About Heworth Moor House
Here at Heworth Moor House, we strive to promote independence and dignity – this promise from us extends to local communities & activities too! Our Tenants benefit from great communal links, we support our tenants to access college courses to enable them to progress onto jobs, activities, and general day to day living which in turn (we feel) provides a better quality of life and a firm sense of wellbeing.
We have a bonus here at Heworth Moor House because we’re only a 10-minute walk from the city centre. We have great public transport to allow us to get anywhere in York in under 30 minutes, and we also have one of the best rail infrastructures in the country to give us that extra bit of freedom to travel anywhere!
Our tenants here at Heworth Moor House also have great links to our other supported living services here in York. We do weekly activities alongside the other houses to allow our Tenants to build meaningful relationships with people who understand the structure of supported living and who understand that we strive to teach and learn the skills needed to ultimately be independent in our lives. A few of the activities are listed here:
- Castle Howard
- Communal BBQ’s
- Scarborough beaches
- Sheffield Winter Gardens
This is simply a few! There’s a new activity every weekend supported by a full staff team across all three of the supported living services.
A home from home...
At Heworth Moor House everything we do is based on choice. The Tenants choice of activity, their choice of meals, their choice on clothing to name a few. However, it doesn’t stop there. We use a multi-agency approach to help design and collate an individual’s care plan to best support their needs. Individuals staying with us get to choose every detail that is included in this, alongside which family & friends have an input.
We cater to a wide range of needs here at Heworth Moor House, from Autism, Schizophrenia, Mild to Sever Learning Difficulties. There is nothing our staff cannot handle. Our staff team is rigorously trained in all aspects of care. We receive specialised training to deal with complex situations and needs, as well as comprehensive training on how to deescalate behaviours that may challenge.
Our team of highly skilled and trained staff will work alongside individuals to help create, maintain, and adapt a routine that best serves the individual Service User so we can help them on their road to independence. We have previously made “timetables” at Tenants request to allow them to have a visual representation of tasks that they would like to complete, and a realistic timescale to allow them to reach this goal.
