The homes are staffed 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

The Assessment

Hopscotch Care has a comprehensive admissions process to ensure the impact on the current young people resident in the home is assessed and the effect on the new resident of the relationships and individuals in the home is taken into account before a referral is accepted.

Placement authorities are requested to provide a comprehensive Placement Plan to enable the Registered Manager to complete the impact assessment and to ensure the young person receives the best care particularly in the first two weeks.

The Care Planning Process after admission

Hopscotch has comprehensive planning process for every young person which results in the production of the Hopscotch Care Plan combining all of the relevant information on the history of the young person to formulate the improvement strategy that is monitored throughout their stay at Hopscotch.
