Acorn Avenue is a three-bed residential home in Halstead, Essex. The bungalow is based in a quiet residential close, accessible to Blamsters Farm, which has a number of residential and supported living homes on site.
The home has a communal lounge and kitchen. There are two en-suite shower rooms and a communal bathroom. There is a separate enclosed garden and patio area.
The bungalow is staffed 24 hours a day, including night staff. The staff team have varied skills; some have had years of experience and some are just starting out. The one thing we all have in common is giving the best care in a person-centred way.
The home has been registered with the CQC and is awaiting inspection.
There are plenty of things to do in Halstead with lots of open space with fields and forests to walk in. Local people are known for their active participation in keeping the town green; there is a committee that works most weekends planting new flowers and keeping it clean.
The town has a small high street with a range of shops to suit most people’s wants. There is a swimming pool just a 15-minute walk away.
Just a 10-minute drive down the road is a cinema, bowling alley, Freeport shopping village, nature reserve with high ropes and a large range of pubs and restaurants. Our residents enjoy playing pool, social clubs, shopping, dining out, sensory-based activities and much more. There are also local woods which we like exploring.
At Acorn Avenue, we often go for days out; this includes pub lunch trips, beach days, crazy golf and a picnic. Anything that is fun, the people who live here will want to do it. We also arrange holidays for each individual every year of their choice.
TLC will often put on event days, including Easter fetes, Halloween and Christmas parties, summer BBQs and much more.
