Celebrating World Autism Awareness Week and World Autism Day in Goole is Goldcrest House as it prepares its own special celebration and open day on the 2nd of April featuring a home-made ‘Stand out for Autism’ themed cake.
Celebrating the wonderful world of autism Goldcrest House will be encouraging the whole community, and those further afield, interested to learn more about autism and its effects to visit the home and learn more by talking to professionals and expert carers in autism and those with autism themselves.
Ralph Parish, Goldcrest House Manager says: “We are constantly celebrating the wonderful world of autism but we jumped at the chance to get involved in a very special awareness raising week to encourage and demonstrate how we support those with autism to live the lives they choose. We’re looking forward to welcoming members of our community, and hopefully individuals who are keen to learn more about the support on offer for autism out there.”
During the week Goldcrest House will be launching four new services for adults with disabilities: day services, outreach, respite and supported living. The services are designed to be focused on supporting families dealing with autism, and individuals with autism, lead a fulfilled and varied life.
Ralph adds: “We recognise that our current business model of residential services doesn’t cater for all, which is why we’re offering a flexible service that could be for a, short or long term respite break, supporting you in your own environment or home, or simply offering a 9-5 daytime activity program person centred to meet your need. Whatever the need and requirements, we have the right solution to ensure everyone is happy.”
Based on Boothferry Road Goldcrest House is a centre of excellence dedicated to addressing the individual needs of adults over 18 who are on the Autistic Spectrum, or have a learning disability over 52 weeks a year; its aim is to be the UK’s quality service of choice.
