iBC Residential Care Updates 

2023 has been a busy year already for the people we support in residential services across the Midlands. Our residential care facilities are specialist settings that are carefully designed to provide live-in support for individuals with additional needs. Providing care packages tailored to individual needs and assessments, our support focuses on engagement, inclusion and iBC are committed to enhancing people’s lives. 

Tarry Hill – High Peak 

The residents of Tarry Hill enjoyed a Valentine’s Party last week! The people we support took part in a cake baking competition, music and a celebration of all things LOVE.  

New resident P, joined the service this month and won the cake competition! Staff of Tarry Hill said that this really helped P come out of his shell as the activities of the day encouraged him to socialise with peers and participate fully in celebrations. 

Within this service, residents can explore their independence and enhance their everyday living skills whilst residing in a safe, functional, and socially inclusive environment. We take great care in getting to know those we work with, ensuring they are paired with people with similar likes, interests, and an overall positive compatibility. 

The Dovecote – Mansfield 

The Dovecote is a beautiful and serene care home in the heart of Pleasely in Mansfield. Every month, support staff are recognised by their dedication to those we support; this month Kirsty James was nominated by the team as Employee of The Month. Staff said that Kirsty always goes above and beyond to help others and this is reflected in her recent promotion to Senior Support Worker. 

Resident, PL won an outstanding achievement certificate for his substantial effort in his NVQ with the Academy Transformation Trust of Further Education. Well done P! 

Orchard Court – Leicester 

Orchard Court provides 20 specialist residential placements for individuals with varying degrees of learning disability and/or PMLD.  

This month MP was supported in the community to carry out some shopping to revamp her bedroom. This was followed by a well-deserved coffee and slice of cake. 

RC was supported with a walk to the local shop where he chose to buy a magazine and some snacks to enjoy in the park. RC was prompted by staff to complete his shopping, promoting his independence within the community.  

Everything we do is based on enabling opportunity and empowerment in a community setting. Our expert support services focus on nurturing little incremental wins (always aligned to realistic goals) that result in rewarding experiences all round. 

Lester Hall Apartments – Leicester 

Lester Hall Apartments is a specialist residential home for individuals with a primary diagnosis of mental health and associated complex needs. Staff are committed to enabling and empowering individuals, by setting realistic goals that constantly encourage small steps forward – and result in big personal achievements. 

Resident JJ, expressed his wishes to go fishing – so a trip to the seaside was planned. Staff supported J to set up his equipment and successfully catch some fish, crab and overall had a brilliant day! 

GM went with staff, to the Royal Air Force Museum! The Royal Air Force Museum offers a fun, entertaining day out for all in Cosford, West Midlands. Staff report that G thoroughly enjoyed his day out and it was great to see all the Museum currently has on display. 

At IBC, our ethos is to deliver a high quality of care and to think differently – to offer different opportunities that result in different outcomes. Everything we do is designed to help the individuals we support to succeed and thrive, so they can enjoy everyday life and the freedom and rewards of living in a community environment.
