Overview Of Oster House

Oster House is a Supported Living Plus Service in the vibrant community of St Albans, which supports young people and adults (16-65 year olds) with complex needs to become significantly more independent within the community.

Oster House supports up to 15 individuals with the following needs:

  • Learning Disabilities
  • Autism
  • Behaviours which may be as challenging
  • May be stepping down from secure settings and may have experienced previous placement breakdowns

Each individual is provided with their own spacious flat alongside access to the internal and external communal spaces.

Oster House balances the opportunity for independence development with social integration and is ideal for individuals who may not yet be quite ready for full supported living.

Sarah’s fantastic journey from hospital through to full independent living in her own flat in Hemel Hempstead. Sarah, one of the individuals Precious Homes supported to move from a secure unit and into the community just under three years ago, received her last ever support session at the end of November 2016.

I could not have imagined I would be living on my own, in my own flat, my Support Workers have given me the confidence to make this happen – Person Supported – Oster House


Our Multi-Disciplinary Team

Input from our in-house Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) can be provided on top of a person’s support when people we support require further therapeutic and behavioural support and intervention. This is an additional resource for people who have had input and cost agreed with the person supported and/or their funding authority.

Input can range from rehabilitative support for someone in crisis; support for complex assessments and transitions; resolving and reducing emotional and behavioural issues through positive behaviour support approaches; observing, training and mentoring support teams; right through to simply being on hand to give extra advice and guidance to our support teams.

Our specialised and highly qualified MDT includes Psychology and Speech and Language Therapy (SALT). We also work closely alongside external MDT partners including Behavioural Specialists, Psychiatry, Occupational Therapy, dieticians and fitness experts.

The Support workers always put my relative at the centre of any planning, discussions and decisions on their care needs – Relative – Oster House
