The Larches is a 5-bed home situated in a private road in the town of Stowmarket, Suffolk.
We focus on dietary management, weight management, mild to moderate behavioural challenges associated with PWS, mild to moderate learning disabilities, incontinence and some of the mobility difficulties (not including wheelchair dependency) associated with obesity. Our over-riding principle is to promote as much independence as each individual can achieve within a small friendly home.
Due to the nature of PWS, the food intake for residents is managed in relation to calories, and in accordance with the current guidelines provided by the Prader-Willi Syndrome Association and other medical professionals. This is explained to all potential residents, their families, care managers, advocates, friends and others who express an interest in our service. Individual medical advice will always be followed for each resident where applicable.
