Wolverton Court (formerly part of Craegmoor) is a specialist autism service that provides assessment and a range of high quality, specialist services to people with autism and/or learning disabilities, who may at times present severe behaviours that challenge.
Some of the individuals supported at Wolverton Court also have communication difficulties and other conditions such as epilepsy.
We are delighted to announce that Wolverton Court has been rated 'outstanding', following their latest inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) placing it in the top 1% of care homes in England.
Our approach to care
The service offers 24/7 specialist residential support to adults over the age of 18 and is committed to empowering and encouraging the individuals who live there. Staff provide the support needed to enable them to reach their goals and to develop their self-esteem and the skills they need to live as independently as possible.
Everyone at Wolverton Court is involved in designing their own person-centred plan, with the support of staff. Each individual has their own weekly timetable, detailing their preferred activities - which consist of in-house and community based activities.
Individuals are supported to attend college courses or access voluntary and paid work in order to build on their skills, self confidence and self-esteem.
We are also supported by our person-centred approaches team who provide positive behaviour support strategies to individuals using the service, and their team of support staff, to enable them to achieve positive outcomes.
The well trained team at Wolverton Court aim to improve the quality of life outcomes for people with complex and challenging needs. In doing so we are committed to using Positive Behaviour Approaches and strive to improve practice through review, action, research and the development and delivery of training. We can offer one-to-one psychological and psychiatric support where needed, and have access to a multi-disciplinary staff team.
