Parent Compliments

“The standard of care at the home is wonderful and they are always happy to talk to me or see me. H loves coming home but is always happy to return.”

“I like that L’s home is small and homely, it is a family like setting as opposed to a large residential setting. It always appears to be a happy home when I visit on a weekly basis.”

“I have such complete confidence in Homes Caring for Autism’s ethos, training and professionalism in dealing with service users on the autistic spectrum. I feel able to approach the Home Manager on any subject regarding my daughter. Any queries or problems I may have are swiftly and efficiently dealt with.”

“The core team at Stafford Lodge are 100% committed to the care for the people in the home. Often, the core team go that extra mile to make sure M has enriching activities such as holidays and extended trips, which can also be educational to ensure that M’s life is happy and he continues to learn. You are all a ‘priceless’ team, it takes special carers to care for special people and I am so grateful for the life you give to M.”

“The company really get it right in all areas, I feel M is cared for as if he is ‘family’ and I am confident his needs are being met, plus he is developing in all areas as he is getting the correct/balanced care and support.”

“It is noticeable how well all of the staff have a friendly and caring rapport with D, and he regards them all as his friends and as trustworthy. We are very glad he is with Homes Caring for Autism at Holly Tree Cottage.”

ʺHi Matt

We just wanted to extend a massive thank you to you and all the staff involved in the planning and subsequent getting James to Kerrie’s wedding.

In particular I would like to thank Don and Ryan for their support of James during the day. He looked like he was enjoying himself and got a lot out of the day. It was great he could catch up with his family who I know in turn were delighted to see him again. Some of them hadn't seen him since he was a child.

He seemed to cope the whole day and wasn't bothered by the fact so many wanted to see him, he took it all in his stride.

Hopefully Don and Ryan enjoyed themselves despite giving up their Saturday to look after James.

Once again we were delighted he made it and I know it helped to make the day even more special for all, especially his sister Kerrie, that he was able to attend.

You all deserve as much praise and accolades that should come your way…Richard and Tania that's up to you!

Thanks again

Kind regards

Gary and Bernieʺ

A lovely message in our Christmas card from an individual's parents. ʺWe don't need an angel on our tree.... we have a host of them looking after S at Durlston Lodgeʺ

******************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

"I recently attended S’s Person Centred Review and had to write to you to express my absolute delight in the way her keyworkers had prepared her for this important meeting. As a result of their efforts, S was able to remain in the meeting for its duration and make her own contribution to the proceedings. I felt that they had empowered her to have her own “voice” regarding what is and is not working for her. 

It was apparent how she benefitted from their superb attention to detail, from S sending out invitations to the meeting, to making some cakes to share with everyone, deciding who would sit where during the proceedings and proudly showing us a comprehensive folder detailing her opinions on her life in XXX. She clearly felt a great deal of involvement in all aspects. 

I thought that the new format for this meeting was brilliant, providing us all with the opportunity to cross-reference opinions, targets and aspirations. 

No doubt the robust training you afford your staff is a factor in this successful meeting, but I think it is also the dedication and calibre of the people you employ which shines through. Thank you!"
