Valley Road is a specialist residential home for adults with learning disabilities, mental health needs, behaviours that may challenge and dementia. The home has made some great achievements and progress with the individuals they support. Some examples of this are:
• The development of close working relationships with the local Health Team, which enables a ‘fast track’ response when residents might be in crisis.
• The support of one individual to remain in the home longer than any other former homes they have been at. The team is breaking new ground in managing behaviour.
• Constructed a purpose-built annexe for an individual with behaviours that may challenge. During his two years at Valley Road, he has not had a single incident.
Many of the individuals at Valley Road have thrived and grown together. The home has a really friendly atmosphere, and visitors can often be heard saying: ‘It feels like a home as soon as you enter the front door!
