The Priory Highfields - Staffordshire

Priory Highfields offers a unique residential home for those with autism and associated learning difficulties. We have extensive experience of working with young adults on the autistic spectrum and provide a home for life for those who require specialist help to meet their needs.

What we treat

Highfields offers a range of high quality, residential accommodation and care and support within ordinary housing for adults diagnosed with autism and associated learning difficulties, such as imagination, socialising, and communication.  Each resident has a personalised daily programme utilising different therapy approaches, activities and exercise. 

Our care ethos

We believe in good quality, individual care delivered by dedicated, motivated and well trained staff.

Our approach at Highfields seeks to reduce anxiety levels enabling residents to access a personalised, structured programme of fun and leisure, physical activity, education, work and life experiences. Individuals are therefore, able to engage in all aspects of their life with increased confidence, self-esteem and dignity.

We work closely with a team of professionals to deliver a holistic and therapeutic service to meet individual needs.

We provide person-centred and valued lifelong residential placements for adults who are diagnosed with autism and associated learning difficulties.  We do this through a unique approach based on therapies to meet individual needs and ordinary life principles.  At Highfields we promote community inclusion, life skills, structure and routine to support the individuals within our service to progress and develop to their ability. 

Family and friends are encouraged to be in frequent and regular contact with residents and staff.

All residents are actively supported to attend religious and cultural services and events of their choice.  We encourage hobbies and interests and are flexible in our approach to delivering an individualised, person led service.
