In close proximity to the town centre and its shops, sports and cultural activities as well as beautiful countryside areas, the safe environment and caring, experienced staff here enable people to realise their potential and gain independence.
With a large, pretty garden, including a sensory garden and vegetable plot, and spacious communal living areas, the house is located in a residential area with a lively community.
Staff are dedicated to helping people to do the things they love, and to become more self-sufficient. Professionals give people the power to have control over their own lives. Each person has a timetable at home which care workers create with them to reflect their needs and likes, such as social activities in the community.
They make daily use of the NAS day centres nearby, which offer a wide range of activities helping people develop their skills, confidence and independence. The home benefits from connections with local colleges, in adult education classes from creative drawing to pottery.
