Located in Brislington, approximately one and half miles south east of Bristol City Centre, Bradbury House is a semi-detached, two-storey property plus attic conversion.
Dating in part from the 17th century, it is a Grade II listed building. The property also offers a secluded garden and car park. It is a short walk away from a Superstore as well as the Brislington High Street and Retail Park.
In addition to our vehicles, there are many bus routes that pass nearby, easily connecting the home to the city as a whole.
Bradbury House consists of two properties under one Registration, Bradbury House and Number 13.
The main building, Bradbury House, caters to individuals with Learning Difficulties and Autism. Most of the current residents at Bradbury House have a fairly high level of dependency and communication difficulties, requiring some degree of staff support for many aspects of their lives.
Number 13 is a separate, small semi-detached house on the same site, and caters to with Leaning Difficulties and Mental Health needs.
Many of the Residents have previously lived in long-stay institutions and display behaviours in accordance with this type of environment. We strive to create a homely environment for all of our residents and to promote independence and develop skills wherever possible. Most of the residents at Bradbury House have lived there a long time and would certainly consider it their home.
The home is staffed 24/7 365 days a year, and our well trained staff provide a full range of support, from an individuals basic needs, to support with work or a fun day out. Each resident has a carefully crafted, person-centred timetable that gives them a good mix of fun, relaxation and skill development.
These take full advantage of our onsite workshop, called the Bradbury House Hub. Here the Staff team coordinate interactive activities that vary from week to week for the Service Users to engage in. The Bradbury House Hub houses a fully equipped kitchen and a large comfortable space full of arts and crafts supplies.
Bradbury House works closely with Cypress Lodge, another Bradbury House Ltd home located nearby. Residents of both sites know each other and often hold joint events, while the staff and management support one another.
The home also has close ties to the Bendalls Farm Day Care service that Bradbury House Ltd. offer, with many residents regularly attending groups such as Animal Care, IT, Walking and Cooking.
