Residential Care Home
– St Christopher’s House
St Christopher’s is a large semi detached house set in a quiet road within High Barnet. The home accommodates six residents. Service users are allowed to personalise their bedrooms with their own personal furniture and décor. The home is within a short walking distance to Barnet’s town centre, High Barnet tube station, the local leisure facilities and Barnet General Hospital. There is also a bus stop which runs regularly outside of the home.
The length of time that each individual takes to achieve full independence is dependent upon their individual needs and abilities. Clients at St Christopher’s House have an average length of stay of less than a year.
Small Group Homes
The group homes are designed for a maximum of three people sharing the lounge, kitchen/dinner with the privacy of their own bedrooms. There is a senior member of staff between 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday. The group homes are aimed for individuals who do not required 24-hour residential care but there is an identified need for less supportive accommodation before moving to the training flats.
Support into permanent accommodation
We provide short-term floating support to people moving into permanent accommodation. The support is designed to support people while familiarising and adapting to the new environment.
– Training Flats
Once residents have been assessed as capable of more independent living, they are offered the opportunity to live in one of these flats receiving regular visits from Platinum Healthcare support workers as they develop their independent living skills.
The length of time that each individual takes to achieve full independence is dependent upon their individual needs and abilities. Clients staying at the training flats have a variable length of stay, but the majority of clients move on to fully independent living within 2 years.
