Welcome from Isle of Wight Council Welcome to the 2013/14 Isle of Wight Care Services Directory which provides information on a range of social care services for adults which are available across the Island. In line with the national agenda to ‘personalise’ social care services and make sure people have choice and control over their care and support, the Isle of Wight Council is working with partners and other organisations to improve the way care services are delivered. Part of this work includes the implementation of Self - Directed Support which began in April 2010. This way of working will help people who are eligible for social care support to decide how best their needs are met. This may include using services detailed in this Directory, but could also include other services such as community and leisure activities. This Directory also includes information for people who do not have funding from the Isle of Wight Council, and those who choose to pay for their own social care services. It provides information about the support available to family carers and is a helpful guide for people working in social care. The Isle of Wight Council provides a range of services to carers, such as assessing their support needs, helping them to take a well deserved break

and helping them in emergencies when their care cover breaks down. So, whether you are someone looking for information about home care, specialist equipment to help keep people independent, or you are a family carer needing a break or emergency support, this Directory can help you make an informed decision. It explains what help you might need to manage your own safety, security and health and provides useful information to help you feel confident in your own home and make the most of living on the Isle of Wight. The Directory has been produced with you in mind. However, we know that there are many other organisations on the Island that can give you information and advice on how to live a full and happy life – far too many to mention – but we hope you find this Directory useful and interesting as a starting, and future reference, point. Ian Anderson, Director for Community Wellbeing & Social Care

Looking for care If you are beginning to find every day tasks more difficult or you have a disability, then you may need some additional support to help you. It might be easy to identify the care and support you need, or you may need some help to do this. You should speak with people who know you well to see what support they think you need – they may notice areas where you need help that you hadn’t thought about.

Once you’ve thought about the areas you need help with, there are lots of ways to find that support. You can use this Directory, look on the internet, speak to other people who have help and support or speak with organisations like People Matter IW. Sometimes, however, the care and support you need is more complex. This is when the Council may be able to help you. However, the Council will need to check whether you’re eligible for a service.

Eligibility The Council has to use the money it has to help people with the most need. It does this by using guidance called ‘eligibility criteria’. The Isle of Wight Council’s care managers use the criteria to make sure they treat everyone fairly and that people who meet the criteria for help


receive services. The Council’s eligibility criteria is based on the legal requirements set down in community care legislation. The Isle of Wight Council will provide services for people who fall within the ‘critical’ and ‘substantial’ categories of the criteria.

Helping you to Choose and Pay for care • 0800 38 92 077 Advice for older people

Eligibility continued ‘Critical’ care needs are when you cannot care for yourself because you are in immediate danger or you could cause harm to others. For example:

majority of personal care or domestic routines

• life is, or will be, threatened

• The majority of social support systems and relationships cannot or will not be sustained

• significant health problems have developed or will develop • there is, or will be, little or no choice and control over vital aspects of the immediate environment • serious abuse or neglect will occur • there is, or will be, an inability to carry out vital personal care or domestic routines • vital involvement in work, education or learning cannot or will not be sustained • vital social support systems and relationships cannot or will not be sustained • vital family and other social roles and responsibilities cannot or will not be undertaken. ‘Vital’ is described as ‘necessary’ to the person’s life, health and well-being. ‘Substantial’ care needs are described as: • There is, or will be, only partial choice and control over the immediate environment • Abuse or neglect has occurred or will occur • There is, or will be, an inability to carry out the

• Involvement in many aspects of work, education or learning cannot or will not be sustained

• The majority of family and other social roles and responsibilities cannot or will not be undertaken. Examples of the types of services the Isle of Wight Council will pay for include: • intensive support at home, like home care services • equipment to help you live as independently as possible at home, such as a housing adaptation, a community alarm or fall detector •

residential or nursing home care so that where possible you can regain your independence and confidence after a stay in hospital and return home, etc.

Before the Council decides whether they can provide you with support, they need to decide whether you are eligible for services. To do this, you will need to contact the Council’s First Response Team on 01983 814980. Please don’t worry if you are not eligible as the Council’s staff are able to put you in touch with other organisations that may be able to help.

Assessments The Isle of Wight Council’s aim is to help you live independently in your home for as long as possible. To help you achieve this and to decide whether you are eligible for services they will ask you questions about your circumstances and the things you need to keep your independence – this is called a ‘shared assessment’. For example they will talk to you about your: •

health – including mental health, physical disability, sensory impairments, for example your eyesight and hearing and mobility, such as how far you can walk, can you manage the stairs to get to bed, etc

• personal care or activities of daily living, home environment and where you live • social support and relationships including if you have someone who cares for you • involvement in work, education and learning

• well-being, abuse or neglect. If you have a carer they will also be offered an assessment of their needs. The Council often needs to take advice from health professionals. If you have other people involved in your care and support for example, your doctor, district nurse or occupational therapist, they will talk to them to get the fullest picture of your needs. You can choose to complete the shared assessment or the Council can complete it with you. Together we work out how much support you need. People who come under section 117 of the Mental Health Act 1983 will continue to be exempt from making a contribution to their support costs. This means that they do not have to pay for any of their mental health services.

Your support plan Once your completed questionnaire has been agreed and your care professional has told you the resources and money you have available to support you, you should make your support plan. You should be at the centre of developing your support plan, with the help, if you want and need

it, of people who know you well, people like family and friends, or your care manager. Your support plan will record what help you need, your desired outcomes and what difference it will make to your life. The Isle of Wight Council will give you a copy of your plan.

Self - Directed Support Self - Directed Support is about people being in control of the support they need to live the life they choose. You may have heard it being referred to as

‘personalisation’ or ‘personal budgets’. There are different ways to describe it, but whatever name’s given to it - it’s about giving people real power and control over their lives.

Personal budgets A personal budget is an amount of money the Council contributes towards your eligible care needs and is designed to help you take control over your life, so that you can meet your care needs and manage your own support. Personal budgets are designed for people who live in their own homes and cannot be used to pay for residential care. You can choose to spend your personal budget in one of two ways. You can choose to have a ‘direct payment personal budget’. If you choose a direct payment personal budget, the Council will give you the cash to organise your own support. Or, you can

choose to give the money back to the Council and ask them to continue to provide all your care, this is called a ‘managed account personal budget’ as no money actually changes hands. You don’t have to manage the direct payment personal budget on your own; you could ask a friend or relative to help you. There are also organisations that will manage the money for you and use it to buy the things you need. For more information about personal budgets please contact People Matter IW on 01983 241494.

Commissioning services You can make direct arrangements with service providers to buy their services, using either your own money or, if you meet eligibility - see page 4, with a contribution from the Council via a direct payment personal budget. Fees for these services vary. A provider will give you a detailed cost breakdown of charges before you start to receive any services. Please make sure you check this out

before making a decision. Alternatively, care support services can be commissioned in part or whole by the Council, if you meet the eligibility criteria for ‘substantial’ or ‘critical’ needs. The Council’s commissioning team works with home care and care home providers who have a contract with the Council to make sure services are flexible and responsive to a person’s situation.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) The Government has a system that checks and regulates adult social care services. Registration is at the centre of this system. All health and social care organisations have to register with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Organisations must show they are meeting essential standards of quality and safety across all the


activities and services they provide. The system will make sure that people can expect services to meet essential standards of quality and safety that respect their dignity and protect their rights. Inspection reports are available to view on their website. For further information, visit:

What support is available? Support and care in your own home If you need help to live independently in your own home, or you are finding it difficult to manage at home, family and friends may be able to help. Alternatively, you could consider using the services of a home care/support provider. Home care providers employ care assistants to provide help in people’s homes. Care assistants can provide help with personal care such as bathing, washing and dressing, and/

or meals. They are trained in personal care, moving and handling, food hygiene, and infection control. They must be checked with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), formerly known as the Criminal Record Bureau (CRB), and have had their references checked by their employers. If you require nursing care at home, some home care providers can provide this. Some people may also require assistance with other day to day needs.

Community Alarm and Telecare The Community Alarm and Telecare services are two options offered by Wightcare Services who provide high quality 24 hour emergency support to Island residents. The Community Alarm provides peace of mind for people who feel at risk in their own homes. It is a service that operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This service can then give you the freedom to live your life independently knowing that you can obtain assistance when you need it. The service is available to anyone who feels at risk in their own home because of their age, disability, isolation, illness or vulnerability. The Community Alarm works via a special alarm unit connected to the telephone line. The alarm unit has a built in button, which you press to obtain assistance, alternatively the alarm can be activated by a pendant which is worn around the neck or on a wrist band. The range of the pendant allows you to live normally in your home. Telecare is equipment that can detect falls, inactivity, smoke, flooding, gas or extreme temperatures in the home. Sensors, which are placed in the home, are triggered, and an alert is received either by trained operators at a 24 hour call centre, or directly by a relative or carer.

Telecare can allow users to remain independent and relatives and carers are reassured, safe in the knowledge that should an incident occur, they will know about it. Some devices can also help monitor particular health conditions and reduce the need for hospital admission. Telecare can help restore confidence for people who feel vulnerable in their own homes for a variety or reasons – that could be because of living alone, frailty or the need to summon help in an emergency. It could also be as a short-term measure during a period of convalescence. For more information about these services please call 01983 821105. Wightcare is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

‘Out of Hours’ The Isle of Wight Council operates an ‘Out of Hours’ service to deal with crises in people’s care or with any welfare emergency involving adults, children and families that occur outside normal office hours and Bank Holidays including Christmas and New Year. In the case of a major incident affecting

residents or visitors the ‘Out of Hours’ service will facilitate crisis support. To contact them in an emergency out of normal hours call 01983 821105.

Adapting your home Do you have mobility problems? Adaptations to your home may help you to get around more easily Your assessment will identify if you meet the criteria for an adaptation to your home or if there

are other ways to help meet your needs. If it is agreed that you need adaptations to your home a referral will be made to Occupational Therapy.

Equipment The Council and its partners help people to deal with everyday living more safely and independently. Occupational therapists and other specially trained staff can give you advice, assess your needs and those of your carer, if applicable. Depending on your individual circumstances, occupational therapists can recommend equipment that will help you to: • Use the lavatory, wash or bathe.

• Manage eating or drinking. • Do household chores like cooking or tidying up. • Get around the house or garden. For more information contact People Matter IW’s Independent Living Centre on 01983 241494 or the Occupational Therapy Department, St Mary’s Hospital on 01983 534520.

Dementia care If you are worried that your memory – or that of someone you know – is getting noticeably worse, or if memory loss is beginning to have a knockon effect on everyday life, it is worth sharing your worries and seeking advice. That’s because memory problems can sometimes be an early sign of a medical condition such as dementia. You should first have a chat with your GP, who will address your concerns or arrange for further investigation. You may be referred to a local memory monitoring service where a formal diagnosis can be made. Bear in mind that there are many reasons for memory loss apart from

dementia. However, the earlier you seek help the better as there may be support or treatment available that can help you. People Matter IW can provide information about services and support available for people with dementia and their families. This can include support such as home care, social activities, short respite breaks, assistive technology and equipment that will help you feel safe and remain independent at home, or residential and nursing care. For more information please contact People Matter IW on 01983 241494.

Leaving hospital The Council can provide a service to patients, their families or carers which may make discharge from hospital quicker and safer. Referrals are made by the wards to the Hospital Social Work Team for an assessment. Services may be provided as follows:

independently in your own home. • Residential services – usually on a temporary basis to help you regain your daily living skills and return home.

• Domiciliary care/Reablement – care and support at home to help you regain or maintain your independence. •


Occupational therapist – who assesses your ability to undertake daily tasks at home and gives advice on how you can maintain and improve your independence, they may also provide aids and adaptations to support you living Helping you to Choose and Pay for care • 0800 38 92 077 Advice for older people

Carers Caring for someone who is dependent on you can place extra demands on your day-to-day life, and you may need some more help around the home to enable you to cope. Most of the help available will be designed for the person you care for, but it should always help to take the strain off you a little too. Start from what you have decided you need and make the services on offer fit that need. Don’t just accept what is offered if it isn’t really what you need. Be aware that you may not be able to get everything you would like, but if you don’t ask, you don’t get. If you decide you need to have some changes made to your home to help you cope, you should contact an occupational therapist for advice first. It is also important to let others know you are a carer to ensure the person you care for will be properly supported and cared for in cases of an emergency. The Emergency Alert Card is a card that carers can

carry with them in case they have an accident or an emergency when away from home. They register their details with Wightcare giving details of what should be done to ensure the wellbeing of the person being cared for. No details appear on the card, just a registration number and the Wightcare telephone number. The service is completely free of charge and can provide great peace of mind. For more information contact Wightcare on 01983 821105.

Respite care Everyone needs to be able to take a break from time to time and, as a carer, you are no exception. Don’t feel guilty about wanting some time to yourself – you may want a few hours to relax and catch your breath, or you may want a weekend (or even longer) to get away without the person you care for. This is all very normal – if you don’t take some time off, you may find that your ability to cope with caring starts to decline. Your carer’s needs and preferences for the type and length of break you have can also be assessed along with your own. There are a number of options:

• Support in the home can be arranged so your carer can have a break. • Short stays in a residential placement might be the best option if you wish to go into a care home yourself for a week or two. • If you have sufficient funds you may wish to arrange home-based respite care where another carer moves into your home for a short period. For more information on services for carers contact the First Response Team on 01983 814980.

Residential care homes Inspecting care services All care services are required by law to register with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Organisations must show they are meeting new essential standards of quality and safety across all of the activities and services they provide. Homes are categorised by the type of care they

provide and are listed in this Directory, starting on page 19. The latest inspection reports for care homes and care homes with nursing on the Isle of Wight can be viewed on the CQC website,

Is a care home right for me? If you would like or need greater security and assistance with personal care such as bathing, feeding, dressing and help with moving, a care home may be the answer. The Isle of Wight Council will assess your care needs. The assessment will be

used to tell you about the care choices you have. You will be fully involved in planning your care needs. Please contact the First Response Team on 01983 814980.

Care homes with nursing If you think your needs are too great to be met in a care home that offers personal care only you may need a care home which offers nursing care. A care professional or a registered nurse will visit you to look at what care you will need. This visit might be in your own home, a hospital if you’ve been ill, or a residential care home. You will be fully involved in planning your care needs. If a care home providing nursing care is the best solution for you, the care professional will give you information to help you find a home which meets

your care needs. The cost of the nursing care part of your fees is paid by the NHS directly to the care home. It is important that you get your nursing care needs identified before you go into the care home with nursing. You may be entitled to ‘fully funded continuing health care’. This will be looked at during the assessment process. You may want a carer, family member or friend to be part of this. This Directory contains details of residential care homes and care homes with nursing on the Island starting on pages 19 and 22 respectively.

Paying for your care Whatever your circumstances, whether you receive care in your own home or residential care, the Isle of Wight Council will financially assess each person on an individual basis to determine whether they need to make a contribution towards the cost of their care. Some people may have a minimal amount to pay and some people may have to pay the full amount. To help you understand the financial aspects, the Isle of Wight Council has produced some fact sheets

which can be accessed on under Adult Finances or copies can be sent to you by calling 01983 823340.

NHS Nursing Care Contribution If you are a temporary or permanent resident who lives in a care home that provides nursing care you may be able to get the NHS Nursing Care


Contribution towards the cost. It is not meanstested and is currently £108.70 a week for the standard rate. This is paid directly to the home.

The best indication of a good home is that the residents appear happy and responsive.



It is important to note whether staff seem friendly and caring towards residents and whether they treat residents with respect.

• Are there rummage boxes around the home to stimulate residents?

• Do they have any training and experience in dementia care?


• Will the person with dementia have a member of staff particularly responsible for their care?

If the person with dementia needs (or is likely to need) equipment or adaptations you may want to check:

• Is there a member of staff you can talk to about your own worries about the person with dementia?

• There is adequate signage and cues for different parts of the home such as dining room and bathroom.

Manager/head of home

• The home’s policy about locking external doors.

A manager who is caring as well as efficient can make all the difference to a home.


• Does the manager have a knowledge of dementia and can they deal with difficulties that may arise in an understanding way?

You may want to find out whether the person with dementia can have a single room and whether:

• Is there a full assessment at home before a resident is admitted?

• Residents are encouraged to bring in some of their own furniture and possessions to increase familiarity.

Activities Residents should be stimulated without feeling stressed. • Are reminiscence activities available? • Are residents able to compile memory boxes? • Do staff compile life story books including photographs and mementoes?

Essential information Safeguarding vulnerable adults Who is a vulnerable adult? A vulnerable adult is someone who is not able to care for or protect themselves from harm and exploitation. It might be because of their age, mental or physical incapacity, sensory loss, or physical or learning disabilities. It might be someone who is usually able to manage but is unable to do so because of an accident or illness. All people should be able to live their lives free from fear and harm. Some may find it hard to get the help and support they need to stop the abuse.

What kinds of abuse are there? Abuse can: • be an act which goes against your human rights • be a single act or repeated acts • happen in any relationship • result in harm • take advantage of someone’s vulnerability There are six main types of abuse: • physical – for example, hitting, slapping, burning, pushing, restraining or giving too much medication or the wrong medication

• psychological – for example, shouting, swearing, frightening, blaming, ignoring or humiliating • financial – for example, the illegal or unauthorised use of a person’s property, money, pension book or other valuables • sexual – for example, forcing a person to take part in any sexual activity without consent • neglect – for example, where a person is deprived of food, heat, clothing, comfort or medication • discriminatory abuse, including racist, sexist and other forms of harassment. A vulnerable adult may also neglect themselves or deliberately harm themselves. It’s everyone’s responsibility to speak out. If you have heard or seen something that worries you, or if you think someone is being abused, please tell us about it. You can report your concerns by telephoning the Safeguarding Team on 01983 814980 or if you feel that the person is in immediate danger contact the police by telephoning 999.

People Matter IW is working towards enabling access to services which can help with independent living, health and wellbeing. This is by providing information about the organisations which offer help and support. People Matter IW welcomes any new members who define themselves as having support needs, or organisations that support people with support needs - including disabilities (temporary or

permanent), people with mental health concerns, carers and people in receipt of personal budgets, as well as those who self-fund their own support.

‘Making it Real’ ‘Making it Real’ sets out what people who use services and carers expect to see and experience if support services are truly personalised. It is a set of ‘progress markers’ - written by real people and families - that can help an organisation to check how well they are doing towards transforming adult social care. The aim of ‘Making it Real’ is for people to have more choice and control so they can live full and independent lives. The Isle of Wight Council has signed up to ‘Making it Real’ and in November 2012 held a workshop to

identify the top three priorities for those people on the Island who use services and their carers. People involved in the workshop represented multiple client groups as service users, carers and those who fund their own care and support. The Council has developed an action plan and are currently working to improve on the top three priorities. For more information please visit the ‘Making it Real’ website: uk/Browse/mir/

Why your views are important All organisations need to know how they are performing. They are happy to receive your feedback on their services whether they are compliments or complaints. Feel free to tell them what you think and your comments can be used constructively to improve the service. If you use a home care agency or move into a care home, you should feel able to complain about any aspect of your life which affects your happiness or comfort. This might be anything from the way you are treated by staff to the quality of the food you are served. You should also feel free to make comments and suggestions about possible improvements to your surroundings and the services provided. Making a complaint should not be made difficult for you and should not affect the standard of care that you receive whether in your own home or in a care home or care home with nursing. Care services are required under national essential standards of

quality and safety to have a simple and easy-to-use complaints procedure. If you are concerned about the care that you, a friend or a relative is receiving, it makes sense to speak to the manager of the service about your concerns before you take any further action. The problem may be resolved quite easily once they are made aware of it. However, if you need to make a formal complaint, you should initially contact the registered owners of the service. They have a duty to respond to any complaints made. If your complaint is about a breach of regulations, contact the Care Quality Commission at www.cqc. If the Council has arranged and funded care and support for you, another option is to speak with your social worker/care manager or the department’s designated complaints manager (call 01983 821000) or visit: council/publicServices/councilComplaints.aspx

Independent advice line This Directory’s free advice line, in association with FirstStop Advice, provides an independent advice and information service encompassing care, accommodation, funding and rights. A personalised report can be generated for customers providing details of all care homes or housing with care schemes that meet their criteria with supplementary information about choosing and funding. One call to the freephone number 0800 38 92 077 will enable the service to build a profile of exactly what type of care you’re looking for, while taking into account your personal needs and interests.

Choosing the right care home for Mum was made easier. • Nursing Care • Residential Care • Dementia Care • Respite Care

From the moment my mother and I first visited her Barchester home, we knew we had found somewhere pretty special. Elegant surroundings, delicious food and beautiful gardens were made even more appealing by the presence of like-minded residents with whom she can socialise and enjoy activities. For my part, knowing that she’s safe in the care of such a dedicated and compassionate team gives me great peace of mind. And for that I’m extremely grateful.

T hank you, Barchester! Why not call us or drop in for a chat over a cup of tea? Orchard House Care Centre 189 Fairlee Road, Newport, Isle of Wight, PO30 2EP Tel: 01983 623 324
