For season one of our brand-new Voyage Care Podcast, we focused on the theme of person-centred care. The episodes in this season show how person-centred care is embedded into everything we do. Each one of our speakers shared their knowledge of how person-centred care works in their areas, as well as some interesting stories and key learnings. All the episodes are now live and linked below for you to listen to!
For episode one, we heard from Jen and Christina, our Transition Managers in the South-West. They discussed what person-centred care means to them, and shared some of their favourite person-centred care stories.
For episode two, we heard from Raj, our Specialism Implementer, and Stacey, Service Manager at Redcliffe House. Redcliffe House is one of our NAS accredited, residential care homes that specialises in autism. They discussed the importance of understanding and accepting autism, all while delivering exceptional person-centred care.
In episode three, we spoke to Kelly, our SBSS Business Development Manager, and Dave, Head of Behavioural Support. Kelly and Dave recorded this episode in the context of the Winterbourne View anniversary. This year is the 10th anniversary of the BBC Panorama documentary that exposed abuse of people with learning disabilities and autism. The documentary prompted a Government investigation, which led to the creation of the Transforming Care for People with Learning Disabilities agenda.
