Rowan House near Brentwood is a friendly, homely residential service for people with learning disabilities and complex needs, including Angelman Syndrome.
The individuals we support may also express behaviours which others might find challenging. Situated in the pleasant Essex countryside, Rowan House has six bedrooms across two floors.
There is a nurturing, caring, positive environment with a real home from home feel. The team ensure a flexible and proactive approach and are dedicated to meeting the needs of the individuals they support. Many have worked at the home for a long period of time and are also very supportive of their colleagues as well as the people we support.
The focus is very much on inclusion and enjoying interests. Person centred goals and achievements, big and small, are always encouraged as is greater independence and choice on a daily basis. Individuals are encouraged to do as much as possible for themselves in all aspects of daily living such as cleaning and shopping, to increase confidence and support greater independence.

The staff really know people well and carry out everything we say. The staff are consistent which is key. They have a wealth of knowledge about people and they take them to their health appointments. When I visit the service they always ask to see my ID Badge, even though I have been there before. I can’t praise them enough.”Health Professional - Quote from CQC Report- June 2017
