At St Barnabas Road we provide care and support for six residents with a mild to moderate learning disabilities and autism. Our staff have lots of experience of supporting people with complex or challenging needs.
We recognise the importance of relationships with family and friends and visitors are welcome at any reasonable time. We also support people to develop new friendships as well as encouraging everyone to participate in house meetings and become involved in recruiting new staff.
The home is in a residential area of Emmer Green with close public transport links into Reading town centre and is only a ten minute walk from Caversham. Everyone is encouraged to participate in a programme of activities that reflects their individual choices and preferences. We have strong links with the community and access local facilities for the people we support such as using trampolining, bike riding and horse and carriage rides. One of our residents has a work placement at a garden centre.
St Barnabas Road has five bedrooms and a large communal/dining area which are well furnished. We have a large mature garden at the rear of the property which accommodates for a variety of activities and barbeques in the summer. We have a large kitchen which is ideal for our staff and residents to collectively participate in cooking activities.
