Small care homes

Yarrow’s shared care package supports people to live like any other citizen – a far cry from the past when many individuals with learning disabilities were expected to endure aspects of institutionalised living. Our care homes never exceed more than six individuals sharing, with most homes occupying less than four people, and each house has an emphasis on sensory experiences – for example, the living room may be differentiated from a kitchen by a different door handle or wall surface. Our biggest focus, however, is on designing opportunities to meet the individual aspirations and support needs of each person through Person Centred Planning. Indeed, each person is assigned a key worker to work out an individual’s goals and to lead the rest of the team on behalf of each users to guarantee consistency of approach.
