Old Elms, Gamston
Our new Supported Living service at Old Elms opens its doors in Summer 2021. The specially-designed service is set in the quiet rural location of Gamston, in the peaceful countryside between Nottingham and Lincoln.
Old Elms benefits from a setting which makes all local facilities accessible, and ensures a happy and settled home for each individual in a comfortable atmosphere. It is close to major transport links, including the A1, and is near to the small market town of Retford, and the amenities it offers.
Exceptional levels of care are our byword at Old Elms, where we support six people with autism, learning disabilities and complex needs, including behaviours of concern. The service is housed in a newly-modernised and refurbished property; all rooms within the service promote individuality and a personal space, and each one is en suite.
It is a place where people are supported to have the opportunity to continue to learn and develop new skills through an embedded approach that nurtures and encourages independence. This approach helps foster a sense of ownership and belonging in their own home – a valuable asset to individuals with complex needs. That extends to each person having their own tailored and bespoke timetable of activities, meaningful to them and created with their involvement and input in order to align with their own needs and preferences.
Communal and social living is combined with a beautiful outdoor space, whilst inside the property we create an environment which is safe, caring and responsive and enables people to take control of their everyday lives.
Recruitment: None of this can happen without the efforts of our wonderful staff. In a person-centred environment, they make a world of difference to the young adults that we support – energetic and lively young people with a zest for life. This makes for a busy and vibrant home, where there is always plenty going on. If you feel you have what it takes to be a part of the Kisimul ‘family, then we’d love to hear from you.
