About Robinson House
At Robinson House we provide support for people with learning disabilities, autism and challenging behaviour. It is our aim to improve the health and wellbeing of the individuals we support, as well as helping people to develop the skills they need for independent living.
Our approach to support:
The support at Robinson House is delivered by a dedicated multidisciplinary team of staff who aim to enable all people to make their own choices about the support they receive. Staff members work with each individual to create a Person Centred Plan which outlines the level of support required.
Our service also supports people who have epilepsy and diabetes. We have excellent contacts with the local GP, who regularly visits Robinson House, as do dieticians, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists and nurses specialising in diabetes and epilepsy.
What it’s like to live here:
The people that we support are encouraged through their Person Centred Plans to achieve their goals and aspirations. For some people this means attending college to access various courses, including cooking, art and daily living skills. For others it means 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. Daily tasks to develop these skills include shopping, cooking, doing laundry and cleaning. The people who live here are very proud of their home as they have so much involvement in creating it.
The local town has shops and cafés and pubs for refreshments. There is a regular bus service that provides easy access to the larger towns, which have bowling alleys, swimming pools, cinemas and other entertainment facilities. It only takes 45 minutes to get to the coast for a day at the seaside.
