Aire House provides specialist residential care for people with learning disabilities and complex needs. Some of the people we support have communication difficulties, as well as disabilities such as autism or epilepsy. We provide a safe and homely environment where people make their own choices about the support they receive.
Our residents are at the heart of all we do, and we are dedicated to empowering them to lead happy and fulfilling lives. The care and support we provide sees people improve their daily living skills, maximise their independence and achieve their true potential.
Our approach to support
Our dedicated multidisciplinary staff team tailor the care and support they deliver to meet the individual needs of each person, which may involve 1:1 assistance. We encourage and support everyone at Aire House to identify their goals and ambitions and plan together how they will achieve these.
At Aire House, we promote the development of social skills, independent living and personal responsibility. Our residents are proud of their home as they play a direct role in creating it. As well as enjoying the regular social occasions organised by the staff team, they get involved in daily duties such as cooking, laundry and cleaning, depending upon their abilities. The menu at Aire House is developed by residents to suit personal preferences and reviewed at monthly feedback meetings.
