At Ducks Halt, each individual we support is unique, they have their own goals, needs and interests. We work with each resident to ensure that their life is filled with activities that they enjoy, whilst also supporting them to develop their life skills to enable them to live independently. We encourage and enable the individuals we support to lead a full and happy life.
Ducks Halt is a detached bungalow in a beautiful small village in Essex, which has a couple of pubs along with a village shop and post office. Just two miles away is Walton-on-the-Naze where the residents regularly visit and make the most of the facilities in a typical seaside town. Nearby there are plenty of community facilities for individuals to access, including shops, colleges, a swimming pool and local parks. Ducks Halt has 2 vehicles for the staff to take the residents out on day trips. Clacton and Colchester are a short journey away, providing an extensive array of activities and places to visit.
Ducks Halt is homely and we support residents to personalise and decorate their room as they would like it to be. The service has relaxing living areas and a kitchen to prepare drinks, food and snacks for themselves or their visitors. There is a large garden with a seating area and space for gardening and other outdoor interests, including hosting parties.
We understand that the relationships our residents have with their family and friends are very important and integral to their well-being. Therefore we ensure that we enable the individual to stay in touch with loved ones and can facilitate home visits.
