Essex Care Consortium – Plume Avenue
Plume Avenue is a specialist community based resource, registered to provide living accommodation and care for up to four clients with a learning disability, who have complex needs aged 18 or older. Our accommodation is a large ‘family styled’ five bedroom house with a good-sized private rear garden with patio and BBQ area.
The house is situated in Prettygate, Shrub End, within a short walking distance of all local shops and amenities, which include: a doctor’s surgery and pharmacy, newsagent, post office, supermarkets, pubs and restaurants. There is a regular bus service to Colchester town centre, Clacton and Maldon, and, where appropriate we encourage the use of public transport to enhance personal independence.
Plume Avenue is staffed according to individual needs and is overseen by a Registered Manager who is responsible for the staff team, client’s welfare in general, and the essential standards of quality and safety.
We are ideally situated for individuals who are looking to achieve greater independence. We offer a safe base to support people who need to acquire the necessary skills to make these steps. Support workers will offer daily help and encouragement. It is a small registered group home, which emphasis’s normal living, experience and social integration and yet still offers 24-hour staff support within the extensive professional framework of Essex Care Consortium Ltd. This organization offers a wealth of specialist knowledge, services and personalized care options and we believe this combination presents a unique opportunity for individuals.
