Leading Lives Short Break - Stowmarket

General Details

Our small short break unit in Stowmarket (within walking distance of the town centre) has specialist facilities and equipment to cater for the needs of people with physical and multiple disabilities. Our experienced team understands and responds sensitively to people to ensure all needs are met.

All bedrooms have a TV and DVD player. We also have a spa bath with hoist which you can use any time to unwind during your stay.

Our lounge and kitchen/dining areas are comfortable, practical and stylish and allows social opportunities as well as the chance to get away from it all in the relaxing garden and summer house.

The safe, supported environment enables customers to make their own choices about what they want to do and activities they would like to take part in – from the varied daytime activities at the local community hub, to exploring the local attractions with a friendly and caring support worker.

Leading Lives provides a range of high-quality respite care and short break options in Suffolk for people with learning disabilities, autism and complex needs, as well as the elderly and people with dementia.
