The bungalow is light and spacious and has a large, well maintained outside space and barbeque patio area. There is a caring, supportive, positive atmosphere at Polwell Lane and each person living there is supported to achieve their goals and aspirations and live their life the way they want to.
There is a big focus on social and leisure activities. Individuals enjoy social evenings with family members and plan lots of activities in the home. There are plenty of options for leisure pursuits nearby including swimming, sailing, ice skating, going to the theatre, leisure centre and local parks. Polwell Lane is ideally placed for good train and bus access to Kettering, Northampton and Milton Keynes.
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.
Individuals also enjoy helping choose the décor for their home and their rooms. Some people also attend the local college to study hobbies or learn new skills.
Transition into the home is carefully planned at the individual’s own pace and we encourage other people living there to share their experiences.
Friends and family are always welcome and join events and activities as well as visiting their loved one.
