As part of the initial assessment process, people will be provided with accommodation that suits their needs and abilities.
Communal facilities include a dining room, a large central recreational area, lovely accessible gardens, utility areas and activities room with art and craft and IT facilities.
These rooms are all single with an ensuite shower wet room. All rooms are designed for wheelchair access, and possess overhead tracking for hoists. They are linked in to a central call alarm system. The rooms are attractive and light with furniture provided, and residents are free to bring additional furniture and items to personalise their rooms. All the cleaning and washing is done by staff, and residents’ meals are provided in the main dining room.
Woodside is a block of 14 self-contained purpose built flats, where residents can experience living in their own home. They can still take advantage of the programme of activities offered. Residents have the option to prepare their own meals with support from the staff, and are encouraged and helped to keep the flat clean and tidy. Support staff are on hand 24/7 to help with anything they need.
We also offer two purpose-built group homes, for five and six residents, where they can learn living skills and further enhance their independence. All rooms are en suite and both homes are equipped with their own laundry, large kitchen and lounge. The residents can choose to get involved with cooking meals, undertake cleaning tasks and do their own laundry with support. It gives them the opportunity to experience living in a home where all meals are planned, prepared and shared as a group, within a family atmosphere. They can still take advantage of the full range of activities in the main Centre.
