Type of property
Twitch Farm is a bungalow where people are supported to live independent lives.
The house is split into two dwelling areas with separate bathrooms, bedrooms, lounge and dining areas, hallways and external doors. The only communal area is the kitchen and outdoor space which is a good-sized garden with greenhouse, summer house and patio area.
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 Twitch Farm is suitable for people with learning disabilities, brain injuries, physical disabilities, autism or mental health conditions.
The bungalow has a very relaxed feeling and is ready to welcome someone who likes a relaxed and quiet environment, would like to go out on group trips or independently and who would like to access all the community and surrounding areas have to offer. Whoever moves in will be supported to build on their interests and skills both in the community and the home.
