At 23 Cecil Road we provide care and support to six people with mild to moderate learning disabilities, autism, eating disorders and associated complex support needs, including behavioural support.
Our ethos is to support each person to develop their living and social skills to live as independently as possible and include all residents we support with the running of the home. We also offer supported living packages to people who want to receive support in their own homes.
Residents are encouraged to experience a range of activities tailored to their individual interests. Activities people we support currently enjoy include gardening, visits to theme parks, 3D cinema, discos, and the jump.
Dronfield has easy access to both Derbyshire and South Yorkshire through a range of different transport links – car, bus, train and by foot.
We are close to local education and recreation facilities and have good links with the local community as well as with specialist services in the area.
There are lots of leisure facilities available near to the home such as Dronfield Sports centre which has a gym, swimming pool and sports hall.
Tennis courts and crazy golf are available at Cliff Park and Graves Park is a short distance away which is open to the public and has animals.
There are many public footpaths around Dronfield and Dronfield Woodhouse that lead to walks through places such as Barlow and Baslow fishing lakes which is very close to the Peak District.
Cecil Road has six bedrooms, each with en-suite facilities to enable a more independent style of living and everyone has the opportunity to decorate their bedroom to suit their individual taste.
The home also has a large lounge, a fully accessible kitchen and a dining room. There is a well maintained large enclosed garden with a lawn and trampoline, a vegetable patch area and a large level patio area.
All staff complete a high level of varied training including National Diplomas, safeguarding vulnerable adults, administration of medication, autism awareness, crisis intervention, and understanding behaviour and specialism.
