The Bungalow is a home set in mature gardens within a rural location near Tingrith, Bedfordshire. It offers a calm and tranquil environment away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and is conducive and sensitive to supporting the diverse needs of our residents.
The Bungalow is registered to provide residential accommodation, for up to four people with Learning Disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorders and/or behaviour that challenges those around them. We pride ourselves in the ability to meet the unique needs of each person in our care. We work in partnership with them, their families and other relevant professionals; always adopting a person centred approach which identifies their individual needs and provides the appropriate care and support.
The Staff use their knowledge and experience of autism, communication and challenging behaviour to maximise the potential of all 4 individuals who reside at The Bungalow.
The Bungalow aims:
- To provide home from home comforts with each bedroom having its own en-suite shower room and space for personal belongings.
- To provide access to a safe and fully equipped garden area complete with outdoor swings and trampolines.
- To provide access to a horticultural area for growing vegetables as well as a livestock area to rear chickens. This will help the people we support to take responsibility, feel proud and reap the rewards for what they have grown and produced.
- To be committed to empowering each individual to make positive choices regarding all aspects of their care, both at present and in the future.
