Our residential care services are small, high-quality personalised residential care homes, which are adapted to meet the needs of the people we support.
If you need it we can provide specialist equipment to meet your needs – we support people to use personalised technology to help them to be as independent as possible.
We provide support that is built around you. Everyone we support is encouraged to take part in as many everyday activities as they can, whatever their needs. The support we provide focuses on giving people as much as control as possible over their life, from doing household chores to supporting people to eat and drink on their own.
People have choice too – such as deciding how your home is run, choosing your support workers and picking how you want to decorate your bedroom.
Our support focuses on helping people we support to live their life as independently as possible. People can learn and develop new skills, and residential care can often be a stepping stone to supported living.
