At Aykroyd Lodge we provide care and support for up to six individuals with severe or profound learning disabilities, autistic spectrum conditions, mobility needs and complex communication needs.
We understand that it is the little things that make the biggest difference to people’s lives. The support and care delivered at Aykroyd Lodge is individualised to ensure that our resident’s social, personal and communication needs are met.
As well as working with the individuals and their family, we also work with a number of other professionals to ensure the people we support receive the best care possible. The people who live here are supported to make their own choices and to express which activities they enjoy using their preferred method of communication.
Our residents enjoy a wide variety of community activities, which include horse riding, arts and crafts, attending church or football matches, trampolining, local countryside walks, attending social centres and much more.
We understand that family relationships are very important. We welcome visits from family and friends at any reasonable time, depending on the individual’s wishes. We also support individual’s to have regular phone calls, write letters and go out for meals with family members.
