Life-changing support for adults with learning disabilities and autism.
Type of property
Vale Road apartments offer the ideal mixture of independent and shared living space. In these apartments, people can benefit from a vibrant network of staff and friends, while having peace and quiet when they need it too.
Vale Road has four apartments, each with a kitchen and lounge area. The apartments are a mix of open-plan and separate rooms. Some have wet-room style bathrooms, while others have a bath and shower.
There is a communal room with a TV and sofa for people to socialise too. Vale Road also has an accessible garden with a patio for people to relax in when the weather is good.
Assistive technology includes a Tunstall nurse call system in every apartment, and one apartment has a door sensor.
Valued in your community
At Vale Road, we are fortunate to be located in a vibrant residential area close to Mansfield. The local area has cafes, pubs and restaurants, high-street banks, a post office and a library. There’s an Odeon cinema, the Four Seasons Shopping Centre and Mansfield Superbowl for tenpin bowling too.
For people who like to stay active, The Manor Sport and Recreation Centre provides year-round access to a gym and swimming pool, or there’s Sherwood Pines Forest Park for walking when the weather is good.
Living at this service
The ladies we support here enjoy volunteering, socialising, listening to music, watching television, walking, cooking and baking, shopping, swimming, sewing, and being in the community.
People choose how they spend their time - there are movie nights once a week, news nights to discuss politics, bingo nights, and parties. Visiting the coast, going bowling and to the cinema, and day trips to London are favourites.
“At Vale Road, the staff work hard to enable independence in the people we support. It’s great for people to learn how to become independent - it’s a stepping stone to help people progress to living on their own. Staff offer a lot of activities and work hard to build strong relationships of trust. The 24 hour support creates a happy and safe environment.” Manager, Vale Road
