Agricola House

Agricola House provides support to eight adults with brain injuries. We support individuals who would benefit from increasing their independence in a supportive community setting. We adopt a person-centred approach, aiming to support people to regain their social, cognitive and independence skills whilst developing their confidence.

Supporting You

We can offer speech and language therapy, Neuro-physiotherapy, Neuro-occupational therapy and Neuro-psychology input as required. Programmes are carefully designed and integrated into each person’s daily routine and support will be based on rehabilitation techniques which strive to increase independence. Progress is monitored closely using Goal Attainment Scaling, which provides motivation and active vocational opportunities are available that can be developed at a pace appropriate to the individual.

Location

We are located in Tottington, so Bury is easily accessible and has a wide range of community resources, leisure, education and recreational activities. We are also close to the city of Manchester and the neighbouring towns of Bolton and Oldham which offers a multitude of opportunities for the people we support.

Facilities

Our setting is extremely welcoming and has been designed to the highest standard. We have eight bedrooms with level access en-suite facilities, all of which feel individual and unique to meet the needs of people with physical disabilities. We encourage the people we support to take an active and involved role in the household and the community. We also offer a wide range of communal facilities, including a training kitchen, a spacious living room and an assisted bathroom. There is an extra training kitchen where people can be supported by staff to develop their menu planning and food preparation skills. Our home is fully wheelchair accessible, and ceiling tracking is available as required. Externally there is a garden with a level access patio area.

About me

I joined Voyage Care in 2015. Since 1990, I have worked within the health and social care sector holding senior positions within several national care organisations. I will be providing guidance and support to the business on supported living. I joined from Affinity Trust where I held the position of Director of Operations and Quality.

About me

I have worked within the health and social care sector for 20 years, predominantly within the mental health and brain injury rehabilitation field. I have always enjoyed working in this environment and find my biggest motivator is being able to witness the people we support achieve their goals and move on from our services.
