Commited to care since 1994.

Silver Springs is a charming residential care home in the heart of Watford Town Centre. Set up in 1994, the home continues to provide quality residential care for adults with learning disabilities. The home has a Disabled Access Platform Lift, which makes the entire property wheelchair accessible. We offer support to adults with physical disabilities, epilepsy, autism and sensory impairments. The Home has 9 bedrooms in total. All service users have their own bedrooms and are encouraged to personalise their bedrooms to their taste.

The communal accommodation is spacious with ample facilities for all the residents. There is a large lounge where service users can unwind, relax and watch TV, DVD’s or play the Wii. We have a touch screen computer in this room which is has internet access for service users to use their email, YouTube or surf the net. Our kitchen/dining room is large enough to seat all of our service users and to take part in fun cooking sessions. We also have a conservatory/activities room, which overlooks our secure garden. The activities room and the garden offer service users with an alternative space to relax or engage in activities.

The home is ideally located in the town centre of Watford. The local market, high street, shopping centre, leisure centre, supermarket, theatre and park are all within walking distance of the home. We pride ourselves on our diversity and all religious needs are catered for here.

OUR SERVICES
icon Person Centred Support

Silver Springs provides 24-hour residential care to adults with learning disabilities. Our service is person centred and service user led. On admission to Silver Springs, service users are allocated a key worker who is responsible, under the supervision of the Manager, for agreeing a Support Plan and Personal File with the resident. These files include details of the service user’s preferences and dislikes, medication, general and healthcare support requirements and information on their lifestyle choices. The plans also include assessments of any possible risks to the service user and details of how these risks are being managed. Silver Springs is committed to the regular review of care plans.


icon Healthcare

Silver Springs is supported by Upton Road Surgery, which is located at the end of road. The home has an allocated GP who is able to visit if required. The Home uses Hinton’s Pharmacy to dispense medication and provide advice. They also complete an annual audit of medication procedures. There are several opticians and dentists in the town and staff are always happy to assist with making appointments for any of these services. There is also a Visiting Chiropodist Service which can be arranged if a need arises. We work with Hertfordshire Partnership who provide more specialist learning disability services such as Psychology, Counselling and Continence Support.


icon Personal Care

We offer support packages, which include support with all aspects of personal care including washing, shaving, oral health care, dressing, toileting, continence care, feeding, assistance with administration and safekeeping of medication and assistance with getting up or going to bed. Hairdresser visits can be arranged if required, however, we are more then happy to support service users to go to one of the many hairdressers in town.






icon Activities

The home offers a number of daytime interests both within and outside the house. We have an “Activities Organiser” who will support service users to design individual activities plans. In house we provide activities such as ball games, arts and crafts, photography, exercise sessions, music therapy, pampering sessions, sensory sessions, board games, puzzles, fun-cooking and gardening. We arrange various community access trips including going to the Cinema, Bowling, going out to eat, trips to the Park, short drives and shopping. We also arrange annual holidays for our residents.


icon Finacial Support

No financial transactions will be carried out by a Care Worker, unless it is part of the service users identified support needs. If there is a need, staff can offer support with managing benefits and pensions, personal shopping, deposits and withdrawals of money from the bank and other ad hoc admin tasks. Service Users are provided with a secure cash box in their bedrooms and their own cashbook to keep a record of spending and receipts. Staff can support them to maintain spending money and records if you require any assistance


icon Medication

We can provide assistance with medication where this has been identified as part of a care package. For this to happen, we can arrange for our Pharmacist to have medication dispensed into a Nomad Dispenser Pack so that medication can be stored and administered safely. We can also support to arrange for any repeat prescriptions. Service Users are supported to self medicate if this is part of their agreed assessment of needs. Our staff are all trained in Epilepsy and administration of Rectal Diazepam. Although we do not currently stock controlled drugs we have the facility to do so.


icon Dietry Needs

We offer a four week rolling menu to ensure a well balanced and varied meal plan. We cater for a range of diets including vegetarian, diabetic, low sugar and high fibre and cultural needs. Service user’s individual requests are catered for wherever possible. Drinks and fruits are available throughout the day. Service users are consulted about their preferences in keyworker sessions, resident’s meeting and on a daily basis.


icon Independent Living Skills

We strongly support service users obtaining and developing their Independent Living Skills at Silver Springs. We will asses and determine your level of needs upon admission and can support you with skills such as cooking, cleaning, shopping, transport, laundry, medication and continence care and technology and email.


icon Employment & Education

We offer practical support to service users including support with searching for job opportunities, support to complete CV’s, full in applications and attend interviews. We can also access support services from Hertfordshire County Council for Employment advice and help.
Similarly we can support you to access further education opportunities though Oaklands and West Herts College. We also work with a range of Day Services such as the Shepherd Centre, Waterside Centre and Watford Day Services.
