Park Lodge provides specialist support for up to seven adults who have learning disabilities, autism and challenging behaviour.
Our person-centred approach ensures that people are supported to develop the skills they need to live as independently as possible.
We treat every individual with respect and dignity and actively encourage people to be involved with the decision making in their home.
At Park Lodge, people are supported to take part in an extensive range of leisure and recreational activities that are very much based on the individual’s choice and interests. These include day trips all over Scotland, Edinburgh Zoo, Glasgow, St Andrews and Aviemore. People can also take part in Karaoke, giant board games, dancing, baking and listening to music. Visits to family and friends are always encouraged. Every year there is a local Gala and we often take part with a home baking stall. Birthdays and special events at Park Lodge are celebrated and there are also Halloween and Christmas parties which are always great fun.
We have close working relationships with the community learning disability team, SALT, Community Learning Disability Nurses, GPs and Dieticians.
Meal times are an important part of the day at Park Lodge. Our experienced catering staff prepare a varied menu of fresh home-cooked food every day, and we cater for individual likes and dislikes from a cultural, religious or choice perspective.
