Croft House is a renovated property offering support for six individuals with autism and challenging behaviour.
Our residents are encouraged to develop and experience a range of activities with full support.
Croft House is located in the village of Thurcaston, on the edge of Charnwood Forest. Thurcaston is a popular, well-established residential area, surrounded by unspoilt countryside yet within easy reach of shopping, leisure and educational facilities in Leicester and Loughborough.
Our home can be reached using public transport, including regular local buses. Croft House is close to the combined villages of Thurcaston, Rothley and Anstey, which offer a wide range of local amenities including local shops, a post office and supermarkets, as well as health services.
Beauty spots such as Bradgate Park, Swithland Woods and Cropston Reservoir, and leisure facilities such as cinemas, bowling centres, sports facilities, art galleries and riding schools are all nearby.
The Wheatsheaf pub is within walking distance with a popular ‘Curry Night’. We also have two leased vehicles available.
Our home has been robustly designed to respond to and support the needs of people who have challenge behaviour, whilst providing an environment that is warm and homely.
Each of the six bedrooms, two on the ground floor and four on the first floor, have en-suite bathrooms with either a bath or a shower, depending on individual preference. We encourage people to bring their own belongings and to decorate their rooms in the style they prefer.
We have a large lounge, leading into a conservatory which is currently used as the dining room. This overlooks a secure rear garden, which is surrounded by a hedge.
A separate activity centre is provided at the rear of the property, where our residents can pursue a range of interests. There is a large domestic scale kitchen where each person may be supported to prepare meals and snacks, as well as a smaller quiet lounge overlooking the front garden. There is a small equipped sensory room on the ground floor.
