At Cornerways we provide support to eight individuals who have learning disabilities, autistic spectrum conditions, challenging behaviour, epilepsy, physical disabilities and mental health needs.
We listen to the wishes of each of the residents at Cornerways to make sure we support them in the way they want. We always work towards greater independence, regardless of the individual’s disability.
We work with families and also outside agencies to ensure we have access to the equipment and training we need to achieve this.
Everyone is encouraged to attend house meetings where they can discuss a range of topics and give their views and information can be passed on to them. Our residents can also take part in staff selection and delivering staff training. We support everyone to try new experiences and make choices for themselves.
Our residents are enabled to have a full and active life, both within the home and out and about. There are opportunities to complete education courses, either at the local college or online.
We have experienced staff who have a good understanding of resident’s needs. We work together well as a team and make use of each member’s skills, such as art, sports and beauty therapy, attending course, swimming, bike riding all for the benefit of the people they support.
Cornerways is in a village just outside Wokingham, twenty minutes from Reading town centre. There are good local facilities and public transport links within walking distance.
We have a good relationship with people in the wider community, socialising and attending local events.
Our home has eight bedrooms, six of which have ensuite facilities. The lounge and conservatory are ideal environments where our residents can relax or participate in a variety of activities.
The home is surrounded by gardens, including a large, level paved area and is also wheelchair accessible. Adaptations can be made as needed, including hoist facilities.
