Northern Healthcare work closely in partnership with colleagues from across the adult health and social care sector to provide outstanding support to all of our residents. All of Northern Healthcare’s residents are supported to maintain tenancy agreements with an independent housing association and these partnerships are key to promoting independence and recovery in a place our residents are proud to call home.
Northern Healthcare’s Managing Director, Ashley Mancey-Johnson comments: “Our close partnerships allow us to provide the highest standard of care to our residents. Working together with our housing partners we ensure our services are safe, warm and welcoming, comfortable and homely.
“Collaboration with external partners allows all our teams and residents to come together and build new relationships. Recent examples include a Paint Pot Day held at Merchants House which was very productive and lots of fun, and Blue Square Housing, our Housing Association at Radcliffe House, provided supplies to help prepare the garden for Summer!”
Peter Aviston, Managing Director at Encircle Housing comments: “We are passionate about supporting our tenant’s wellbeing and making a difference to their lives. Tenants and staff from Northern Healthcare teamed up with us at our Paint Pot Day event at Merchants House, Bradford where together we decorated the hallway, stairs, and reception room. The games room looked fantastic with the new feature walls, and we provided some more board games for them to play. It was a brilliant day, and it was a real pleasure to meet and get to know our tenants.”
One of our Merchants House residents was very proud of the end result: “I really liked taking part in the painting day. Everywhere looks great, it’s so clean and fresh and makes a big difference.”
Team Leader Charlie added: “It was nice to meet people from Head Office and Encircle that I hadn’t met before. Both residents and external visitors have commented on how fresh the place looks!”
Residents enjoyed getting involved in the painting and the day was a great success.
Blue Square Housing, our housing partners at Radcliffe House have provided the team with some supplies to help get their garden ready for Summer! The team are planning to incorporate seed planting into Gardening Club and residents are excited to grow their own vegetables, before harvesting them and incorporating them into some yummy recipes!
Gardening offers many benefits for our mental health, including stress relief, and boosting confidence and self-esteem. Getting out in nature also has a positive impact on our mental health, read more here.
