Gledholt

32 Greenhead Road, Gledholt, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, HD1 4EZ

Gledholt is an enhanced community residential service providing outcome focused care for adults with learning disabilities, who may have behaviours that challenge and associated complex needs.

The home is divided into two distinct living areas, the main house and the coach house. The main house, which is split across three floors offers seven en-suite bedrooms, communal living areas and a kitchen on each floor to enable the residents to shop for and prepare their own meals. The coach house is a two bedroom service giving the individuals we support the option to spend time in their own space or in the main house. Externally there are gardens to the front and rear of the building with raised flower beds and outdoor seating.

We have MDT on site, consisting of psychologist, psychology assistants, occupational therapist, speech and language therapists as well as 24/7 support from the nursing team. This means that we are able to meet the changing needs of our residents as they progress through their care pathway, while ensuring their safety is maintained and their independence supported. Regular review meetings involving the resident, their family and professionals are held to review outcomes, set new goals and re-assess support levels as individuals progress.

The management and staff team have comprehensive training, including all mandatory training and bespoke training specific to the needs of the residents; this includes CIS, safeguarding, food safety, first aid, specialised intervention techniques, autism, mental health, mental capacity and record keeping.

Vocational activities and learning opportunities*

We believe that it is essential for people’s wellbeing to have purpose in their day-to-day life and to learn new skills. We have established different work projects to introduce vocational and learning activities where the people in our care can learn valuable skills and develop confidence. Service users have access to:

  • Employment projects, such as bakery, textiles and horticultural work to help deliver meaningful occupation
  • The education centre, which provides a range of ASDAN accredited courses tailored to suit individual service users’ needs, incorporating learning through sensory and academic experiences
