At Highfield Farm we support up to nine people with learning disabilities and associated mental health problems.
We can support autistic people and other individuals who have varying needs, such as Prader-Willi Syndrome, Down’s syndrome, Rett syndrome and bipolar affective disorder.
Individuals enjoy an independent lifestyle attending college, working in the local community and volunteering in the local charity shops. Others choose to take advantage of the local amenities, visiting farms and the local busy town centre with its myriad of shops.
Here at Highfield Farm we have two spacious lounges both equipped with large flat screen TVs, dining room table and chairs and settees and easy chairs so people can choose where to eat their meals and where to relax.
We also have a brand new fully equipped kitchen and open reception area where families can visit their sons or daughters in a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. All the bedrooms have ensuite facilities with either a bath or shower, depending on the individual’s preference, and each room is decorated to their own needs and choices.
Everyone is encouraged to practice their daily living skills in a safe environment by helping to make small snacks and simple meals and their own drinks if they wish. The staff also help them to keep their rooms clean and wash and iron their clothes if they are able.
Highfield Farm is set in large gardens with a greenhouse where we grow vegetables in the summer months and a summer house where people can chill out and relax. Also in the grounds are three villas where individuals can continue to build their independence safe in the knowledge that they have access to staff 24 hours a day through a nurse call system.
