Oakwood House

Oakwood House in Stoke on Trent is an innovative community housing service for adults with Intellectual Disabilities (also known as Learning Disabilities) and Autistic Spectrum Disorders. Transforming Care was introduced as a Government Initiative to enable people with these disabilities to move out from long-stay institutions into their local communities with the correct level of support in place. This is precisely what our service at Oakwood House offers. Not only is our service available to those preparing to move out from hospitals, it is also an option for those already living in the community who may simply wish to change where they live or who require additional support.

There will be an on-site team at Oakwood House and if required outreach support can be provided by our the team at nearby Eldertree Lodge, who are highly experienced in working with adults with Intellectual Disabilities, including individuals who have challenging behaviours.

Care at Oakwood House

Independent living

Each tenant at Oakwood House will have their own flat comprising a bedroom, bathroom and living area. Tenants will be able to decorate their flats as they choose and to add the small touches to make it into their own home.

We want all our tenants to live as independently as possible and to be able to live full and enjoyable lives without care provision being the focal point. To help achieve this, our tenants will be responsible, with support from our on-site team if needed, to pay their own rent, pay bills and manage their own day-to-day living.

Person-centred, proactive care and support

We will be incorporating the Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) model of care at Oakwood House. PBS focuses on understanding the main reasons behind why challenging behaviours occur and constructing approaches that reduce the likelihood of these occurring in the future.

By considering each person (and his or her life circumstances) as a whole including the impact of traumatic or adverse life events, we can plan and implement ways of supporting each individual and teach new skills to replace problem behaviours.

Advice and Support

Advice and Support

Our tenants will be encouraged to create their own home, to be independent and to have choice. They will be encouraged to be involved in all aspects of our service.
