Grammar School House is a caring, nurturing residential service in the pleasant village of Earls Colne near Colchester providing support for individuals with learning disabilities and complex needs. Some individuals may also have additional physical disabilities. The team are also highly skilled in supporting people with epilepsy. There is a warm, positive, homely atmosphere at Grammar School. The long-standing, caring and supportive team ensure a person centred approach to support individual’s bespoke and often complex health and physical needs. They are trained in PEG feeding and how to act in the event of an individual having a severe epileptic seizure.
The home is made up of two bungalows, each with six bedrooms and is wheelchair accessible to support people with additional physical disabilities. There are also pleasant outside areas and gardens around the property. Individuals living at Grammar School are supported to achieve their goals and aspirations and to lead a full and active life as part of their local community. There is easy access to the nearby large town of Colchester with its many leisure and social activities and there are transport facilities on site to enable people to enjoy the hobbies and interests important to them. We place great importance on helping people learn new skills and to take an active interest in the running of the home with their own areas of responsibility.
This helps improve daily living skills and confidence and as greater independence is achieved we update support plans with the individual to make sure we are maximising their choices and opportunities. Some people also enjoy local work opportunities. Visits from family and friends are actively encouraged and in the summer months there are annual BBQs for all to enjoy.
