St Luke’s Trust is a supported living home located in a beautiful rural setting by the Kennet and Avon Canal. It is within walking distance of the local pub, train station and bus stops (with regular service to the nearby towns such as Newbury and Reading). For those who prefer smaller, less busy shopping centres, Theale, Thatcham and Tadley are also conveniently situated just a short ride away. The extensive grounds and nearby countryside ensure a plentiful supply of walks for all, from short strolls to longer hikes.
Individuals may be referred from the family home, residential or supported living homes. Independent tenancies and self referrals are also welcomed. Care management involvement is required.
St Luke’s Lodge
St Luke’s Lodge is a seven bedroom large house that is considered the main building of St Luke’s Trust. It provides an independent living environment for tenants who want to build upon their independence skills whilst feeling confident that staff are always there to offer support. Tenants here are keen to improve on skills in all areas of their lives, and this level of care is tailored to each individual. St Luke’s Lodge can accomodate those with mobility issues, and all walls are wide enough for wheelchair users.
Lyndale is a four bed roomed house adjacent to the main building that provides people with the opportunity to further increase their independence skills whilst remaining in close proximity to staff should the need arise. The open plan nature of the building lends itself to increased opportunities for social interaction between tenants in the home. The home has one bedroom downstairs and three bedrooms upstairs. Due to the layout of the rooms, this house would not be suitable for anyone with mobility issues.
We currently have two Day Service members of St Luke’s Trust. They use our services during the weeks and our Day Service centre is a seperate outbuilding in the garden. This provides a calming, peaceful environment in which they can engage in many different activities that they enjoy. It allows them the space and opportunities to make decisions about what they would like to learn, and we always give them the time and support that they need to do so at their own pace. They have the freedom to explore our grounds with our staff team, and every aspect of their care is tailored to individual needs and interests.
There are many activities on site as well as off site for our Day Service users, and all service users can make the most of these opportunities.
We encourage all individuals to try new activities, but of course each person has the time and support to learn at their own pace. We can tailor all care to an individual, and give them as much support as they would like and in specific areas of need.
