We believe that people with Learning Disabilities should be able to make choices about where and how they spend their time. We will work with the resident and their circle of support to develop an individual activity program that meets their needs. We work hard to ensure that all residents enjoy a full range of interesting, practical & creative activities, in a friendly supportive and safe environment.
Day Services at Oakdown House are provided primarily in one or both of our purpose built day service centres: The Mews & The Pavilion. Each centre is staffed by dedicated, fully trained support staff.
We offer a full & varied timetable of activities & opportunities across the week, which include:
Massage & Counselling Services
IT & Computer literacy
Independant Living Skills & Self Advocacy Groups
We also support & encourage residents to access activities within their local community , such as Hydro-Therapy, Swimming, Shopping, Social Clubs and other interest groups.
Residents are supported to access community college courses. Some may be held on-site by visiting tutors, whilst others are off-site at local colleges.
Many of the courses which the residents attend are accredited, which enable students to work towards a nationally recognized certificate. They incorporate a blend of activity-based curriculum within a framework for the development: assessment and accreditation of key skills and other personal and social skills. The emphasis is on negotiation, co-operation and rewarding achievement.
If appropraite & wherever possible, we support residents to find employment (paid or voluntary) at a level that suits them best. Employment promotes indepedance, responsibilty & acheivement.
A huge choice of activities is available both on and off site.
A range of art and craft groups are on offer each week.
Cooking for every taste and ability
