support worker and service user walking down a corridoor in Redford Court

Redford Court, part of the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT) in Toxteth, Liverpool is taking part in the Care Home Open day on 16/06/2017.

The idea behind the day is to encourage local people to visit care homes in their community and to work together to develop better relationships.

This important connection is something that Redford Court has nurtured since opening in 1981 and the centre is already acting as a community hub, including supporting service users to collect and distribute food and toiletries for the homeless in Liverpool city centre. This is something that Redford Court does every few months and it has created a bond between the city’s homeless and the people we support with acquired brain injury.

As part of the Care Home Open Day 2017, Redford Court is hosting an open day where visitors will be given a tour of the facilities and talks by the Clinical team. A buffet lunch will be provided. The event will be attended by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool and the High Sherriff of Merseyside

Michael Boardman, Service User and Family Liaison Officer at Redford Court, said: "This is a great way to show the excellent services on offer and the fantastic work that goes on at Redford Court. Some people still have misconceptions about centres that support and care for people, so we are keen to dispel any myths and for people to come and have a look around, meet our service users and our staff."
