Adelphi Care Services is planning on opening up the new six-bedroom facility in Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire later this year.

Bosses say it will be an important step in further improving provision for users who have challenging behaviours and complex needs.

Joe Kwaterski, business development director at Shrewsbury-based Adelphi, said: “We are really looking forward to opening up our latest residential home at Hanford later this year.

“We have been working hard to ensure everything is in place to provide a first class facility.

“We wanted to make sure that what we were offering in this new home was just right.”

The new residential home is now registered with the Care Quality Commission and Adelphi continues to prove it meets essential standards, including respecting users and safeguarding people.

Mr Kwaterski said: “We always strive to offer the best service that we can for our users. It is important that their needs are met.”

All rooms will have en-suite shower room, toilets and hand basins. The residents, who will come from the Stoke, South Staffordshire and Shropshire border areas, will have a choice of rooms to occupy during the day, including a conservatory.

Mr Kwaterski added: “We hope that we will soon be commissioned by the joint commissioning team, which includes Telford & Wrekin.

“Those living at the Stoke facility will be able to take advantage of a host of facilities in the area, including the nearby Trentham Gardens. It is an ideal location for us to open our latest residential home.”

Adelphi has a number of residential properties, as well as a respite centre, in Shropshire which are home to adults aged from 18 to 65 with Autism, Asperger’s, learning disabilities and challenging behaviour.

Senior staff from Adelphi were given more information about the service and answering questions at an event held by Staffordshire Adult Autistic Society earlier this month.

“We have 21 years of experience in providing a range of services for those on the Autism spectrum,” Mr Kwaterski said.

‘’This new service will be concentrating on refining our position even further by transforming all of our services from a generic provision of services to focus more specifically on Autism.

“To this end we have already registered our Autism Specific Respite Service with The National Autistic Society’s Accreditation Programme.

“This is essential for us and we believe that all our services will benefit from the improved knowledge and understanding that will be gained.

“We want our service-users to live their lives to the full in a safe environment. The developments we are making to enhance what we provide will benefit all our service-users.”
