Springfield House is a large modern home located just two miles away from Gloucester city centre. It currently offers care and support to female service users, who have learning disabilities, a mental health disorder and associated complex needs.
The detached home is in an ideal location, providing a safe and supportive retreat for its service users, while integrating a social minority into mainstream society. The location of the home makes it convenient for Gloucester city centre and its amenities, including Gloucester Leisure Centre, local colleges, Gloucester Docks and the busy town centre.
The spacious accommodation includes two single bedrooms on the ground floor and four single bedrooms on the first floor, all fully en-suite. On the first floor there is another separate, large bathroom. There is also a communal lounge next to the dining room, which allows good communication and promotes a friendly communal atmosphere, a quiet room and a well-equipped, modern kitchen leading out to a small safe garden.
The large dining area also functions as an activity-based group work room for activities such as dancing and pottery, which are run by external providers. It leads onto a patio area at the back of the garden, which has steps down to the small lawn area, perfect for picnics during the summer!
The kitchen is fully-equipped to provide a holistic range of meals. There is a cookery group for all service users each week, to promote their daily living skills in a safe environment.
Situated within an urban environment, Springfield House provides a home with easy access to local services and facilities. The home also has its own transport which is used regularly for activities in the community.
