Overview

At EL Marsh, we promote independence and we ensure that the people we support promote this too. We celebrate independence by treating each person as an individual, and always using a person-centered approach to meet their individual needs.

We provide residential care services to young adults with mild to severe Learning Disabilities, Mental Health issues and Autism. We not only provide accommodation and care; we also offer support for people with a range of disabilities who choose to live in their own home or supported living.

Whether it’s a few hours support a week or 24-hour care, our support is consistently of high standard and person-centered. From residential care to short breaks to  supported living, at EL Marsh each person is an individual and our No’ 1 priority!

Deciding the right care

Once you know the type of care you require, the next step is choosing the right service provider and home to meet those needs. Some key areas to consider are services, facilities, location, and environment. We think that the best way to feel make a decision and feel reassured is to visit our service(s) and meet with the service manager. This will give you the opportunity, in advance, to look around, talk to our staff  and residents and ask questions that are most important to you.

Our Residential homes are happy to arrange a trial stay to support you to decide whether our home is the right place for you. Our website provides a lot of information about our services, please feel free to contact our individual homes, where you can arrange a visit direct.

In health care, we use the term ‘transition’ to describe the process of planning, preparing and moving from children’s health care to adult health care. At EL Marsh Transition is a gradual process of change. This gradual change allows all those involved time to ensure that young person going through this change and their families are prepared to make the move to adult health care.

Majority move directly from children’s to adult services when they are aged between 17 and 18 years.

We want to make the transition as easy and smooth as possible for you and the family.
