Conifers

1 Central Avenue, Borrowash, Derby, DE72 3JZ

Conifers is a specialist residential home providing outcome focused care for adults with a primary diagnosis of profound to moderate learning disability and autism with associated complex needs.

Conifers is a seven bed home situated in the leafy village of Borrowash, Derbyshire. All bedrooms are en-suite and are located on the ground floor. The individuals we support are encouraged to personalise their rooms to their own taste.

Following an individual assessment, a detailed care plan with up-to-date information, including risk assessment, is put together by our team. Our care plans are then shared with the individual, their family and carer for verification and agreement. Regular review meetings are held to review outcomes, set new goals and reassess support levels as individuals progress.

We offer a wide variety of activities for individuals to choose from and enjoy. These include community outings, group activities, sensory therapy, 1:1 activities or just relaxing indoors by listening to music.

The management and staff team have comprehensive training, including all mandatory training and bespoke training specific to the needs of the residents.

Our service is dedicated and structured to ensure that each individual enjoys the same right to a happy and fulfilled life, regardless of their level of support. Each resident begins an inclusive pathway of support which is designed to support them to develop the necessary skills to experience or maintain their optimal level of independence.
