Further Details

Oak Farm Clinic, which is part of Choice Care 2000 limited, is a 31-bedded unit situated in Taverham on the A1067 Norwich to Falkenham Road. It is approximately five miles from Norwich City center and is therefore within easy reach of all amenities.

It is registered as a Care Home (with Nursing) for Younger Adults with Physical Disabilities with the Commission for Social Care Inspection. A copy of the last inspection report is available on request.

The unit provides a comprehensive service to clients recovering from acquired brain injury and neurological disorders. The philosophy of care is through a structured programme of rehabilitation to, where appropriate, long term support or planned discharge. Our approach to care also embraces the social, psychological and recreational needs of the service users, and these are integrated into the care plan.

The care provided is flexible and the care package is needs-led, to ensure a structured and effective rehabilitation. The care is delivered through a multi-disciplinary team, comprising of registered nurses, medical practitioner, rehabilitation assistants, occupational therapist, physiotherapist, speech and language therapist, psychologist and consultant neurologist.

The staff who work permanently on the unit are suitably qualified and are well supported by a rolling in-house programme and National Vocational Qualification training, along with regular supervision. Specialist in the area of neurology and acquired brain injury, from outside the unit, are also regularly invited to participate in the staff training programmes.

Each service user has a care plan, and these are reviewed monthly, in consultation with all significant others. Every service user and their close relatives play a significant role during during these reviews. The promotion of Social and Activities for Daily Living Skills are the key priorities within the rehabilitation programme. Every service user is also actively encouraged to participate in a range of activities organised jointly with the staff.

The evolving care and service provision is underpinned by regular feedback from service users, their relatives and the staff. Meetings are held quarterly with stakeholders, which comprise of representatives from local Primary Care NHS Trust, the Local Authority, and the Service Users' Group

The Unit is committed to partnership working with agencies in the statutory and non-statutory organisations. We engage proactively with our stakeholders, to ensure that the care and the needs of our service users are never compromised.

We regard each of our service users as an individual, and through understanding their unique needs, personality and medical history, we strive to promote a programme of rehabilitation with health outcomes that enhance their quality of life. In addition, we consistently aim to maintain the dignity and self-respect of our service users, even in the face of challenging behaviours, which can be a feature of acquired brain injury.
