Coral House is located between Poole and Bournemouth on the south coast of Dorset. Our home offers residential support for seven males and females with a variety of needs. This includes people on the autism spectrum, individuals with a learning disability, and those who have a physical disability and/or dementia. We can also support those who have difficulties with communication, epilepsy, and Down’s syndrome.
The service is located in a quiet suburb, close to beautiful beaches and great coastal walks. Our team are dedicated to working with integrity, ensuring that the people we care for are at the very heart of what we do. We work positively towards achieving people’s hopes and aspirations, striving for excellence in all that we do.
