In Humberston we have residential and supported living services.
Garden Cottage has four self-contained apartments and the team is on hand to provide support with independent living skills as well as enjoying activities at home and in the community.
Humberston is a specialist residential service for adults with a Learning Disability who may have dual diagnoses and associated complex needs. The service has 8 en-suite bedrooms and provides twenty-four-hour support. The service has multiple communal lounges, kitchen and dining areas and large outside space with a garden area. There is a shared bathroom on the ground floor, as well as a shared bathroom upstairs in addition to the ensuite shower rooms. People we support also have access to a quiet communal lounge where they can use the computer or enjoy in-house activities.
All colleagues are NAPPI (Non Abusive Physical and Psychological Interventions) trained and use the NAPPI red and green scale to maintain positive influence on each service user, with a view to minimising the level and frequency of challenging behaviour. People we support may have spent long periods of time in a hospital setting or may have additional complex needs including sensory impairments and communication difficulties.
The people we support enjoy the wide range of attractions that Lincoln has to offer such as Ark Wildlife Park, and Belvoir Castle. There are excellent transport links with the service being close to a main bus route as well as the A46.
