At Parkgate Road we provide support to five adults with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and associated healthcare needs. The people living at the home are in their 20s and 30s and engage in a variety of activities both in the home and in the local community, using educational leisure and social clubs.
Each person has an individualised package of support, dependent on their needs, and are encouraged to devise and engage in a weekly programme of activities with an emphasis on developing their individual skills and broadening life experiences. The flexible staffing allows everyone to have the support they need to engage in the activities that they want to, developing life skills with the view to be able to live more independently in the future.
Each person is also supported to develop a unique communication plan, which ensures that their views and wishes are heard and upheld at all times.
The home has good sized communal areas, an accessible garden and has the homely feel of a small service. There is a passenger lift to accommodate people who use a wheelchair to access the first floor.
A dedicated and flexible team of staff work under the guidance of an experienced manager. Staff support and encourage individuals in various aspects of their life, to truly get the best out of everyone.
