Godfrey Care is delighted to announce that work has started on building the groups second residential home for adults with complex needs, learning difficulties, autism, and behavioural difficulties. The home will be based on Ashby Road, Burton Upon Trent and will be an extensively sized family home, comprising of six en-suite bedrooms, large communal areas, substantial garden spaces, and a purpose built sensory area to help service users enjoy a high standard of life. In addition the home will have an office, en-suite wet rooms, communal bathroom, large family style open plan kitchen & dinning room, two lounge rooms for both relaxation and activities as well a large open plan sensory room for service users to relax in and engage in different forms of therapy. The service will employ in excess of 25 full time staff who will all be trained in specialist NAPPI techniques as well as Autism and Epilepsy that will ensure they can offer positive influences on each service user and minimise the levels and frequencies of challenging behaviour. The home will be run by Sarah Lycett who has recently joined Godfrey Care. Sarah has in excess of 7 years management experience in this sector and a wealth of experience and knowledge that she will bring on board to the existing Leadership Team at Godfrey Care. The launch of our second home in the Staffordshire region is testimony to all the hard work and commitment to providing the highest levels of care and recognition of the person focused approach we strive so hard to achieve. With the opening of Ashby House we will be able to further our service offerings to the local community that we are committed to and mark this landmark step in the expansion of Godfrey Care.
