Our service (one vacancy)

This is an active residential home for adults with a range of disabilities. We specialise in supporting and assisting people with sight loss.

Jordan (pictured) is supported by SeeAbility at Applewood and says:

I get to go out a lot which is great. The support I get here is good and I like spending time with my key worker.

We want to excel as a specialist provider of quality care and support, ensuring the people we support are at the heart of everything we do.

Our aim is to enable them to make choices and express their individuality. Personalisation is not a tick box exercise for us, but is fundamental to how we deliver our mission every single day of the year.

Our specialist support team work closely with the people we support, providing rehabilitation to people with sight loss to help them maintain and develop skills, and be more independent. We have speech and language therapists who support people with communication difficulties and the team also provides assistive technology and accessible information.

Access to SeeAbility's nearby activity and resource centre, the Bradbury Centre, can be arranged for each person, together with the potential to link up with trained volunteers to enhance interaction and community involvement.


Our facilities and accommodation

There are four bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities, and a ground floor self-contained flat. All have emergency call systems. Applewood also has a large shared lounge, kitchen and conservatory, and an accessible garden.

Please note this service is not wheelchair accessible.
