Warwick Road, Banbury OX16 2AB
Situated in the centre of the historic market town of Banbury in Oxfordshire, Agnes Court is a modern, purpose-built home that can accommodate up to 24 physically disabled adults.
Opened in 2008 by Her Majesty the Queen, the home is equipped with assistive technology, enabling residents to open doors, control lighting and use other facilities independently. The service is close to a variety of local amenities including pubs, restaurants, sports facilities, a museum, a library, parks, a cinema, and the Castle Quay shopping centre. The team regularly organise shopping trips to Oxford, Milton Keynes, and the outlets at Bicester Village.
Agnes Court delivers high quality care and nursing for adults with physical disabilities and complex needs. Regulated by the CQC, the dedicated and experienced team use a person-centred approach to ensure every individual’s needs are understood and met with the greatest privacy, dignity and respect.
Each individual chooses how they are supported, and lead very active lives. With a focus on independence, health, wellbeing and skills building, extensive activity programmes offer something for everyone. As well as staff, a team of committed volunteers support individual and group activities, so all have the chance to be social, get creative or enjoy exercise.
Agnes Court enables residents to get the most out of life, supporting individuals to maintain relationships with family and friends, and gain the ability to move on to more independent living when they’re ready.
Since founding in 1948, Leonard Cheshire Disability has supported disabled people in the UK and across the world to fulfil their potential and live the lives they choose. The charity has many homes in the UK which provide thousands of disabled people with high quality housing, care and support.
