Residents have limited or no verbal communication skills, but we believe that this should not hinder their ability to make decisions or to express themselves. All our residents are encouraged to make decisions about their daily lives and adapt their rooms to reflect their personality. We believe life should be fun and help residents to experience as many social and leisure opportunities as possible.
Each resident has a trained and experienced link worker. There is also emergency support from a senior member of staff who is on call for advice.
