At the Conifers...
Clients can spend weekdays attending College or various day services or work experience, and there are many weekend leisure and cultural activities. We provide transport to 'Access', our specialist Learning Resource, on our Colchester site.
At The Conifers we aim to maintain high standards of specialised care, creating a beautiful home in wonderful surroundings that offers individual support and encouragement to all our clients. Clients are offered a key to the front door and their own room.
The home is family orientated and focuses on activities that involve the families and friends of the clients such as BBQs and pool parties. The staff concentrate on each individual's personal choices and needs and these are put into a life skills activity plan. Every step is monitored so that small outcomes can become big and the goals that individuals achieve are fully recognised.
