We provide residential care for individuals with Learning Disabilities including autism and associated conditions such as Asperger’s Syndrome.
Our residential care placements are based on Newall Green Learning Disability Farm, in South Manchester. They are small units within the community.
Typically these units provide a robust model for those requiring a living environment with strong boundaries. They are limited to a maximum of four people, to reduce the compatibility conflicts that can occur within this more complex group of individuals.
We are always looking at the care pathway, and the ability to offer the least restrictive environment for the people we support. Registered care offers a significate step down in the level of restriction placed on a person in a hospitalised or institutional environment.
The environment is a key factor in the management of behaviours. The ability to implement a full range of community based activities as outlined in our Therapeutic activity section, combined with a Positive Behavioural Support approach, creates an environment where individuals are safe and can start to broaden the focus of the world they reside in, and benefit from this positive stimulation.
With Supported Living placements also available at Newall Green Learning Disability Farm, there is also the option enabling people to step down the care path way again to this least restrictive service, gaining their own tenancy and securing a home for life.
