Raphael house is supported living home with a holistic ethos for adults with learning disabilities, which has been running for over 40 years. It is our aim to provide a warm and supportive environment where tenants can live as independently and as fully as possible, and staff always maintain a sensitive awareness for the current and changing needs of each individual.
Much thought comes from the staff team, working alongside the wishes of the tenants, when finding ways in which support can best be offered, how much or little staff involvement is needed and what will be most beneficial to the individual. We try to support in a caring environment the individual growth of each tenant in a way that encourages self-fulfilment and community involvement.
The local area has many facilities, shops and transport links, which give the tenants here every chance to live as independently as possible. Many of our tenants play a large role in the local community and have a valued input in many of the shops that they work in and the cafes that they frequent. A high quality of life is aimed for on every level and ultimately all who live and work at Raphael House combine to make a unique and safe place that nine people call home.
