The services provided at Calvert House Calvert House supports people with acquired brain injury, learning disabilities and associated behaviours. It comprises of eight apartments within the support of a residential setting.
At Calvert House we understand that a move to a community based rehabilitation service is a big decision for the individual and their family.
No two journeys are the same, therefore we provide flexible support to meet individual needs. Because no two people are the same, we recommend you arrange a visit to see us to discuss specific needs, and to enable you to gain a greater insight into the service provided.
Our team at Calvert House work with individuals to develop their cognitive, emotional and independent living skills. Each person’s support and rehabilitation plan is bespoke to their needs, utilising person-centred planning tools.
We have a proven track record of supporting people to gain greater independence, and supporting people to move into their own independent accommodation where appropriate.
Calvert House is also able to support individuals who may require longer term support, and regular reviews are held to ensure the service offered is responsive to an individual’s changing needs.

Each person is supported to develop their own activity timetable which include leisure, educational, social and therapeutic activities to complement their own goals and aspirations.
