Do you have the passion and determination to make a difference in the lives of people with complex needs?
Tolcarne Avenue is an Autism-specific Residential Service providing support in a nurturing and homely environment, where people’s rights, independence and choices are actively promoted.
Located in Milton Keynes, Tolcarne Avenue supports three people who are stepping down from secure units and hospitals, or who may have experienced previous placement breakdowns.
Everyone at Tolcarne Avenue has a flatlet which includes a bedroom, living room, and ensuite set across the ground and first floor. While everyone has their own personal space, Tolcarne also has a variety of communal areas and two garden/decking spaces, providing plenty of space for activities.
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.
This service is part of our tiered support model, providing a complete Transition Care Pathway from Residential to Supported Living services on the same site. For people with complex needs, or those who struggle with change, this care pathway creates a balance between familiarity and what is new and decreases anxieties around change. This is proven to facilitate smoother and more successful transitions.
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.
Tolcarne Avenue is set within the heart of the Milton Keynes community and is within easy reach of local shops, facilities, and transport links.
