Glendon Helps With Fire Alarm Testing To Affirm Commitment To Person Centered Care

22 May 2024 | Category: News

One of our houses has gained a brand-new Fire Marshall after a Resident had spoken of his dream of taking on the role last year.

Glendon, who was part of Residents Workshops when we discussed the I/We Statements with them last year and earlier in 2024, had said how much he enjoyed helping at the weekly Fire Alarm Testing, now he has been doing the job with staff each week.

When we spoke to him last week after his latest test, he said “I like to help. I like being Fire Marshall, I put my jacket on and the alarm makes a noise. It’s very loud but everyone is safe!”

Glendon – who also loves DJ-ing and has performed that role at various Trust events including the Christmas Dinner Dance– said he now wanted to do it at Head Office, “I’d like to help there too.” he smiled.

The I/We Statements were put together by residents and will form the bedrock of the standards of care provided by the Trust as we move forward.

Under  the CQC’s new framework, residents are encouraged to provide personal statements and views on all aspects of their care, including everything from their living conditions, medication, activities, and work placements.

This Person-Centered approach to care has always been at the heart of what we do. The aim of Lisieux Trust is always to have a collaborative environment where residents feel heard, valued, and are actively involved in the way the organisation operates.
