About Mar Lodge
Mar Lodge provides assessment and residential support for seven adults living with a primary learning disability diagnosis but may present mild mental health difficulties. Some of the people we support may also present behaviours that challenge, and have dual diagnosis, as well as a range of other disabilities such as epilepsy or Down’s syndrome.
Our approach to support:
The support at Mar Lodge is delivered by a dedicated and professional multi-disciplinary team committed to providing quality care focused on the needs of the individual. We believe in a personalised approach and everyone living at Mar Lodge has their own Person Centred Plan which is reviewed regularly. Our aim is to provide the highest quality support enabling individuals to build on skills, live more independently, and reach their goals.
We encourage individuals and families to actively participate in the planning of support, which is facilitated through meetings throughout the year.
We work closely with local services such as the community learning disability team, community nurses, psychologists, speech therapists, local health centres, dentists, chiropody and other health care services.
What it’s like to live here:
Everyone at Mar Lodge is given the opportunity to exercise their choice and become involved in a wide range of activities, including accessing local day centres, colleges and work placements within the community.
Individuals are also encouraged to access the local leisure facilities including swimming, the cinema and theatre. Many in-house activities are offered, including art and craft sessions, cooking, board games, puzzles, gardening. People are encouraged to pursue and retain their own interests.
Mar Lodge, which benefits from a regular public transport system, is approximately half a mile from the centre of Melton Mowbray, in Leicestershire.
