Thorndene Domiciliary Agency was established to provide learning disability support services for individuals who require a safe, supportive and therapeutic living environment, which also provides opportunities to learn and self-develop. Our service looks after individuals with learning disabilities, mental health conditions and complex emotional and behavioural needs including autism.
We support people by: Working in partnership with them, and those that know them well, to create flexible services that meet their needs, whether they need a lot of support or not. Where possible, involving them in deciding who supports them so they have the opportunity to do things they like, whether meeting new friends, developing hobbies, working or volunteering. Supporting people to have the home life that they want by choosing where they want to live. Helping people to be independent by looking at their needs and supporting them to access other areas that may be of interest to them in the local community, thus supporting them to develop the skills and confidence to do things themselves where they can.
