Sandsground is a large bungalow-style property on the outskirts of the rural village of Highworth, four miles north east of Swindon, providing 24-hour residential care for five men and women, primarily middle-aged, with severe learning disabilities, autistic spectrum conditions and associated complex needs.
The home’s five bedrooms have ensuite shower rooms, one of which has been modified and enlarged. Sandsground has a shared lounge and kitchen, a smaller, quiet lounge, a separate sensory room, and a conservatory and dining area that leads onto a safe, sensory garden area.
A heated summer house in the garden is used for arts and crafts and other organised activities, as well as being a great place to relax.
The home has easy access to a regular public bus service, but also has its own transport for local travel and leisure and recreational pursuits, including swimming and country walks.
