About Preston Avenue
At Preston Avenue we support four people who have learning disabilities and autism. We aim to provide a safe and homely environment, where everyone can make their own choices about the support they receive. 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 care:
Our experienced members of staff are passionate about providing just the right level of support for people who live here.
Everyone has a Person Centred Plan, which is created with the assistance of a key worker, as well as family contribution where applicable. They are encouraged to be involved in the planning of their support so that we can work as a stepping stone towards a more independent future.
What it’s like to live here:
There are many activities to get involved in at Preston Avenue. The people that we support are encouraged through their Person Centred Plans to achieve their goals and aspirations. Some individuals do voluntary work in charity shops, whereas others attend college or find full-time employment.
We encourage and support everyone to go out into the community to explore any future goals they may have and to maintain their independence.
Within the house we continually and consistently promote the development of social skills, independent living and personal responsibility. These include daily skills such as shopping, cooking, doing laundry and cleaning; tasks are dependent upon an individual's ability.
The service is very close to Newport town centre and there are bus stops at each end of the street. There are also good train and motorway links. A library and a leisure centre are a few minutes away and Newport Castle is also close by, providing an interesting walk whilst looking at the ruins.
