Radis Community Care is reinforcing its commitment to dementia care as it becomes the new care provider at Diamond Court extra care scheme in Weston-super-Mare.
Celebrating over 20 years of high quality care in the community, Radis will now be supporting Housing 21’s residents to live independently in the purpose-built scheme.
The extra care service went live recently and provides at-home care for residents in their own homes.
Paula Hoggarth, group operations director at Radis, said: “Extra care is a brilliant support service for those who either need a little bit of extra help at home but don’t need full-time care, or for those who are preparing for the care they might need later on in life.
“Living in an extra care residence like Diamond Court means you have your own front door, and 24/7 support services are available to you on site, should you need them. It’s this independent living for the over 55s that we are so excited to be delivering in Weston-super-Mare.”
Diamond Court is Radis’s second extra care service in North Somerset, after Strawberry Gardens in Yatton which is also a Housing 21 property.
Paula said: “It’s great to be working with Housing 21 so that together we can ensure that the residents of Weston-super-Mare can live independently with choice and control over their care and support.
“We hand-pick our care teams and only select those who show a truly kind and caring nature, dedicated to helping people lead happy and independent lives with the right level of care or support.”
Dawn Gill is housing manager at Diamond Court, she said: “Everyone welcomes the new ways of working that a new care provider can bring, and Radis is a proactive company which is focused on growth but ensures its main goal is always to support the people who use its services.
“At Diamond Court we want to help people to maintain their independence and give them choice over their own lives – their finances, social lives and privacy. Living here is like being part of a little community under the same roof. You can choose to be around people when you want to, or choose to be in the privacy of your own home behind your own front door.”
Diamond Court has spacious one bed and two bed apartments and Radis will provide a tailored service to the residents living there, depending on their needs.
Radis works collaboratively with Housing 21, and other partners within Diamond Court to offer a variety of facilities on-site including a cafe, shop, hairdressing salon and library.
