Opening of new ‘Changing Places’ a Boost to Disability Travel in NI

Our new State-of-the-Art ‘Changing Places’ facility for people with severe mobility disabilities opens in Ebrington Square, Derry/Londonderry at 11.30am this morning – Monday 7th August.

The bathroom facility was developed and funded fully by social care agency, Glen Caring, and is the first one in the Western Region. It is expected to be a major advantage for local people with disabilities and a boost to accessible tourism for the region.

“From our own experience of taking clients on respite care daytrips, standard disabled toilets are simply not enough for those with severe mobility issues,” says Glen Caring general manager Linda Beckett. “This new facility enables them and their carers to enjoy trips to and days out in Derry and the surrounding areas, with the security of knowing that their needs can be met with dignity.”

Local man, Jonathan Hagon – who cut the ribbon for the official opening –  says the new changing facility is “exactly what this city needs. It is so handy for both people in town and people in the Waterside, going to the arena or St Columb’s park. It means someone who normally couldn’t go on an outing with their friends and family can now do so. Having the use of the hoist and changing bed is brilliant – this makes life easier for so many people.”

“We have been in the situation in the past where, my mum and her friend have had to lay my friend on cold tiles on the floor of a toilet to be changed, which was awful for my friend. I can’t wait to tell them about the new Glen Caring facility on the square.”

Linda Beckett, General Manager of Glen Caring, Jonathan Hagon, service user, Orla McCann, Disability Action NI and the Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Councillor Maolíosa McHugh celebrate the opening of the new Glen Caring State-of-the-Art ‘Changing Places’ facility in Ebrington Square, Derry/Londonderry.

The event was also addressed by the Mayor of Derry & Strabane Maolíosa McHugh, who said he was “delighted that such a superb facility is now available to the people of Derry and Strabane and to visitors to our city and region.  This opening is an important step in making our city more inclusive and accessible, and should be recognised and welcomed as such”.

Martin Graham, Tourism NI Regional Manager for the Derry & Strabane council area welcomed the new state of the art facilities “I commend the work of Glen Caring and their focus on accessible tourism, the implementation of this facility will help ensure that all visitors can travel to the area with ease and comfort.”

Orla McCann, an assistant director at Disability Action NI, says better access is not just the right thing to do for individuals with disability, it’s also the right direction for tourism. Speaking at the official opening event, she said there are “an estimated 11 million people in the UK with some form of disability – a demographic that’s been overlooked for far too long.  In economic terms, this demographic is worth a potential £2 billion-a-year to the UK tourism market. By taking an inclusive approach to future tourism development, Northern Ireland could take its share of this market.”

The equipment available at the Ebrington Changing Places facility includes:

  • A height adjustable adult sized changing bench
  • A tracking Hoist system
  • Adequate space in changing area for up to two people
  • A centrally placed Aqua 800 washing, drier toilet with adequate room either side
  • A curtain to allow privacy
  • Non-slip flooring
  • Shower with floor drainage.

Respite day out at Country comes to City

Our respite day out took a distinct country flavor by taking part in a recent event in Ebrington Square, in Derry. Eleven of our clients, accompanied by six of our carers, mosied on down to the Country comes to City concert – which is now in its fourth year.

We took lots of pictures so you could see what you were missing…

Glen Caring Respite day out at Country comes to City1

We’d like to say a big Thank You to our carers, who made sure everyone was having a great time. They were Luisa Carlin, Albert McWilliams, Linda McWilliams, Roisin McNamee, Mandy Robinson, Francine McKeegan and Christine Wilson.

Glen Caring respite days out are about making sure that those in our care get out and about and enjoy themselves. However, like the full range of our Respite Services, they are also intended to offer a break to those family members who are providing care at home.

Days out – like Country comes to City – are organised for clients under our physical disability respite scheme. This scheme is available to those with physical disability needs between the ages of 18-65. The scheme offers a range of opportunities for services users including:

  • respite in their own home
  • social outings
  • short breaks away
  • group events

Some of our successful weekend breaks included trips to Strangford-Bay-Lodge, Portstewart and Linsnaskea Share Centre.

Our sitting services and overnight packages are designed to offer support and reassurance for you and your loved ones. This package allows for all aspects of care to be incorporated into your daily routine, again this longer provision package can be filled with any of the following tasks:

Choosing a Care Provider

What can you do if your current Care Provider is not meeting your needs? Call Glen Caring today…

Very often service users and their family who are already receiving support and care are not fully satisfied with the service they receive. This is mainly because their needs are not being met.

Where a Care Provider might fail you

Problems with the care you are receiving can be caused by  a range of factors:

  • lack of continuity,
  • not receiving care at the times you need,
  • feeling rushed or
  • lack of experience and expertise

What’s different about Glen Caring as a Care Provider?

At Glen Caring we value your right to receive care the way you want, with a care package that is built around your life rather than being imposed on your life. So why not choose a personalised option which is customised to your individual needs. We have a whole range of bespoke care packages, designed by you and for you.

Choosing Glen Caring as your agency will guarantee you a high standard of experienced care delivered exactly the way you want.

At Glen Caring Services we will assist you in picking the care you are happy with. The options are endless and we work to suit you. Our options include:

  • Health & Wellbeing – attending the gym, exercise classes, yoga, walking, gardening, etc.
  • Care at Home- support with any daily living tasks you require, household duties, personal care, toileting needs, meal preparation, medication, overnight care etc.
  • Holistic and Cultural options– attending exhibitions, libraries, galleries, art classes, religious services etc.
  • Breaks and Respite – trips away, cinema, concerts, in house respite etc.

This is just a small sample of the available services we have, which include self-directed care, private home care, specialist care and respite & sitting services.

It is important to note that our bespoke packages are tailored specifically to you and what you believe a care package should be. Choosing Glen Caring to deliver this promise will mean access to an excellent quality service, with highly trained experienced staff competent in working with highly complex needs.
