SHCA is delighted to be working in partnership with Gentoo to deliver high quality care and support services within Cherry Tree Gardens. The £6.4m scheme, located in Houghton-le-Spring offers accommodation to people over 55 years of age with a wide range of needs.
Cherry Tree Gardens is a vibrant community hub, providing independent living within a community based setting to tenants of the 40 apartments and surrounding bungalows. Furthermore, the partnership with Sunderland City Council to provide reablement accommodation from four of the apartments, has huge benefits to individuals, the local hospital discharge planning teams and commissioners, whilst achieving much needed efficiency savings.
Sunderland Home Care ensures the provision of a 24 hour care service, 7 days a week, at Cherry Tree Gardens. We deliver services that are tailored to the individuals' needs and aspirations and, in conjunction with the service user, a care plan is carefully produced and monitored on a regular bases. Support ranges from small things that count, such as making sure the heating is on, medication has been taken; spectacles are to hand, safe and well checks to full personal care.
