Terms and Conditions:
STARS Day Centre makes every effort to be as inclusive as possible, however, there are certain limitations on our ability to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all. Each person will be assessed on an individual basis to ascertain whether STARS can offer an appropriate environment for the individual to flourish and relax; some limitations could include:
Those with complex needs that may require:
Medical support or nursing input e.g. administering controlled drugs
Unstable epilepsy e.g. frequent severe seizures
Behavioural or emotional issues that mean coping in a social and possibly noisy environment is not possible or may put others at risk.
In order to ensure the health and safety of all centre users we have developed the following protocol:
1. It is expected that people attending the day centre will have the ability to interact and cope with a social environment; our activities may bring them into close contact with others and will mean that at times, the room is noisy and fairly chaotic. Support to participate in activities will be given, but extensive 1-2-1 attention cannot be guaranteed.
2. We accept people with all levels of dementia, from mild to severe. Behaviour as a result of Dementia is more important than cognitive ability.
3. We accept all levels of Dementia and those with Learning/Physical Disabilities, however, we do not have the facilities to administer 'controlled drugs' (please see the following link for further information: https://www.cqc.org.uk/guidance-providers/adult-social-care/controlled-drugs-care-homes) or offer hoisting at this time. Please feel free to discuss personal needs/medication/medical conditions with us when you visit.
4. Some people may feel the need to wander throughout the day. We do not restrain them to prevent this, although we may encourage them to rest if it starts to affect their health and safety or the health and safety of others. We also lock the door at all times during the day, so as to keep individuals safe and nobody will be allowed to leave until a carer/transport arrives for them.
5. STARS Day Centre will help people with basic personal care such as getting to the toilet. Urinary incontinence is not a barrier in itself, provided it can be managed adequately (the person is not constantly wet or requires constant attention re. toileting).
6. Incontinence products used by the individual must be provided by the person/family for use while at STARS. Those who have incontinence problems are advised to bring an alternative set of clothing in case of accidents. These clothes can be left at STARS.
7. While physical disability is not necessarily a barrier to attendance at STARS, this will have to be assessed on a case-by-case basis to ensure the individual can be cared for safely (please see above in regards to hoisting). STARS reserves the right to decline the offer of a place in cases where the physical disability is not manageable by STARS.
8. As stated above, STARS is an open, social environment therefore any aggressive, angry or confrontational behaviour is inappropriate. STARS reserves the right to decline a place at the day centre for any individual whose behaviour causes a risk to their own health and safety, or to the health and safety of other users of the centre.
9. In cases where a client of the day centre begins to exhibit aggressive, confrontational or anti-social behaviour as a consequence of the development of their condition, STARS reserves the right to withdraw the offer of a place in order to ensure the health and safety of the individual and other users of the centre.
10. As care needs change, individuals who may require higher levels of one-to-one attention, may be quoted separately for daycare.
