Type of property
The Avenue is a large detached house in the heart of Taunton, where people are supported to live happy and independent lives.
The house has four large, en-suite bedrooms, and communal areas including a living room, dining room, kitchen and laundry room. Each en-suite has a toilet, sink, bath and over-bath shower. Outside there’s a garden that everyone can access and enjoy.
When you choose supported living, you’re choosing to live independently, safe and secure behind your own front door. There’s peace of mind in knowing the Lifeways team is on-hand, providing tailored support that helps people to lead more fulfilling lives, surrounded by like-minded people.
Living at this service
Life at The Avenue is suitable for people with learning disabilities or autism. We are ready to welcome a man aged over 40 to join the three men currently living here. This service is perfect for someone who likes to spend time with others but also has their own space in a quiet environment.
The men here enjoy lots of different activities and interests, including watching television, gaming and cooking. They also love to get out into the community – going to lunch, going for walks and trips to the coast are firm favourites.
