Meadow Court is a supported living Unit which enables individuals to live in their own tenancy and within a community environment as an alternative to: residential care, social isolation with limited support or living with family. We support individuals to have their own accommodation, whilst having the benefit of 24 hour available staffing support with communal facilities that encourages socialisation, friendship and respect whilst individuals being able to have their own space to live in when they seek their own company, or to invite someone to be with them, in their own home.
