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.
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.
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.
