Since joining our residential service Jacob has begun communicating with staff and family.
Everyone who lives at Clayton Brook House takes part in a wide range of activities, which help them to develop new skills and have fun. We encourage people to develop their abilities by taking an active part in everyday tasks such as cooking, washing and shopping and learning to socialise by sharing activities with others. We engage with our local community and involve family, friends and everyone important to the people we support. Our Lancashire Centre, based nearby, provides access to even more activities, including sports, dance, art, music and education, all designed for autistic people.
“ We observed very sensitive and respectful interactions between people who used the service and staff. Staff showed understanding and consideration, when responding to people's support and care needs.”
Current residents are aged between 40-45 years old and are mostly non-verbal with additional learning disabilities. The placement would suit a male or female.
The service has experience of supporting additional health needs.
