At Garfield Grange we provide respite for up to eight individuals who have a learning disability. We can support autistic people and other individuals who have epilepsy and Down’s Syndrome.
Our aim is to make every individual’s stay as enjoyable, fun and active as possible and ensure all their physical, emotional and social needs are met. Residents are encouraged to communicate their views about the service at any time and we also hold monthly guest meetings. We also use different communication methods to ensure everyone can share their opinions, such as producing pictorial menus.
Everyone can participate in baking, food shopping and other life skills tasks, if they wish.
The property is in a pretty rural village and community participation and presence is very important. We are always looking out for local events we can attend.
Some residents live with older parents, and coming to stay at Garfield Grange has opened up a variety of new social clubs, events and activities for them.
Garfield Grange is split between an eight bedroom house and a four bedroom bungalow with its own kitchen. The service is wheelchair accessible and we have specialist equipment, such as hoists, profiling beds and adapted bathrooms, to meet a range of needs.
The dedicated staff team create a positive and welcoming atmosphere. We have a low staff turnover, which allows for good continuity of support. We encourage staff to bring new ideas and creativity to the service.
