Barley close is a residential care home for up to ten people with severe learning disabilities and related healthcare conditions. Located in Devon, Barley Close is just ten minutes from the beautiful scenic Jurassic coast between Axminster and Seaton. This lovely traditional old farmhouse gives you the true feel of “home from home” surrounded by stunning views of the countryside.
At Barley Close, we have a large communal lounge, dining and activity rooms, a spacious conservatory, kitchen, and an in-house sensory room. We also have a training kitchen with low level worktops where everyone can help prepare meals with support staff.
We have rustic, landscaped gardens with a large patio area and herb garden. Each of our bedrooms are large and comfortable with en-suite facilities. All the ground floor bedrooms are wheelchair accessible and have ceiling tracking. Further adaptations can be made to meet individuals’ needs.
All areas of Barley Close are specially designed to respond to the various needs of the people who live there, while maintaining a warm environment.
Barley Close is a detached house with beautiful views on three sides, set in the midst of a strong community. It is only two miles from the sea and three miles from Axminster, which has a range of facilities for our residents to participate in.
We aim to support each resident to live life to the fullest and we continually strive to discover new challenges, which enrich their life experiences. We offer a varied programme of in-house activities, including music, art innovation, massage and reflexology.
Everyone is encouraged and supported to make the most of the facilities available to them in the community, including social clubs, churches and schools. We provide varied activities, both within and outside of the service, which cater to our resident’s needs.
The care and support we offer at Barley Close is truly person-centred. Our friendly staff team get to know the people we support and tailor every day to their needs, choices and aspirations. Our care packages are carefully designed to reflect not only the person’s needs, but also their choices and aspirations.
