Woodhouse Hall is a 19th Century stone building located in the village of East Ardsley, West Yorkshire. Set in beautiful surroundings, the service is a 19 bed en-suite property, 9 of which are individual self-contained flats.
The main building provides support for individuals with autism, learning disabilities and behaviours that may challenge, with the flats developed for individuals requiring specialist support for mental health requirements, including personality disorder. The service has undergone major refurbishment programme to transform it into a modern home, whilst allowing the building’s original character to remain.
Our approach to care
We believe that each person who uses our service is a unique individual and as such will have a personal plan of support. We strive to encourage the people who use our service to exercise their own choices, feelings and emotions. We encourage independence through our philosophy of care and support people's wishes to privacy and dignity with total respect for personal beliefs and views.
We take care and effort to get to know and understand the people that we support, so that we fully recognise how we can best respond to their needs.
Our staff are fully aware of the possible factors that could lead to potential issues and are trained in how to use appropriate diversionary tactics. The staff team use Intensive Interactions to support people with communication. Known methods of communication are formulated into a communication dictionary to ensure that each individual has consistency from everyone who communicates with them.
"The staff understand my condition and are there to help me. Thank you for all your support."
