Who we areWe are a specialist care home, without nursing, in Liskeard, Cornwall. We can provide 24-hour support to eight deaf and/or deafblind men and women over the age of 18. The people we support have a range of diverse and sometimes complex needs, including learning and physical disabilities, mental ill-health, and dementia. We have particular experience in supporting people whose previous placements may have broken down because of their complex needs.
We also specialise in supporting people to learn to live more independently – according to their abilities – by helping them to make the most of their existing skills, and developing new ones. In particular, we have been very successful in helping people build their confidence and then become involved in their local community.
What we can offer – how we support youWe will give you a safe and comfortable place to live. Our detached, single-storey home is fully wheelchair- accessible and has eight bedrooms, all with en-suites fitted with height-adjustable sinks. We also have two communal bath/shower-rooms with specialist hoists and the equipment you might need to be as independent as possible – while maintaining your privacy and dignity. Our lounge and dining room are very spacious and we have two modern, well-equipped kitchens. Our large garden has raised planting beds so that everyone can get involved in gardening, if they wish, and we have a conservatory with comfortable seating. We also have two vehicles – one of which is adapted for wheelchairs – so that you can get out and about.
We will always encourage you to voice your opinions, thoughts and ideas about the running of the home and to play an active part in planning menus, shopping, cooking and cleaning. We will also support you to create a ‘person-centred plan’. This describes what’s important to you, how you want your life to be – and what help you need to make this happen.
