Miss Catherine Loring is the Registered Manager.
Catherine is the Registered Manager at Victoria Court. She has been working for CTS since August 2018. She has over 16 years experience working in the health and social care sector, supporting individuals affected by learning disabilities, mental health needs and those with complex health needs. She strongly believes that all individuals receiving a support or care service should be at the centre of their care, with their needs and wishes at the heart of the service they receive. In conjunction with this she considers it imperative that those providing the care are fully supported, trained and included as part of a multidisciplinary team to achieve the best outcomes possible.
Catherine has successfully completed her NVQ Level 3 in Health and Social Care and is currently working towards a Level 5 qualification in Leadership and Management and will be starting the BTEC in Positive Behaviour Support.
Victoria Court provides a robust community residential placement for people with intellectual/learning disability and autism. It is a small home with the ability to provide independent living accommodation within a communal setting (rooms with their own laundry facilities and kitchen).
The home is registered with the CQC (Care Quality Commission) to provide care and accommodation for 6 men or women . The age range is 18-65 years old and it offers positive behavioural support for people with Intellectual/Learning Disabilities who may also have Mental Health needs and behaviours of concern. The care provided is based on a positive behavioural support model which is delivered within the least restrictive practice.
There are a number of shared living areas and inside the home the wide corridors and high ceilings provide a sense of light and space
The ground floor is extremely spacious offering a large lounge with 42” TV with Sky, visitors/quiet lounge, large dining/games room and kitchen. Outside there is a pleasant garden and patio area that overlooks Weston seafront. This can be used for reflection or as a source of communal enjoyment for the people who use the service.
All rooms are furnished to individual tastes, have en-suite facilities and are fitted with smoke detectors and television points.
On the ground floor there is one large double bedroom with access to a private bathroom, this would suit individuals who also had mobility problems. There is also a sensory suite.
There is a wide staircase leading to a further 5 bedrooms, all of which are en-suite. All rooms are spacious and light, three of the bedrooms have a fitted kitchen which helps promote privacy and independence.
In my opinion as a professional visiting the service, I would like to say Chris appears to be a great asset to Vic Crt and CTS. I have really appreciated his input during the interim manager’s appointment
