Goldcrest House, the centre for adult Autistic Spectrum Disorder and learning disabilities, will be launching a community help programme in Goole during National Care Home Open Day this Friday for people who just need a little bit of help to get those vital jobs done.


The specialist autism support and care provided at Goldcrest House tackles the eventual hope that most residents will achieve independent and fulfilling lives through integration into every day society. Aiding this and supporting residents the care home’s doors will be open to anyone interested in learning more about the specialist work they do, whilst sampling the home’s hospitality of tea and cake.


From simple domestic jobs, to more challenging skilful tasks, a handful of enthusiastic and capable residents will be taking part in the programme which offers their skills and help out in the local community. From cleaning cars to walking dogs and helping out with the weekly shop,  impacting positively on someone in need will benefit all involved.


Eileen Smale, the programme creator says: “Our work at Goldcrest House is all about addressing autism and helping our residents work through the effects working towards a fulfilled and empowered life. We came up with the idea after a discussion with our residents and a significant amount thought it would be a fantastic idea to help others.”


She continues: “We really do hope people take us up on the offer and visit us to learn more; we like nothing more than helping those within our own community thrive.”


To learn more and receive help please contact Eileen Smale at Goldcrest House on 01405 763607 9-5pm Monday to Friday.


Based on Boothferry Road Goldcrest House is a centre of excellence dedicated to addressing the individual needs of adults over 18 affected by Autistic Spectrum Disorder and learning difficulties. It is a residential home that provides long-term integrated specialist day and residential care to meet the varied needs of those who access the service 52 weeks a year; its aim is to be the UK’s autism care service of choice.
