Marion House

5 Central Avenue, Borrowash, Derby, East Midlands, DE72 3JZ

Marion House is a specialist residential home providing outcome focused care for adults with autism, who may have behaviours that challenge and associated complex needs.

Marion House is a five bed home consisting of 1 bedroom on the ground floor, 3 bedrooms on the first floor and 1 studio apartment on the second floor. All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. There is a large garden and a separate therapy/activity annex.

The home is situated in a leafy village close to local amenities. Derby City Centre is 4 miles away and Nottingham City Centre is 14 miles away. Marion House is easily accessible due to good road and rail links.

On-going assessment and high staffing levels, based on a minimum ratio of one staff member to two residents, means that we are able to meet the changing needs of residents as they progress through their care pathway; while ensuring their safety is maintained and their independence supported. Regular review meetings involving the service user, their family and professionals are held to review outcomes, set new goals and re-assess support levels as people 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, MAPA, mental health, mental capacity and record keeping.

Our residential care approach

Our services are committed to enabling each and every one of the people in our care to make a positive difference to their lives.

Our services are dedicated and structured to ensure that each person enjoys the same right to a happy and fulfilled life regardless of their level of support.

Each individual in our care begins an inclusive and personalised pathway of support from the point of access designed to support them to develop the necessary skills to experience or maintain their optimal level of independence.

We aim to develop and nurture the best ‘team around the person’ to ensure each individual’s success including ensuring friends and family are equal partners with the professionals we employ to:

  • Ensure meaningful user involvement by working inclusively, collaboratively and in genuine partnership
  • Nurture positive interpersonal relationships in order that everyone is treated with fairness, respect and dignity
  • Support individuals in fulfilling their potential and achieving a meaningful life
  • Ensure objectives for care and support and positive outcomes are at the forefront of care planning from the outset
  • Enable individuals to become full citizens in their community, regardless of their learning disability, complex needs and behaviours labelled as challenging
