Who we are

We are a specialist registered care home, without nursing, in Bath. We can provide 24-hour support to eight men and women over the age of 18. The people we support are deaf, with additional complex needs, including physical and learning disabilities. We have particular experience in supporting people whose previous placements may have broken down due to their complex needs.

We specialise in enabling people to be as independent as possible – according to their abilities. We use a range of communication techniques, person-centred approaches, and positive risk-taking in all aspects of our care planning and review process. In this way, we can make sure that everyone is fully involved in their own support.

How we support you

We can give you a safe, homely and comfortable place to live. Our fully wheelchair-accessible home has eight bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite shower room. We also have a shared kitchen, lounge, dining area and conservatory. Our home is part of a larger complex with beautiful communal gardens, which people are free to use as they wish.

We will empower you to do things for yourself, supporting you with all aspects of daily life – from making healthy lifestyle choices and managing your medicines, to cooking, budgeting, learning new skills and getting involved in the local community.
