Les Amis’ main aim is to provide care and support in residential settings to adults with learning disabilities. They offer homely environments in which people are free to express themselves and make choices by gaining skills which enable them to participate and contribute to their local community as equal and valued members.
Respite services are provided for adults with learning disabilities at Five Oaks in two areas. The Lodge - a service for those more able or the younger of the client group giving a total of 6 bedrooms in all, and the Garden Flat, providing 2 rooms that provide respite facilities for adults with profound physical disabilities, in addition to learning disabilities.
Respite is provided in three key areas:
a. As a transition to permanent accommodation within other Les Amis services
b. In the event of an emergency within the home or within the lives of either service user or carer, and
c. As a means to social inclusion for those living with carers in an isolated setting. They currently provide respite to approximately 30 individuals and their families, with a considerable number of others currently undergoing the referral process.
