Do you have the passion and determination to make a difference in the lives of people with complex needs?
Ontario Court is a charming building in the heart of Peterborough. This residential service has been designed to support eight individuals with learning disabilities, autism and complex needs, as well as those who may have experienced previous placement breakdowns. Encouraging independent living and quality of life is at the heart of all we do, with spaces designed to provide high-quality living and support that meets the needs of every individual.
Ontario Court combines the benefits of a reconfigured period property with a purpose-built extension. The service features eight large self-contained flats, complimented by a range of communal spaces. The result is residential support that balances the need for personal space and independence with the opportunity for social interaction and communal living.
Ontario Court has been expertly designed to a very high standard, with space that is bright without being overstimulating. Flats have feature walls with pastel colours and modern furniture, while communal areas benefit from comfortable soft furnishings, thoughtful, stylish finishing touches and uplifting artwork on the walls.
Communal areas include attractive dining spaces, lounges and activities rooms, all of which are designed to encourage the people supported at Ontario Court to spend time with peers and take part in a range of activities. The main lounge features bi-fold doors that overlook the gardens.
Our Sensory Room is a specially designed space designed to stimulate or calm the senses, promoting de-escalation and/or encouraging engagement depending on their individual needs. It features lighting, bubbles, buttons, sparkling lights, laser stars, fibre optic carpets, vibrating wall bumpers, and soft seating, to calm and engage the senses.
Ontario Court is surrounded by a safe outdoor space, featuring gardens, sensory areas, outdoor seating and a nest swing.
Our residential provision is far removed from traditional models of support— with a focus on community integration, proactive development of independence and Individual Care Pathways.
Our qualified team members provide each person with the care and support that they need, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – providing a safe, positive and stimulating environment. Services are carefully designed to meet the needs of the individuals who live there —adapting provision to meet individual need, whilst ensuring staffing structures and training are built around each person.
We are proud to have committed, proactive, and experienced teams supporting hundreds of people across the UK. Together, we put the needs of the people we support at the heart of everything that we do in order to provide consistent, high-quality care.
Our recruitment process is focussed on values, ensuring that we only employ people who believe in kindness, involvement, quality of life and progress. We provide ongoing training, support and mentoring to ensure that our team have the skills required to deliver high quality care.
In addition to our highly trained support teams, we also have a specialist in-house Clinical Support Team. The Clinical Support Team is a team of specialists from different disciplines, who work closely together to deliver additional support and expertise to the people we support at Precious.
By having an in-house team, we bring together professionals and practitioners from across different sectors to deliver person-centred, holistic care which focuses on the needs of the individual. With no need to apply and wait for support from external teams, we can provide this specialist support quickly and efficiently.
At Precious, we are committed to improving the support we provide by embedding Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) throughout the organisation. At its very core, PBS is about treating people with respect, putting their needs at the centre and enabling them to achieve the quality and enjoyment of life that everyone aspires to.
PBS takes a person-centred approach to identify which areas of support will be most helpful to each individual. This includes working closely with the people we support to make sure that their choices and goals are heard, respected and actioned.
