Our Unique Approach to Support
At Laurels we support people with a wide range of needs including;
learning disabilities and complex support needs such Autism, Epilepsy, Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities including those with behaviours that may challenge.
Each person who lives at The Laurels chooses how they want their own room decorated and what they want in it, they choose the activities that they take part in and are encouraged to assist with daily living tasks, some of the people we support have been supported to take voluntary work placements and some have attended college and courses at our local Aspire Centre. Each person is treated as an individual and is supported with this in mind, so some people may prefer to do more fun activities such as swimming, bowling, eating out, walking along the nearby beach, whatever the need we can cater for it.
We provide a relaxed approach to care and support giving each individual the time and understanding they need to achieve their goals and aspirations in life. The most positive and effective form of support is to listen to what each person wants and needs.
At Laurels we pride ourselves in our well equipped sensory room which the people that we support make full use of.
If you have anything that you think we may be able to help you with, please don’t hesitate to contact the manager at any time, she is always happy to help.
