Transitioning people with learning disabilities, autism and complex needs to living in their own accommodation takes great care. Hesley Group’s purpose-built new service at Dragonby Road, Scunthorpe, provides a stepping stone for successful transition.

Dragonby Road homeAll accommodation is self-contained, creating the sense of calm which is essential to help people with complex needs to reach their full potential.

By focusing on the needs of the individual, we ensure that people moving from hospital to their own space do so in a relaxed, safe, yet stimulating environment.

The service has been specifically designed to support people discharged from hospital, in line with the Transforming Care agenda. People living here will benefit from:

Dragonby Road home- one of six individual apartments

- a single person, ground floor accommodation with private gardens, affording easy access to local amenities

- a wide range of activities, which will enrich the lives of those living within Dragonby Road

- home from home, with their own front door, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen/diner and lounge. Occupants are encouraged to personalise their apartments to provide as relaxed an atmosphere as possible

- being ideally located in the small town of Scunthorpe, within reach of a wide range of local facilities, and where people are supported to take an active part in local life

By focusing on the needs of the individual, their needs, abilities and aspirations, everyone at Dragonby Road will have the opportunity to maximise their potential, offering a progressive route to greater independence and quality of life.
