About Rose Farm House

Rose Farm House provides assessment and specialist support for adults with autism, profound, severe and moderate learning disabilities and who sometimes present with behaviours that challenge.

Some of the individuals we support also have communication difficulties and other conditions such as epilepsy.

Our approach to support:

The service offers 24/7 specialist residential support and is committed to empowering and encouraging the individuals who live there. Staff will provide the support needed to enable them to reach their goals and to develop their self esteem and the skills they need to live as independently as possible.

Everyone at Rose Farm House is involved in designing their own Person Centred Plan, with staff support. Each individual has their own weekly timetable, which details their preferred activities; these consist of in-house and community based activities.

Individuals are supported to attend college courses or access voluntary and paid work in order to build on their skills, self confidence and self-esteem.

The service is also supported by our Person Centred Approaches team who provide positive behaviour support strategies to individuals using the service, and their team of support staff, to enable them to achieve positive outcomes.

The well trained team at Rose Farm House aim to improve the quality of life outcomes for people with complex and challenging needs. In doing so we are committed to using Positive Behaviour Approaches and strive to improve practice through review, action, research and the development and delivery of training. We can offer one-to-one psychological and psychiatric support where needed, and have access to a multi-disciplinary staff team.

What it’s like to live here:

Rose Farm House provides support in an environment that is safe and conducive to to the wellbeing of each individual. Our aim is to deliver an increasing sense of self-management and empowerment that will lead to more independent living, with the minimum support required.

The service is central to local amenities such as shops that are within a short walking distance. Due to our location, we are also close to major tourist attractions including the beach, and encourage and support people to access these to complement and enhance other activities in their lives.

Individuals are supported to have regular meetings to discuss any issues and to be involved with the development of the service. Everyone is included in the running of their home; they are also enabled to be involved in the recruitment and induction of new staff.
