Woodpecker Lodge is a beautiful bungalow, located within the grounds of Weir End House, and provides support for up to 7 individuals who have learning disabilities, mental health problems and autism. Our service is able to provide people with a safe and supportive environment where they can be fully involved in their care and support planning in order to lead a more independent and fulfilling life.
Our approach to support
We aim to enable all individuals to make their own choices about the support they receive. We do everything we can to improve the health and wellbeing of the individuals we support and as a team we are focused on building positive outcomes for everyone.
We believe it is important for the people we support to maintain involvement with the local community and it is our aim to enable people to live as independently as possible in the future. People living here work very closely with the local community and are involved in various groups and are members of different committees.
We encourage and support everyone at Woodpecker Lodge to recognise and identify their goals and ambitions and how they would like to go about meeting them.
We also promote Priory Adult Care’s communication strategy, "Your Voice", which encourages individuals, based on their preferred method of communication, to voice their views about the support they receive. Monthly meetings are held where individuals are able to represent the views and voices of themselves and others living at the service.
“You have really helped me to understand myself better and become more confident and happy.”
