At Longmore Road we support seven people who have learning disabilities, epilepsy and other complex needs. We also support autistic adults.
We understand that each individual has their own needs – we work flexibly to make sure these are met. Everyone is supported to take part in meaningful activities according to their needs and wishes.
We use a range of communication techniques with support from a speech and language therapist where required. Everyone has the opportunity to attend house meetings and to be involved in the running of the home, whether this is through cooking, gardening or cleaning.
Our residents are supported to experience opportunities for personal development, both within the home and in the wider community. This may include making use of local sports facilities and social groups as well as going on holiday.
We like to empower the people we support to take control of their own lives. We encourage a family atmosphere so the people we support have a certain level of respect for each other.
Longmore Road is a detached house with seven bedrooms, two bathrooms and a wet room.
The shared areas include a lounge, a kitchen, a dining room/conservatory and a large garden with an enclosed pond, a swing and three patio areas.
The staff team have experience of supporting people with a range of needs, including epilepsy, peg feeding, Angelman syndrome, sensory needs and challenging behaviour.
Our home is able to support people with some physical disabilities. All staff receive specialised and mandatory training within the first six weeks of induction, this is based on the needs of the people we support and our service.
Training is on-going and monitored to ensure all our staff are trained to the highest standard and also takes into account the staff’s personal development needs.
