Our Residential Care Homes
We have two residential care homes for adults with learning disabilities.
The property in Cedars Road opened in 1992 and is home to eight people. It has a lovely big garden, with somewhere to sit in good weather. The house is very close to both Teddington and Kingston for banks, building societies and all shopping needs. There are pubs, restaurants, shops and cinemas all within walking distance and Bushy Park and the River Thames are just a stone's throw away.
The house in Mayfair Avenue has been open since 1999. It is home to four people. The home is situated in a residential road within walking distance of community facilities and public transport networks, and provides a clean, welcoming and homely atmosphere. The property has a large garden which residents are encouraged to help with the upkeep of.
We have a fully trained, dedicated staff team who know residents’ very well, and who support them to lead individual lives, promoting personal choice and assisting them to make decisions about their lives. Our residential homes are staffed 24 hours a day with two staff on duty from early morning until late evening and one member of staff staying overnight.
The people in our care are supported and positively encouraged to be healthy and active and to make their own choices while trying a variety of different activities and opportunities eg. Golf, Swimming, Dance and Drama, Healthy walks, Horse Riding, Trampolining, Music Therapy, Hydrotherapy, Water Skiing and Gateway club (social club for people who have a learning disability). They are proactive in choosing holidays, and included in all decision making that concerns them and their home.
We believe it is important for our service users to participate in their local community - making regular use of local shops, banks, cafes and other amenities - and to keep regular contact with friends and families and do all we can to encourage and support this.
We feel that, when living in a group setting it is important that each person understands their individual rights and responsibilities, for instance, each resident will have a home base day each week, when they are encouraged to use the time to do their personal shopping and are supported to do any tasks such as their laundry and housework.
