Adult Learning Disabilities and Autism
We provide two specialist services for adults who have Learning Disabilities or are on the Autistic spectrum. One is located in Scotland, the other in Cambridgeshire.
Whilst our two services differ, our commitment to our residents remains the same. We support our residents to live the very best lives they can. By believing in better, we help our residents to achieve more every day and to continue to develop and grow. We want every individual we look after to feel as if they are being supported by a family member and to feel completely at home and at ease in our service.
We believe our two adult services are quite extraordinary – not just in their settings – but in the care they deliver and aspire to. Our teams are highly experienced at supporting individuals with Learning Disabilities and on the Autistic Spectrum and are also driven by a desire to providing a level of care that is truly personal and transformative for the individuals we look after.
Our community at Moorpark Place consists of 25 individual houses, where each resident has their own home set within its own private grounds.
Our residents each have their own dedicated Support Worker who provides daily support with everyday tasks and with the running of the house. Our residents receive further specialist support from our on-site Clinical Psychologist, Occupational Therapist and Speech and Language Therapist.
Our residents and their families are totally involved in developing their own care plans and in choosing the way they live their lives. We encourage our residents to continue their hobbies, to try out new experiences and to learn new skills.
Residential and Short-Term
Our Conifer Lodge service is just for men, some of whom live with us long-term, others for just a short time before moving on. Whilst all our residents have a Learning Disability, some of our residents also have a mental health condition, such as bipolar disorder or schizophrenia or a long-term physical condition such as epilepsy or diabetes.
Our primary aim is to help individuals improve to a point where they no longer need to stay within our service. We don’t just focus on self-care and daily living skills, we look at building confidence through the learning of new skills and encouraging the trying out of new hobbies and activities. We also offer respite care for men living in the community, who might benefit from a change of scene.
