Kavanagh Place has a reputation for providing high-quality care for individuals living with varying complex health needs. A welcoming, modern and person-centred home, Kavanagh Place aims to make every day better for its service users.
The team within the 40-bed home build care and activity plans around service users, centred around their needs. Working with families, professionals and service users themselves, achievable goals can be identified.
Service users live in four 10-bed units, each having been developed to support specific conditions and include a dining room, snack kitchen and two lounges. Bedrooms can be decorated to personal tastes and each room has an accessible en-suite wet room and are fitted with TV and telephone points.
In-house clinics are held on a regular basis, with NHS specialist neurological nurses. Hosting such clinics are an excellent way to prevent disruption to a service users routine, and provide expert consultations in a familiar environment.
Kavanagh Place also has a full time physiotherapist and physiotherapy assistant, who work with service users to increase their independence and achieve their rehabilitation goals.
A healthy, balanced way of life is actively encouraged within the home. Activity staff work with one another, and service users, to create meaningful group and individual plans.
Access to education and volunteering efforts are facilitated, where possible, for those who wish to develop their skills further. Regular forums allow service users, staff, friends and family to suggest ideas for future activities and their views. Outings to nearby Stanley Park, the theatre and community functions such as the Dementia Choir are a regular occurrence. Access to a private minibus ensures transport is always available.

For each review the Care Home / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Care Home receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

Visited my Aunty today and I'm really happy after my visit, she seemed well looked after and happy and the staff couldn't have been nicer, everywhere was nice and clean and fresh. I am very impressed and feel at ease that she is being cared for to a very high standard.
