Our services & location

All our homes work closely with individuals to put in place a personalised support care plan. This enables them to lead the life they choose with as much control as possible over decision-making, daily routines, leisure activities and the level of assistance required by our trained and experienced care staff.

An important part of living life the way individuals wish, is having their own personal and private space. This is why we encourage our clients to personalise their rooms how they would like to.

A welcoming, calm, relaxing, family environment is essential for all of our services. We aim to build a lasting and easily accessible community and network for all clients, where they are able to develop lifelong friendships, to socialise and understand the importance of respect and tolerance for others’ privacy, lifestyle choices and behaviours. We also understand the importance to our clients of maintaining relationships outside our service. The locations of the homes make it easy for family and friends to visit and local transport links make it easy for clients to visit those important to them – we will help individuals learn the skills required to travel using these transport links.

Cheltenham park

All our homes are conveniently located near local educational, leisure, shopping, religious and other amenities. This enables clients to become involved in community life in the way they choose and feel comfortable with. Good transport links make it easy to access a wider range of activities and attractions in the surrounding areas. All our homes are also located near local parks, giving service users attractive views and access to green spaces for leisure activities or exercise.
