Elmsmead provides support for 12 individuals with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, autism, mobility issues and associated high care needs.

Our aims are to provide a warm, welcoming and open environment and to enable the residents to live as ordinary a life as possible, learning and developing new skills and experiencing new opportunities. We pride ourselves on enabling choice and treating each person as an individual. We apply a person centred approach to all aspects of support to ensure that each person can live as independent and high quality life as possible. We offer people the opportunity to attend local colleges and voluntary groups and are getting involve in local events.

We have a well-trained and skilled staff team who provide 24 hour care and support. The staff support each person to develop their feelings and emotions in a positive way in order to achieve their goals and aspirations and become more independent. This is carried out with the support of a range of external medical professionals, occupational therapists, psychologists and psychiatrists, as well as family friends and advocates. Staff have the knowledge and experience to support individuals with severe challenging behaviour.
