Callum’s successful transition to Rivendell

Read all about how staff facilitated Callum’s smooth and successful transition to Rivendell

Callum has recently transitioned into Rivendell in The Wirral, which is his first home without his mum.


Staff at Rivendell have been working very hard to ensure that Callum was settled and content throughout the entire moving process. The team closely worked with Callum and his mum to make a comprehensive transition plan, which put his happiness, comfort and ease first. Staff got to know Callum through a number of online meetings which helped to facilitate the smooth delivery of the plan, as well as to tailor it to his needs. This was not only finding out his clinical history, but also getting to know him on a personal level; finding out his likes, dislikes and hobbies, and making sure that they had lots of fun activities planned for his arrival



Callum has now been at Rivendell for over a month, and is absolutely loving it! For the first couple of weeks, Callum, his mum and staff had daily updates, showing mum all the amazing activities Callum got up to, as well as making sure Callum got to still have daily contact with his mum.


His mum stated: “I am amazed how well he has settled in his first week and well done to all the staff, he looks so happy- I’m made up! Wow, our Cal hoovering! Who would have thought!” Indeed, staff have encouraged to pursue his new passion- housework!


Kirsty Sudlow, the manager at Rivendell would like to extend her thanks to all the team for their continued support and dedication to providing Callum with the highest possible quality of care and support.


Well done to everyone at Rivendell, and well done to Callum!
