Welcome to Timaru
Timaru means a ‘place of shelter’ and the home is regarded as a favourite haven for the people who live here.
In our home we have the ability to make the people we support feel comfortable and unique as well as providing them with their specific needs.
We offer a home for life for adults with severe learning disabilities and complex restrictive behaviours, usually associated with autism, including self-injury. They may have additional needs associated with epilepsy and sensory impairments. Continuous, 24-hour, one-to-one or greater support is provided, including waking night workers. The home is registered for six adults aged from 16 to 64.
The environment is continually risk-assessed and adapted to meet the ongoing needs of each person. It allows for individual expression and a shared community life. We provide many in-house and community opportunities that enable people to develop life skills and engage in activities that they enjoy. We have 2 vehicles to use for taking service users out to the many activities they enjoy participating in such as swimming, horse-riding, visiting local shops, walks in The New forest and Fishlake Meadow,
Timaru is a large detached house on the outskirts of Romsey, close to local facilities such as shops, pub and a garden centre. Romsey is a small market town with good road links to Southampton, Winchester and the New Forest. It has a railway station with services to the South West and connections to other local main stations.
