Gender: Mixed Age: 17+ Beds: 54 The Fields is a specialist residential service in Sheffield, South Yorkshire for adults with learning disabilities who may have behaviours that challenge as well as associated complex needs. We encourage and enable the individuals we support to lead a full and happy life. We work with them to ensure they have more choice and control in their lives. We find out their strengths, abilities and preferences so that the care provided can be as person-centred and meaningful to each individual as possible The Fields is split into seven different living areas, six of which are residential and one is a registered nursing service. Each unit has its own garden, lounge, kitchen and dining space as well as en-suite facilities. Central to all the units is a large open space called the sensory garden. This space is available for all residents and is a popular space for activities, parties, live shows and entertainers. The Fields is situated in Woodhouse in Sheffield, which is a vibrant residential area, with easy access to shops and local amenities. The Fields has access to its own fleet of transport, which is used to take residents to appointments and for home visits. The residents are also able to engage in community activities with some of the favourite being visiting the zoo, plane spotting at the airport, museums and trips to the seaside. “I feel The Field’s residents benefit greatly from the staff’s knowledge and skills, but also their proactive and person-centred approach which maximises quality of life.” Professional The two activity coordinators support individuals in creating their person-centred activity planners and developing daily living skills both inside the home and out in the community. We enable each individual to build upon their skills to achieve further independence and confidence, leading to a better quality of life. We have one residential service with nursing, however the nurses (RGN, RNLD & RMN) in this living unit oversee the other units providing additional support to the support team should someone become unwell. “Things that matter to me are taken into consideration when choosing what I am going to do” Resident On site we also have a Specialist Day Service that has numerous sensory rooms and a large hydrotherapy pool, for more information visit the Sheffield Day Services page.
