Strada Care completed months of planning in February 2018 to rebrand as a completely new separate service provider specialising in Supported Living from the Care Unlimited Group it has been a part of since inception in 2011, which now focusses on Residential and Nursing Care.
Strada Care will be repositioned to achieve ‘Enriched Supported Living’, with a stronger focus on the learning disabilities adults sector, including autism. Strada Care has reviewed how they work with the individual service users, with revised person-centred care planning to nurture and promote the development and potential of all of its service users as appropriate, responding to personal needs and ability. Revised key worker teams are being developed to allow support workers to participate more closely and focus more on all aspects of the needs and abilities of all service users in their care. This will lead to improved communication with relatives, advocates and health care professionals, as well as other linked stakeholders in the local community also leading to improved access of services.
In the latter part of 2018, we shall kickstart our new drive to grow our supported living services to new service users in partnership with Havenmore Housing and Reside Housing.
A brand new management structure has been implemented. Director Reza Shamtally now focusses day to day on leading Strada Care as a service provider, with Louise Walmsley our newly appointed CQC registered Service Manager overseeing all supported living services, supported by Deputy Manager Sue Johnson, leading 2 main group of services split across 5 houses in 4 locations across Surrey and Sutton. The new management structure is already offering us immediate improvements in overseeing all services users’ care across the 5 houses, greater two way communication in the hope of enhanced person-centred care delivery to our valued services users. The structure has also already shown closer day to day working between the director and support workers.
Later this year, Strada Care shall also be exploring innovation in the health and social care sector. With developments already being discussed, more news on this will be released in due course.
