Essex Care Consortium – Marks Tey
Essex Care Consortium: Marks Tey is a specialist resource registered to provide living accommodation and care for up to 13 clients with learning disabilities who have complex needs, aged 18 or over - current clients are aged from their late teens to mid forties.
The Laurels and The Vines offer a great variety of activities and opportunities and clients attend our Daycentre - Access, external Daycentres, college and work experience. Evening and weekend activities are arranged in small groups or on an individual basis and the two homes frequently socialise together. Clients can attend evening classes, participate in religious services of their choice, join social clubs or other places of interest and are encouraged to pursue their own interests with staff support if necessary.
They enjoy our own and local facilities and spaces. Wii and Wiifits; organised house entertainments, BBQs, cricket, football, table-tennis, rounders, theatre trips, picnics in the local park, meals out, the cinema, bowling and swimming, the pub, shopping locally or trips to town, our outdoor pool at the main site, day trips to the sea and countryside and holidays abroad.
We are situated close to main line trains and bus routes, and, where appropriate, we encourage the use of public transport to promote independence and build on the individual’s skills. Each bungalow has it’s own ‘people carrier’ for clients who need support with transport.
