West Avenue

West Avenue

West Avenue provides dedicated, individualised care and support in an intimate setting, with accommodation for up to three adults with learning difficulties and complex needs.

A well-equipped and homely bungalow, Accord’s West Avenue scheme is located in Castle Bromwich, Birmingham. With local shops and amenities close by, residents have regular opportunities to put life skills into practice and feel an active, included part of the local community. A shared lounge, dining room and kitchen mean residents have privacy when wanted but regular important opportunities to develop domestic and social skills. The Snoezelen sensory room and garden are multi-sensory environments, offering different smells, textures, sounds and sights to promote relaxation and stimulate mental engagement and communication skills. Levels of support are offered flexibly and in line with the person’s individual needs, maximising their sense of dignity, respect and individuality.
