Our approach to support

Everyone who lives at Bedborough House has their own person-centred care plan, which is co-produced with input from the individual, their family members and professionals involved in their care. We aim to help everyone in our care to make their own choices about the support they receive. This may include support in a number of areas, such as going out in the community, daily living skills, cooking/meal preparation, social interaction and personal care. Our team are dedicated to supporting the people we care for to enhance their quality of life and help them to feel part of a community.

Our support approaches at Bedborough House include:

  • Positive behaviour support (PBS)
  • Occupational therapy (OT)
  • Physiotherapy
  • Speech and language therapy (SaLT)
  • Psychology

In addition, we use tools such as Life Star to support our residents to achieve their goals. The lengths of the placements that we offer at Bedborough House can be medium or long-term residential, depending on the needs of each person.


Everyone who lives at Bedborough House has their own personalised activities planner and are encouraged to take part in activities which are meaningful and fulfilling to them. Our dedicated team organise a variety of activities at the home, as well as out in the community.

We focus on supporting our residents to grow their independence. For some people, this may mean developing their daily living skills within the home. For others, this could be accessing work or educational opportunities in the local community.

Exclusion profile

  • People who display behaviours that challenge, that could result in resident-to-resident physical contact

Every individual we support is provided with a bespoke pathway plan, tailored according to their individual needs. We aim to ensure that each person is supported to live a fulfilling and active life in the community.

Comments from our residents and their family and friends

Bedborough House has always been good at communicating with me about my son. The development he has made while living at the home has been clear to see. I have my son back - he is happier, smiling and in good health. Thank you to the team at Bedborough House for changing my son’s life for the better.
