Orchid House

Orchid House is our new specialist service unit with 24 hour regulated care and support.  The home is specifically designed to support young adults with learning disabilities, autism mental and health needs. Orchid House provides a home for six adults of either sex seeking to improve their independent living skills who will be encouraged to aim to move on to more independent forms of living. There are three good sized bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms on the ground floor, suitable for individuals with moderate mobility issues. However, the ground floor is not wheelchair accessible. This family-sized home is in the thriving town of Kempston, Bedford and is situated close to local amenities including shops, recreational facilities, parks, community centres, doctor's surgeries and a library. It is also within reach of Bedford town centre offering it’s own basket of educational, leisure and other facilities. Bus routes are on the doorstep allowing access to public transport.

Orchid House offers an innovative model of residence and support. People using the service benefit from the security of an assured tenancy agreement coupled with 24 hours regulated specialist care and support.

As an individualised service, the home promotes the concept of person-centred care, adopting the ethos of freedom and choice and promoting independence by supporting transition. To this end, we can provide young people with tenancies so that they have greater control over their own spaces and develop skills of independence including managing their accommodation and finances within the context of a supportive environment.

Orchid House has recently been registered with CQC and found to be meeting all regulatory requirements. Ratings for this service will only be available after the first inspection by CQC.
