Living at this service
The three properties at London Road are suitable for people with diverse needs. London Road 1 is ideal for people with learning disabilities, while 2 and 3 can support people with learning disabilities, autism, brain injuries, mental health conditions and physical disabilities.
All properties are ready to welcome an able-bodied person who likes interacting with others within the property. London Road 2 is looking for a mature person who appreciates a quiet environment. 1 and 3 support people of different ages so everyone is welcome.
At London Road, people choose how they spend their time. Hobbies include listening to music, walking, watching television, going out for lunch, gardening, shopping, socialising and being in the community. Trips to the coast are loved by all.
At London Road 1, people particularly enjoy bowling, going to the cinema, doing arts and crafts, baking and swimming. People have been away as a group and as individuals to Butlins and Blackpool. The people we support here are aged between 45 and 70. One of the women likes drawing, drinking tea, shopping, eating out, talking and spending time with staff and other people we support. Another person loves dancing and going to the day centre.
At 2 and 3 London Road, people like to spend time inside the house, as well as visiting Blackpool, London and other UK cities. One middle aged lady enjoys going out into her community and spending time at home with her beloved cat.
“London Road is a supported living service for people who are more independent. The staff will work hard to promote and maintain independence with all of the people we support. They are encouraging towards people becoming a part of the local community. The atmosphere within this house is very relaxed and calm.” Manager, London Road
