Living at this service
The men we support here live with learning disabilities and mental health conditions.
At Laurel Close, people enjoy watching television, shopping, gardening, cooking, learning about science and the solar system, lifting weights, swimming, trampolining, going to the disco, visiting family, listening to music, walking, and being in the community.
People choose how they want to spend their time - day trips to the coast, science museums, Manchester, Birmingham and Peterborough are just a small example of places we’ve been recently.
“At Laurel Close we offer person-centred care, where people’s needs always come first. The staff focus on helping all the people we care for become as independent as they can, giving each person a chance to have a say in their care. The environment is calm and happy which creates a lovely atmosphere.” Manager, Laurel Close
