Grace Care - supporting all residents in reaching their true potential.
Allan House provides a high level of structured, person-centred support for adults aged 18+. Accommodation provided is eight en-suited good sized bedrooms most on the ground floor. Allan House is set in two acres of grounds; this provides a great opportunity to enable residents to undertake a variety of sport activities and enjoy relaxing in the outdoor environment. Within the gardens we have an award winning allotment where we grow vegetables and then use them for meals, creating a healthy diet chosen by residents.
Residents also benefit from a large lounge area, pleasant dining room and training kitchen, all overlooking the stunning, large garden area. These facilities are used to help residents develop skills in many areas including cooking, good house-keeping and budgeting.
The GPs, health centre, convenience store, Tesco, pub, railway station, library, church and bus stops are all within walking distance from Allan House. Where appropriate, residents are supported to access work opportunities and college courses. Allan House has its own transport, although we encourage independent travel through training as appropriate.
Residents have the opportunity to get involved in many activities outside the home e.g. swimming, basketball, sailing and outdoor pursuits. Alongside this, residents can also help organise regular day trips and holidays.

All rooms are finished to a high standard of decor but residents are encouraged to have their own furniture and pictures if they desire.

Residents are supported to use the equipment in the kitchen with supervision.
