351 Maidstone Road offers support for people with learning disabilities and associated complex needs including autism and Asperger’s Syndrome or those who present challenging behaviours. The home is also able to accept referrals from people who have some mobility needs. We can also offer transition services for young adults who are leaving school or who are at risk of placement breakdown.
We currently provide support to five individuals with a range of needs. There are opportunities to continue education through our links with local colleges and to seek employment. The team look for creative ways to support people to develop the skills required for independent living, such as budgeting, maintaining good health, personal safety and managing their household responsibilities.
351 Maidstone Road is located in a quiet suburban area of Wigmore in Medway, approximately 45 minutes from London and within easy reach of local amenities and transport links. We have a house car and there is a bus stop within a five minute walk which has buses into town or to the local shopping mall. Alternatively we are only a 20 minute walk from Rainham train station meaning people can travel independently. This offers great access to activities and events, such as bowling, swimming, trips to Riverside Country Park or the seaside as well as joining people from other local services for parties! We also support each person to plan and book a holiday, with recent trips including holidays to France and Chessington World of Adventures.
351 Maidstone Road is a large detached house with a lounge, dining room, kitchen, quiet area and spacious communal back garden. All of the bedrooms have ensuite washrooms, three with their own shower for added independence. There is an annex including a separate lounge, kitchen and large bedroom with an ensuite bathroom giving greater independence for an individual requiring less support or more personal space for someone requiring intensive one to one support.
