The majority of us carry out our daily tasks, whatever they might be, automatically without a thought.  But imagine wakening in the morning and from then on every single thing you do; other than breathing and communicating, requiring at least one person plus equipment, to manage life for you. Otherwise you’d just literally lie there. This gives you some idea of what care staff do working in a disabled environment, which is why it requires a high staff ratio and why training is fundamental to enable the provision of a high standard of care.

Care not only encompasses the activities of daily living, it covers social interactions, holidays, work, maintaining safety and comfort, watching TV, phoning family and friends and managing a myriad of other activities.

JCH, with the essential support of our care team, provides Nursing and Residential, Day care, respite and bathing service. Disabilities include Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Epilepsy, Spinal Bifida, Strokes and Head injuries amongst others. For admission our age range is 18 – 65 years. Nine of our rooms are ensuite; the others share access to toilet and bathing facilities.  All rooms are single occupancy
