About the houses

Both houses have individually decorated bedrooms that reflect the personality of each resident. The homes also have large and airy communal areas, including lounges and a dining room. Complementing these is a sensory room that allows residents to experience a range of tactile and visual stimuli. Externally the homes have a secure and secluded patio area which is attached to an exceptional sensory garden, enabling resident’s to grow and tend their own fruit and vegetables.

A full time coordinator ensures that all our residents lead a busy, fulfilling life and that their interests, choices and needs are reflected in a wide variety of activities. These take place within the home and also in the community making use of our own minibus for regular trips out.

No two residents are alike in their personalities or needs and the care we give reflects this at all times. We develop individual care plans and each resident has two key workers who deal with specific aspects of a person’s care. We encourage close contact with families and our homes develop close and lasting relationships with relatives. 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.
