Set in a quiet residential area of North Wembley, Langham Gardens is a six bedroom supported living project, which provides 24 hour support for individuals on the Autism Spectrum.
All bedrooms have en-suite facilities and the property has been adapted to take account of the needs of individuals on the Autism Spectrum.
The residents currently consist of five young men, whose average age is 29 years. Whilst autism is the primary diagnosis, individuals may also present with additional complex needs such as mental health difficulties and/or learning disabilities.
We provide 24 hour supported living and transition support tailored to meet individual needs. Before anyone moves into Langham Gardens a comprehensive transition plan is drawn up and agreed by the individual, their parent(s), care managers and any significant person who may understand the individual’s needs best and who can support development and risk management plans.
Each person has an individually designed structured learning programme which works alongside a positive support plan with the aim of enhancing the social, psychological, sensory and learning needs of each individual. At the heart of each support plan is a respect for the individuals’ autism requirements. There will always be staff around who understand, so that each person is given lots of opportunity to positively and safely access their community and do the things they enjoy. Each individual is enabled to build a strong foundation for their future, empowering them to live more independent and fulfilled lives.
The staff team comprises of a Supported Living Manager, one Deputy Manager and fourteen Support Workers, four of whom are Waking Night. Our staff are fully trained to support individuals on the Autism Spectrum with complex needs. We provide a range of statutory and specialist training to ensure that the individuals we support have the optimum opportunity to grow and live as independently as possible within their own potential.
An Autism Consultant working alongside our Therapeutic Support Service supports the Team to provide specialist advice, reflective practice and training, as well as hands-on support.
We aim to work closely with Care Managers and other professionals involved in the care and support of those living at Langham Gardens. We are particularly keen to involve parents and value the expert knowledge that only a mum, dad or sibling can provide.
