The Laurels is a modern, luxury, well equipped home located in the leafy suburbs of Lowestoft on the Suffolk coast providing the highest standards of care and support in a very homely and comfortable environment.
The Laurels caters for people of both sexes with varying levels of ability including those with behavioural difficulties and other complex needs. Each person who lives at The Laurels chooses how they want their own room decorated and what they want in it. Entrance to the home is through the safety of electrically operated gates and the home presents itself grandly on arrival, with a pillared porch and symmetrical architecture. Each person who we support has a named key-worker(s) who will encourage, support and guide each individual to express choice and to set and accomplish personal goals.
At the Laurels we provide a relaxed approach to care and support giving each individual the time and understanding they need to achieve their goals and aspirations in life. The most positive and effective form of support is to listen to what each person wants and needs. We pride ourselves in our well-equipped sensory room of which the people that we support make full use. Many of the people we support have been supported to take voluntary work placements and some have attended college and courses at our local Aspire Centre. Each person is treated as an individual and is supported with this in mind, so some people may prefer to do more fun activities such as swimming, bowling, eating out, walking along the nearby beach, whatever the need we can cater for it.
