We have a ‘key worker’ system in place at Broadland House where one member of staff will be responsible for any special extra care that the client may need. She can liaise with family & friends, she can assist if a client needs any extras i.e. toiletries, clothes, sweets etc.
We can also arrange for an advocate to come in if required.
