Situated in a private residential area close to Swadlincote town centre, Highfields offers residential accommodation for up to five adults with profound learning and physical disabilities. We do this in a wonderfully warm and homely environment, where our aim is to recognise the individual needs and wishes of each resident, whilst at the same time helping them to live amongst a caring and happy small community.


About the home

Our five bedrooms are all decorated to the resident’s individual wishes. They are excellently equipped with a range of specialist furniture and include fully automated ceiling hoists to the ensuite bathrooms. Complementing these are additional specialised bathing and showering facilities.

The home has generous sized lounge and dining spaces, as well as a sensory room which is well equipped with a range of visual, tactile and other sensory stimulus equipment. Outside there is a patio area and garden which is maintained year-round for residents’ enjoyment.

All our care is delivered on a person-centred basis. This means each individual’s needs are fully assessed and bespoke care plans and risk assessments are put in place. Where possible these are created and reviewed with input from the residents themselves.

Highfields operates an ‘open hours’ visiting policy, and we encourage family and friends to become a part of our community. When family members are unable to visit we will endeavour to offer home visits whenever possible.

We offer a very high standard of care for everyone, delivered by an experienced and committed team, who do everything they can to make our resident’s lives as rich and fulfilling as possible.
