Orchid House, in Swindon, provides residential care and support for six young men and women with learning disabilities, autism and associated complex needs.
The home has five spacious double bedrooms, all ensuite, and a separate, self-contained flat for someone who benefits from a more bespoke support setting but can also enjoy the facilities and community aspects of the main home. There is plenty of shared, communal space for leisure activities, dining and socialising, including two lounges, one of which is designated a quiet area. There is also a specially-equipped sensory room.
The home has its own Day Activities Coordinator and everyone is supported to get involved in a range of activities of their own choice, both in the home and out in the community, to develop independence skills and live life to the full.
Orchid House is within easy access of local shops and amenities, about two miles from the centre of Swindon. A vehicle is available for visits and outings, including sailing, farm visits, ‘hopping’ and meals out.
