Valley View

Valley View is the sister home to Highfields and is situated next door to it in the same private residential area close to centre of Swadlincote in Derbyshire.

The home is a purpose-built specialist bungalow that offers residential accommodation for up to eight adults with learning and physical disabilities. Valley View offers a secure, comfortable and welcoming home where we aim 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

Each of the bedrooms is decorated to our resident’s individual wishes, They all have specialised furniture and four of the rooms are equipped with fully automated ceiling hoists to the ensuite bathrooms. In addition the home has specialised bathing and showering facilities.

The bungalow has been decorated and furnished to a very high standard, which contributes to the homely and friendly nature of the home. There is a large lounge, dining area and sensory room that also acts as an activity space for the residents.

To the rear of the property there is a large patio area and sensory garden which has full access for wheelchair users.

At Valley View we are totally committed to delivering person centred care. Each resident’s needs are fully assessed and care plans and risk assessments are put in place that set out to support their individual needs and wishes. These are regularly reviewed and updates so as to reflect everyone’s changing circumstances.

Valley View operates an ‘open hours’ visiting policy, and we encourage visiting at any reasonable time of day. We want family and friends to become a part of our community and visits can be made private if someone wishes. 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.
