Service users are encouraged to use the public areas however service user’s who choose to stay in their own rooms may do so. Smoking is not permitted within the home or within any of the public areas. If a service user wishes to smoke then a risk assessment will need to be carried out. Linden house will try to facilitate this requirement, but this will be down to the manager’s discretion.

Admission

Clients interested in coming to live at Linden House are encouraged to visit the home and sample the atmosphere and level of service on offer. We offer, and strongly recommend the use of our Informal day care service. We feel that it is a great way to break down the stigma and misconceptions of residential care home. It is also useful for anyone considering making the move into residential care, as much reassurance can be found from spending days at our home. This gives the client the opportunity to get to know the staff structure and to adjust to new people and new surroundings. A month’s trial period is always given before taking up permanent residency.

Termination

If for any reason Linden House is not a suitable placement and the client has been here for longer than a twenty-eight day period, then Linden House requires the statutory notice as within the contract.
