What the care home does well
31 Carter Avenue provides a homely environment on a domestic scale for up to six younger adults with learning disabilities. The staff group is stable, experienced and well trained. Due to cognitive impairments residents have limited capabilities so rely on staff for support with daily routines and individual personal needs. Staff provided flexible and consistent support to enable residents to take part in their preferred activities, many of which are community based.
