Overview Of Roman House
Roman House is a bespoke and spacious residential service designed to support up to 6 adults (18-65 year olds) with ASC and other associated needs to develop the skills and confidence necessary to lead a life of greater independence and choice.
The service consists of 6 autism friendly ground floor flats alongside a variety of communal internal and external areas. The flat options provide variety to meet individual needs, including flats with and without kitchens and are each tailored to reduce anxiety and increase independence.
Roman House is part of a three-tiered Residential and Supported Living service in Bletchley, Milton Keynes.
Our service model provides individuals with a complete Transition Care Pathway from Residential to Supported Living services on the same site, with the aim to move onto more independent living in the community over time.
For individuals with complex needs, this care pathway creates a balance between new and familiar and decreases anxieties around change. This has proven to facilitate smooth and successful transitions.
Roman House supports individuals with the following needs:
- Learning disabilities
- Behaviours that may be described as challenging
- Young people in transition
- Individuals who are stepping down from secure settings and who may have experienced previous placement breakdowns
Individuals are welcomed into either Roman House, Fenny Mews or Stratford View and can join the service most suited to their support needs.
Roman House has been designed based on the needs of adults with ASC including the need for large, low-arousal spaces and opportunities for integration alongside time and space away from others. It provides the variety and volume of different spaces needed to reduce anxiety levels of individuals being supported and to allow efficient de-escalation and redirection of potential and actual behaviour which may be described as challenging.
Similarly, it enables individuals to develop significantly greater independent and daily living skills including cooking, cleaning and domestic skills within a safe and homely environment.
Key Design Features:
- 6 spacious flats all including bedroom, living room and dining space and ensuite facilities
- 4 of the flats include their own kitchens aimed to increase independence development
- 4 of the flats provide separate entrances in addition to main entrance access and separate gardens for individuals who may at times find it difficult to integrate with others
- Large communal living room and large dining room each with high ceilings and low arousal finishes and furnishings
- Large communal kitchen which is used to increase independent living skills
- Spacious communal sensory garden including hot tub, sunken trampoline, double-swing, flower beds, allotment area and two patio areas
Roman House benefits from close community links, excellent transport links to Milton Keynes Centre and further afield and a team with extensive knowledge of the local area.
The service is within easy access of local shops, sports facilities, the ‘Groovy Gecko Disco’, restaurants and health services. Many individuals we support also enjoy peaceful walks through the grounds of the nearby Bletchley Park and the many waterways and country walks surrounding Roman 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.
Referrals & Contacts
We provide a rapid response to referrals and will normally arrange a professional assessment within a few days of your call.
A full and detailed pre-admission assessment is always carried out, free of charge and without obligation, by our highly experienced team prior to a placement offering being made. This values the unique and complex needs of each person and forms the basis of the individuals support plans if they move into the service.
