Rowan Cottage is a large, bungalow-style house, converted from two, previously semi-detached properties, in the village of Burghfield, five miles south west of Reading. The home provides residential support for eight men of varying ages with mild to moderate learning disabilities, autism and associated complex needs.
The home’s spacious accommodation includes eight ground floor, ensuite bedrooms with two communal lounges, one designated a quiet area, a shared kitchen, dining room, games room, conservatory, laundry and staff office. Additionally, there is a separate ,self-contained one-bedroom annexe within the grounds, suitable for someone who benefits from a more bespoke environment while still having access to all the facilities of the main house.
At the rear of the property is a good-sized, safe, enclosed garden with an outdoor covered area. A dedicated day care building provides a space for individual and group activities, organised by the Home’s Day Activities Coordinator. The home also has close links with several local charities providing opportunities for volunteer work. Rowan Cottage is close to the local shops and pubs, and has its own transport for trips to swimming, to the gym and further afield.
