Avalon offers supported, community based living in a homely environment. Residents are encouraged to take an active role, and have their say in the daily running of the home.
In collaboration with the individual, commissioners and families, a detailed care pathway is formulated to meet individual needs through a person centred planning (PCP) approach. The person centred approach focuses on the immediate and the future, taking into account the needs, thoughts, concerns and opinions of the individual. Avalon also adopts active support and positive behavioural support (PBS) methods.
Residents are empowered to develop skills and make decisions to increase their independence and confidence aswell as live fulfilling and rewarding lives. Positive risk taking is encouraged as part of individual personal growth and experiences.
The home provides a range of therapeutic, educational, vocational and recreational activities with a strong focus on community integration and participation. Weekly activity programmes are designed around individual preferences and commonly include access to further education, work experience, day trips, sports, holidays, walking and many more.
