Situated within walking distance of Carmarthen town, The Grange offers six en-suite bedrooms, a lounge, activity room, sensory room and enclosed garden.

Led by Jill Cowdry, an award-winning manager (Learning Disability Service Manager of the Year, National Care Awards, 2018) and Positive Behavioural Management (PBM) trainer, the home has a dedicated support team all trained in Positive Behavioural Support and highly experienced in supporting individuals with a range of complex needs.

Using Active Support, the team support individuals to develop skills that enable them to enjoy greater independence, from making their breakfast and organising their bedrooms to managing their finances and using public transport.

The focus at the Grange is on placing individuals at the heart of everything they do. The support team use a range of Total Communication techniques, including Makaton and Pictorial aids to ensure individuals are given choice and control over all aspects of their lives, from choosing meals and clothes to planning daily activities and decorating their rooms. Individuals are also actively involved in how the service is run, as well as the various events held throughout the year.

At the Grange, individuals take part in a range of activities of their choice both within the home and in the community. The team pride themselves on going the extra mile to make those choices a reality, working proactively with external providers to overcome challenges and enable individuals to engage in social and leisure activities safely.

Support workers always try to find new ways in which to engage people in different activities.

The Grange is a fantastic warm, welcome service. The staff members at The Grange are dedicated to achieving the highest outcomes and the home generally has a positive vibe. All individuals are well cared for and are always appearing to engage in various activities. The home is decorated in a homely manner and is modernised and individualised.

From what I have seen and over heard, they offer facilities to ensure that the people they look after get to do what they want, when ever they want. The people have opportunity to do various activities and also have the opportunity to go on holiday with dedicated staff members that know and care for them. This is a home to be proud of that goes above and beyond the call of duty in their role as a support worker.
