A purpose built modern bungalow designed for people with learning disabilities and any associated mobility difficulties.
The company first purchased 20 Newlands Close in April 1992. Back then, it was a smaller property and was limited in the service it could provide. At the start of 2002, the decision was taken to completely renovate the property, we wanted to provide a service for people either in their later years or with mobility difficulties. Some of the individuals in our other homes have been with us for many years and we wanted to ensure that if their needs change with age, we could offer them a service with accommodation that is better prepared for mobility difficulties.
In 2012 developed the establishment for the final time and ensured we could be a positive option for anyone looking for new accommodation.
This 7-bedroom purpose built property can now offer easy wheelchair access, providing support for people who have a learning disability with associated mobility difficulties, in high specification surroundings.
The bungalow affords two lounges, two bathrooms, a large, modern and well equipped kitchen with a spacious open plan living area containing a dining room leading to a comfortable living area and a patio with a large secluded rear landscaped garden.
There is sufficient space to be able to provide social events or private time.
Bathing & washing facilities
To ensure we meet the needs of all those who reside the home, our specialist bathroom facilities ensure the individuals are safely and securely supported into the bath or shower.
We have installed a specialist bath in one of the bathrooms and depending on the needs of the people who use our service, this particular bathing system can help transport an individual from their bedroom to the bathroom in one easy transition. We also have two large walk in showers which provide a genuine choice of washing facilities.
In all bathrooms and en-suites we have also installed an alarm and pull cord system for extra safety and support.
To ensure each person is comfortable and has a sense of ownership, the bedrooms are decorated to the individual’s personal taste. In every room there is a wash basin, in some there are en-suites available, one with a large double shower facility. All bedrooms have a telephone connection and internet access available. We have also installed in every bedroom an alarm and pull cord system for extra safety and support.
Levels of support are tailored to the needs of the people using our service, at present this service offers 24 hour support to the seven people who reside there. The staff team are well trained, experienced and committed to the individuals. With life-plans in place and a strong emphasis on person centered planning, there is no doubt this home and those who live there will receive a service which will provide a high level of support and maximise their opportunities.
This is all part of our commitment to the people who are reaching the later stages of life, we promised a long term service and that is exactly what we have delivered.
