We endeavour that your experience at El Marsh Care will be as rewarding, inspiring and encouraging as possible because we are dedicated to give independence, respect, dignity and choice in every part of day-to-day life.
Our passionate and committed staff team are trained and knowledgeable is delivering person-centred. Our staff value individuality and are devoted to spend quality time building a positive rapport with each resident, understanding individual’s likes and dislikes.
Activities make up the most important part of all our days and at EL Marsh we ensure a variety is offered which reflects the interests and capabilities of all the people we support. All our staff are experienced and trained to assist and support our residents in their daily activities with the expectation that as many staff as possible will get involved in activities on a group and an individual level. Staff work alongside the people they support to ensure the activity plan is designed to not only mentally and physically stimulate the people we support and care for but to enhance their life skills and feelings of purpose and self-worth.
We also work to keep up people’s links with family and with local communities; we are increasingly using local facilities within the community to support independence and life skills.
At El Marsh we acknowledge everyone has different interests and abilities, therefore a ‘meaningful activity’ will be different for each individual.
For some, gardening and going to the local gym could be the perfect way to spend a day while others may find equal enjoyment playing games or baking.
Our staff are trained to research meaningful activities using a person-centred approach which will stimulate, engage and gives purpose to each individual. At El Marsh our staff plan groups activities with our other residents, these range from Theme Parks to holidays abroad. Each resident is allocated as a key worker, and during key worker meetings meaningful activities will be discussed and planned.
The environment we live in has a significant impact on our happiness and well-being. Each EL Marsh home has a homely look and feels to ensure our residents live in warm and comfortable home.
All of our homes have outdoor spaces, they are kept well maintained for both relaxation, summer activities and BBQs.
We are proud of the Residential and Supported Living environments for the people we support. We are constantly looking to improve our existing buildings while also establishing new Developments. Our homes are designed to be spacious, with large bedrooms and multiple communal areas.
We know that family and friends are very important to the people we support. That’s why we always warmly welcome visitors and encourage them to take part in activities and home events.
