Parkbrook Lodge provides person-centred support to eleven people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and associated complex needs. We are also a Prader-Willi specialist home.
The people living at Parkbrook Lodge are encouraged to take pride in their home and are supported to undertake domestic tasks in line with their capabilities. Everyone is encouraged to be involved in cooking meals, all menu planning, budgeting and the purchasing of the food.
Our residents organise many events themselves, such as parties, barbecues and discos, and are encouraged to discuss activities they would like to participate in. Current activities include swimming, ten pin bowling, trips to the cinema and theme parks, horse riding, photography, cycling and walks around the local countryside.
We access local colleges and a rural farm project to promote individual development, education and life skills. We also provide in-house activities including baking, arts and crafts, bingo and computer work. Staff support everyone to take holidays and short breaks to destinations of their choice.
Parkbrook Lodge is located near Rocester, a small picturesque village with easy access to local amenities. It is only five minutes from the market town of Uttoxeter which has a railway station and we are also on the local bus route.
We have two vehicles, which are used for holidays and other activities. In addition to this, we encourage each individual to develop their independence through travel training, which includes using public transport.
Parkbrook Lodge offers an extremely attractive homely environment and everyone is encouraged to decorate and furnish their own rooms and home to their tastes and preferences. The home has ten attractive bedrooms, each with a spacious en-suite shower room or bathroom. Complementing the bedrooms, there are communal rooms including a lounge, a dining room, a kitchen, an activity room and a conservatory which leads to a large garden.
