Elston House is an 8 bed specialist residential service for adults with autism and who may present with behaviours that challenge. We aim to provide a safe, comfortable and effective care environment for those in our care, promoting independence and community integration.

Person-centred planning is at the heart of everything we do, based on each person’s specific needs. We understand that consistency and continuity of care is important for the individuals we care for.

Elston House has six en-suite bedrooms in the main part of the house and a two bedroom apartment, which has its own kitchen, living and dining space to promote more independent living. The main part of the house has a lounge, dining room, activity & computer room and a sensory room, as well as a spacious kitchen where individuals are encouraged to practice their daily living skills.

The home is located in the small rural village of Elston, yet Lincoln, Newark and Nottingham are not far away. Elston House has extensive grounds that cover approximately five acres which includes an enclosed garden and managed woodlands.

As part of our care pathway, we enable each individual to build upon their skills to achieve further independence, self-advocacy and confidence, leading to a better quality of life. The team supports each individual to create person-centred activity planners and develop daily living skills both inside the home and out in the community. The integrated multi-disciplinary team (MDT) consists of occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, psychology and psychiatry. Our staff use least restrictive practice approaches and are trained in specialised intervention techniques and sensory integration strategies.

We understand that the relationships our residents have with their family and friends are very important and integral to their wellbeing. Therefore, we ensure that we enable the individual to stay in touch with loved ones and can facilitate home visits.
