Middlegate Lodge is a residential house, set in extensive grounds. It offers an opportunity for vocational activities, in a semi-rural setting, in Lincolnshire.
The house has five bedrooms and one self-contained flat, all of which are fully furnished, but everyone is encouraged and supported to personalise their rooms.
We have two communal rooms, which are equipped with televisions and radios for everybody's enjoyment, and a further ‘quiet’ room, where people we support can meet with their friends and family, or spend time alone and enjoy both peace and privacy.
A range of activities
Everyone at Middlegate Lodge helps to organise day trips to places of interest, as well as holidays that are further afield. People are invited to suggest ideas for these trips at our monthly meetings, which also provide individuals with the chance to provide feedback about their support.
People living here also plan their weekly menus, prepare and cook their meals individually, or as a group if they choose, and are supported by staff on their twice weekly trips to the supermarket to purchase their shopping.
Individuals are also responsible for keeping the house clean and tidy, as well as taking responsibility for doing their laundry and all other normal household tasks.
