Our approach to support

Everybody who lives at Lansdowne Road 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, personal care, cooking and cleaning, and maintaining family relationships.

We also have support from a local multidisciplinary team, including Priory’s positive behaviour support (PBS) practitioner and a community learning disability team. In addition, we use tools such as the Outcomes Star™ to support our residents to achieve their goals.

The lengths of the placements that we offer at Lansdowne Road can be transitional, short-term, medium-term or long-term residential, depending on the needs of each person.


Everyone who lives at Lansdowne Road 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.

Family and friends FAQs

How does home leave work?

We support our residents to attend family events and visit their own homes, where this is line with their wishes or in their best interests. We will work with the resident and their relatives to ensure possible risks are managed and that everyone is supported. This may mean the individual’s key worker will come along on the visit.

Can friends and families visit?

Family and friends are welcome to visit. We have no restrictions regarding times or overnight visits, as long as the person’s care plan allows.

Will I be involved and kept up to date with the progress of my loved one’s care and support?

Yes, we strive to keep the loved ones of our residents involved in their care. Every month, families are invited to a meeting at the home, where they will meet with the residents’ support team and hear about recent happenings at the home. We can also arrange more regular catch-ups either in person or via telephone, to ensure families are kept informed.

Will my loved one be able to have a phone or call me?

Everyone who stays with us are supported to call their loved ones any time, via phone or video call. Family and friends are also able to call as often as they like. In addition, we can support our residents to get their own mobile phone, where appropriate.

What are the bedrooms like?

Bedrooms are all furnished and residents are supported to personalise them to suit their needs and wishes. We can support people to bring in their own furnishings and decorations, to make their room their own.

Are external doors kept locked?

Yes, the front door is locked as you would at your own home. Some residents may have the code for entry and exit while others may need staff assistance to do so. We have a large garden area and courtyard where individuals can freely exit and enter the building.

What do residents eat and how do meal times work?

There is a four week rolling menu that has been developed with the current residents’ likes, dislikes, and special dietary requirements all taken into account. We provide breakfast, a light lunch, main meal and supper. Healthy snacks are also available throughout the day. Residents are also able to bring food into the home as they wish, to promote independence. Should any individual not want what is on the menu, an alternative will always be provided.

How does laundry work?

Residents are given help to do their own laundry, as part of their activities of daily living. Our staff are on hand to offer support if and when it is required. Our team will ensure that residents always have access to clean clothes and bedding.

Who does the housekeeping and domiciliary tasks?

Most of our residents undertake domiciliary tasks such as cleaning, and there is a rota in place to assign tasks. Our care team support them with these tasks, and task allocation is also discussed in our monthly resident meetings. We also have a housekeeper on-site to support residents who are unable to clean.

Is there anything they can’t bring or have?

Residents are not allowed to bring illegal substances onto the premises. We would also ask that people do not bring high risk personal items into the house. We may place restrictions on some items where the risks cannot be appropriately managed, such as non-approved drugs and medications, solvent-based products, and lighters.

How do activities work?

Every resident has a tailored activities planner, which will include both in-house activities as well as visits into the community. Their key worker may use a variety of communication tools to ensure the resident can have an input into the planning of activities. There is an activities timetable in place with suggested activities in communal areas, and plenty of craft and games for people to access - dominoes is a firm favourite amongst our current residents.

How will residents be supported with their behavioural needs?

We use the PROACT-SCIPr-UK® framework, which means we focus on proactive strategies, rather than physical intervention. We recognise that people with a learning disability have the same aspirations and expectations as everyone else and should be empowered to achieve these, using the least restrictive practices possible. We require our care plans which include restrictions to be assessed frequently, for example procedures for interventions such as pro re nata (PRN) medication are regularly reviewed and removed, where possible.

Do residents and families have an input into the care plans?

We work with social workers, family members and residents to develop care plans which are in the best interests of our residents. We use a variety of communication tools and work with health professionals to aid each resident in having a say about every aspect of their care. Care plans are regularly reviewed, and family members will be asked for their input, where this is appropriate and in line with the resident’s wishes or best interests.

What are the car parking facilities?

We don’t have off-road parking at the service, but you can park for free on the road.

What is the smoking policy?

Residents can smoke by the designated smoking area in the back garden, which has a shelter. We don’t permit smoking inside the building, and this includes vapes. The people who live here are able to buy cigarettes and vapes at the shops, if this is what they choose.

What are your fees and how are they funded?

Our fees can vary, and are based on an assessment of each individual's needs. Many people are eligible for financial help towards the cost of support, and this funding can be accessed by contacting your local authority. Once funding has been agreed, we will work with your local care team to put together a bespoke package of care. Please note, referrals for NHS or Local Authority funded services must come from a referring organisation.
