At Staffordshire County Council, we know how important a home is.
Greenfield House is a residential home for 10 adults with a learning disability located in the picturesque market town of Leek, commonly known as queen of the Moorlands.
Hawthorn House is a 24-bed residential home for adults with a learning disability. The home is purpose built for care, surrounded by large gardens making it the perfect setting for our residents to live. We provide a compassionate staff team to support residents 24 hours a day. Hawthorn House is set in an ideal location in a quiet residential area, close to local amenities and within walking distance to the beautiful cathedral city of Lichfield.
Horninglow Bungalows offers high quality care in a supported living environment for up to 16 adults with a Learning Disability and/ or Autism. We specialise in supporting adults who may also have a range of complex physical needs, health needs or behaviours that challenge. We support people with a learning disability to live how they choose, with the ‘helping hands’ of staff available when needed, to support with things like personal care, managing domestic tasks, and being part of your community.
We appreciate the incredible dedication of carers and acknowledge the challenges and responsibilities that may come with supporting someone with a learning disability or autism. We understand the importance of carers having a chance to recharge their batteries, to allow them to carry on in their caring role. We also understand the benefit for the individual of having a break away from the home for a few days, as they can be supported to establish new friendships, join in both internal and external activities, and just have some fun when staying for respite.
Douglas Road offers a 13-bed service for the purpose of planned short breaks for a range of people from the age of 16 upward with a presenting need of learning disability and other associated needs.
We understand how important it is for people to participate in meaningful activities which they enjoy. Our aim is to offer a wealth of inclusive person-centred opportunities supporting adults with a profound learning disability to live a valued lifestyle. Our mission is to promote independence whilst embracing an individual’s complexity of need.
