We encourage and enable the individuals we support to lead a full and happy life. We work with them to ensure they have more choice and control in their lives. We find out their strengths, abilities and preferences so that the care provided can be as person-centred and meaningful to each individual as possible.
Dene Brook is split into 7 different living units enabling individuals to live either on their own or in small groups. We have two 3-bed units, two 2-bed units and three 1-bed units, one of which is located in the grounds of Dene Brook and has its own garden and front door. Each of the units has a lounge, kitchen and dining facilities and the shared units all have en-suite toilets with a shared bathroom. In addition, we also have an activity room, laundry room and a sensory room for all residents to access. Externally we have a patio area and an extensive grassed garden with plenty of space for playing games/sports and a seating area allowing for summer entertaining.
Dene Brook is located in Dalton Parva, a lovely village in the suburbs of Rotherham. At the end of the road, there are buses that take you direct to either Rotherham or Sheffield where there is an abundance of community facilities that you would expect from a major town or city. Locally in the village, we are not short on things to do, there are local shops, pubs, cafes and some beautiful countryside. The residents are encouraged to be involved in the local community as much or as little as they wish to be.
In conjunction with the other local Cygnet residential services, we have some great projects that residents can attend regularly including bakery and textiles. In addition to that, residents can attend the education centre, providing AQA accredited courses for individuals.
