Evergreen supports people with learning disabilities and challenging behaviour. We do everything we can to improve the health and wellbeing of the individuals we support, and as a team we are focused on building positive outcomes for everyone.
Our approach to support:
The experienced staff team at Evergreen are trained to support the people who live here to live their lives as independently as possible.
With the support of staff members, individuals are encouraged to get involved in designing their own Person Centred Plan. Plans are tailored to suit individual needs and outline the correct level of support required. They also enable people to make their own decisions about the support they receive. We encourage and support everyone at Evergreen to recognise and identify their goals and ambitions and what steps are needed in order to help them to achieve them.
Evergreen promotes Craegmoor's communication strategy, "Your Voice", which encourages individuals, based on their preferred method of communication, to voice their views about the support they receive. Monthly meetings are held where individuals are able to represent the views and voices of others living Evergreen. This is extended to area, divisional and national level.
What it’s like to live here:
Some people living at Evergreen like to attend college to access various courses, including cooking, art and daily living skills. Others enjoy accessing work placements and other day opportunities in line with their goals.
Within the house we continually and consistently promote the development of social skills, independent living and personal responsibility. This includes daily skills such as shopping, cooking, doing laundry and cleaning - with tasks dependent upon an individual's ability. The people who live here are very proud of their home as they have so much involvement in creating it.
Evergreen is located on the outskirts of Bristol. Blaise Castle, Severn Beach and a shopping centre are nearby, whilst local amenities include cinemas, pubs, cafés and ten pin bowling.
