Elm Tree House
Located in Keynsham, Bristol, Elm Tree House (formerly part of Craegmoor) provides assessment and support for adults living with a primary learning disability diagnosis but may present complex conditions. Some of our service users also have communication difficulties or present behaviours that challenge, and predominately have dual diagnosis, as well as a range of other disabilities such as autism, Down’s syndrome or medical conditions such as diabetes and epilepsy.
The service offers 24/7 specialist residential support delivered by a dedicated and professional team committed to providing support focused on the needs of the individual. We are committed to providing just enough support to empower and encourage residents to develop the skills they need to live as independently as possible and achieve positive outcomes for all.
Elm Tree House is also supported by a quality assurance team who aim to empower residents to take control of their lives, and where possible, work towards a level of independence which fits with their skills, confidence and aspirations.

Our approach to support
We believe that choice is paramount; people are actively encouraged to make informed decisions and maintain independence. A key worker is assigned to each person to ensure a holistic approach to individual support. We encourage individuals and their families to actively participate in the planning of support.
Elm Tree House promotes Priory Adult Care’s communication strategy, "Your Voice". This exists to encourage people to voice their views about the support they receive either by means of our newsletter or through a meeting held on-site. These meetings allow everyone to represent the views and voices of others living at the service.
“Staff have helped me to really understand myself better and I now feel more independent.”
