An Darach House

AN DARACH HOUSE is situated in the Lincolnshire village of North Scarle and is home to six adults with severe learning disabilities and challenging behaviour. Each resident has their own en-suite bedroom and share a large kitchen, dining room and lounge. The house is set close to the centre of the village and has a large landscaped garden to the rear of the property with additional double garage and games room. The village offers a traditional local pub and shop with a good bus service into Lincoln.

We aim to empower and support our residents to reach and develop their potential as individuals, by supporting and enabling each person to have as much control over their daily lives as possible. They maximise their community presence and involvement by developing their individual daily living skills, in a safe and supportive environment. The home is staffed by a highly motivated team of people who identify with the individual rather than the disability and put the individual at the forefront of our work. All staff receive regular, specialist training that focuses on our residents’ very special needs and requirements. The high staffing levels allow residents to join in many activities including organised trips and annual holidays.

We work in partnership with the individual, parents and carers, ensuring that the service is needs led and transparent; we are registered with Care Quality Commission and hold Investors in People award.

Our residents are given opportunities to continue to learn and develop new skills. They follow the ASDAN towards independence programme and attend suitable local college courses. Personal independence is at the forefront of our minds and we demonstrate this by gently supporting our residents to participate in the complete running of their home.

At An Darach House we treat every resident as an individual, and any plans of care are tailored to fully reflect personal needs and wishes. Experience has taught us that promoting individual needs causes residents to flourish and make confident decisions on how they wish to live their life.

An Darach means “Place of Oaks”.
