ABOUT LOCAL CARE HOME - 1 SHERRINGHAM AVENUE
At 1 Sheringham Avenue we support five young adults who are all on the autistic spectrum either at the high functioning end or have Asperger Syndrome. The service is designed for people that need an intense support package to support them to manage areas of their life that they are finding difficult, possibly due to their autism or mental health difficulties. This intense support package is also designed to develop skills so that individuals can move towards living more independently if they wish.
The service is in a quiet residential area of Oakwood in North London. This area has very good transport links to central London and local shops and facilities.
The knowledgeable and experienced staff team will work with individuals for a fixed period of intense support, typically from 18 months to two years, with the aim of equipping them with the necessary skills to move into one of our more independent homes or their own home. Service users are supported to continue to access education through our links with local colleges, and to seek employment.
Staff will use our creative training programmes for supporting service users with developing the skills required for independent living such as budgeting, maintaining good health, personal safety and managing their household responsibilities. The staff team are also able to work with individuals who present with complex behaviours in a proactive way, supporting these individuals to develop and use personal coping strategies necessary for independent living.
