The Orchard Care Home
The Orchard is a joint Highland Council and Health Service child care facility that is situated in the Lochardil area of Inverness, surrounded by private housing and adjacent to Drummond School.
The accommodation consists of three main living areas namely Squirrels, Badgers and Foxes. The living areas known as Squirrels and Foxes provide respite and short breaks and Badgers provides a residential service.
The aims of The Orchard are:
To provide a high quality short break service to families caring in the community for children and young people
affected by severe and complex disabilities.
The service will be delivered in partnership with family carers and in collaboration with health, education and
other relevant professionals.
Service users will play a key role in the on-going evaluation and improvement of The Orchard service.
The Orchard will consult with those using the service as to whether the needs of each individual are being met
as effectively as possible, and what improvements could be made to the way care is delivered.
A carer reference group will contribute to enhancing the standards of care.
