St Catherine's bungalows

/media/adults/library/top_stcaths.jpg

St Catherine’s consists of three purpose-built, open plan bungalows that are home to sixteen people with a range of learning, physical and sensory disabilities.

Each bungalow has its own distinct family feel and no two bungalows are the same. Residents each have their own, personalised bedroom with en-suite shower or bathroom and access to specialist equipment such as hoists and chairs designed to make life easier. Although meals are prepared by staff, the kitchens are accessible so residents can help if desired. Each bungalow also has a sensory room for residents to use when they wish to relax.

/media/adults/library/stcaths2.jpgOutside, each bungalow has its own large, wheelchair-accessible garden overlooking the beautiful North Warwickshire countryside. Residents can grow flowers or vegetables in accessible raised beds, can use sensory equipment or simply enjoy the fresh air.

Residents can also access specialised, adapted vehicles for trips out to the local area or when going on holiday.

St Catherine’s has built its reputation on caring for people with very complex care needs and this care is provided by a well-trained, highly experienced and dedicated staff team that supports residents with all their personal, medical and social needs. In turn, they are supported in their work by a number of other outside professionals including community and learning disability nurses, physiotherapists, and speech and language therapists. 

A growing number of volunteers support residents and staff by helping with gardening, driving residents to appointments, helping people access the community, or spending a few hours visiting people and talking with them. To find out more, visit the volunteer page

St Catherine’s offers residents:

  • Annual holidays and short breaks
  • Daytime and weekend social activities
  • Support with medical and hospital appointments
  • Day services
  • Community-based activities
  • A large private bedroom with en-suite facilities

Opened in 2002, St Catherine’s bungalows replaced the original service opened in 1986, which had been housed in two older buildings. We have been providing compassionate, person-centred care to disabled people ever since.

Our work is regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and the Local Authorities on whose behalf we provide services. Inspections take place every eighteen months to two years, focusing on whether our services are Safe, Effective, Caring, Responsive and Well Led.

St Catherine’s was inspected on 17 September 2018. The inspectors saw that people at St Catherine’s continued to receive a service that was ‘effective’ and ‘responsive’ to their needs. They found, however, that continued pressure on staffing levels meant the registered manager and assistant managers had to cover care shifts on occasion, which impacted on their managerial work. As a result of this there were some areas that needed improvement, resulting in the overall finding that St Catherine’s ‘requires improvement’. Father Hudson’s Care has taken immediate action to ensure most of these issues were put right within a month, with ongoing work to bring about continuous improvement. We are looking forward to the next inspection, when we hope to demonstrate that St Catherine’s is ‘good’ in every area. The full inspection report can be found on the CQC’s website. You can find out more about the CQC at www.cqc.org.uk.
