At Church Road we support five residents with learning disabilities, autistic spectrum conditions and physical disabilities. Some of our residents also have challenging behaviour.
We aim to support each individual to achieve something which is meaningful and important to them. We work with each resident to create a person-centred activity programme. This could include starting college or completing other courses.
Adjacent to the home is Church Road Heights, a set of individual flats which can provide a stepping stone towards more independent living.
Church Road is situated in a small village on the outskirts of Bridgwater and has excellent links to local amenities and transport. We also have a good relationship with other people who live in the village and we regularly attend local coffee mornings. We have four vehicles, two of which are wheelchair accessible.
All of the bedrooms have ensuite facilities and there is plenty of shared space, including an area which is being developed for relaxation with sensory equipment.
We also have a large garden and our home is wheelchair accessible, with wide corridors and doorways and tracking in downstairs bedrooms,. Further adaptations can be made to meet individual needs.
Staff are pro-active, sourcing new activities and removing any obstacles to make activities accessible for all. Their attitude is that nothing is impossible. We promote choice and independence in everything we do, and focus on each individual’s wishes, needs and aspirations. We hold regular house meetings to make sure everyone has a voice.
