daily routines and make informed decisions about their lives and the service in which they live. Respect for the decisions, choices and dignity of our service users is at the heart of what we do.
We work with each service user and stakeholders to agree a bespoke person-centred plan, setting out a package of care and support designed to enable positive personal development. This comprehensive care plan covers issues including:
- preferred daily routines
- likes, dislikes and interests
- holistic needs including: spiritual, social, physical, emotional, interpersonnel, cognitive and cultural needs
- communication needs and how we will meet these
- healthcare needs and provision, including medication and any specific therapies
- dietary requirements
- a risk assessment.
An important part of supporting our service users towards maximum independence is enabling social inclusion including access to education, work and volunteering opportunities, as well as hobbies, leisure and social activities, tailored to each individual’s wishes and needs.
Our complex is conveniently located to access these opportunities in the thriving community of Burgess Hill and the town also has excellent rail and road links for any travel necessary to further afield.
We are registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC), which requires us to meet essential standards of quality and safety. More detailed information about our services is available in our downloadable statement of purpose, which we are required to provide by the CQC.
