Priory Avalon is a rehabilitation and recovery service based in Cardiff that supports males and females with learning disabilities and/or mental health challenges.
We focus on short and long-term rehabilitation whilst providing a safe environment which facilitates independence and dignity, through the development and review of individual care plans.
All individuals are involved in designing their own person-centred care plan with staff support. These plans are tailored to suit individual requirements and to provide the correct level of support.
Individuals are supported with recognising, identifying and achieving their own goals and ambitions, and encouraged and supported to participate in meetings promoting self-advocacy and empowerment, in a supportive environment.
Monthly meetings are held to offer individuals the opportunity to voice their views about the support they receive and personal activity timetables are completed with the individual, to suit their preferences and abilities.
Focus on Safety
Our absolute priority is to make sure we operate safe and effective services 24/7 and that all staff understand what is required of them to make that happen. Click here to read more.
We believe the setting in which treatment takes place is just as important as the therapy itself. Avalon is set over three floors and all bedrooms are spacious, well-furnished and individually personalised. Communal areas are tastefully decorated and provide a comfortable and homely living environment. They include:
- A kitchen
- A dining room
- 2 lounges
The home is located near to central Cardiff and is easily accessible from local major towns and cities. It is a short walk away from local amenities and is ideally located for safe, structured and gradual reintegration into the community, along with excellent transport links to the city centre.
We are committed to providing a safe environment in which individuals can explore freedom of choice and expression and make decisions associated with everyday living. Our team offers support to individuals, focusing on their abilities and needs. This is achieved by facilitating independence and dignity through the development and review of individual care plans.
