Park House is a highly adapted specialist residential service for people with learning disabilities, mental health needs who may have autism or Asperger syndrome and other complex needs.
Park House provides purpose-built residential support at the heart of the local community, in Crouch End in the London Borough of Haringey, North London.
The service is ideal for those stepping down from hospital services, or transitioning from residential schools, who require a robust service due to their challenging and complex needs.
Park House has capacity for six residents, meaning that each service user benefits from a high level of support.
All of the studio rooms are fully furnished with double beds, en-suite bathrooms and kitchenette facilities which provide service users with a rehabilitative environment.
The two lounges, large kitchen and activity room in the garden offer additional communal space and opportunities for skill building.
There is also a basement flat with en-suite bathroom, double bedroom, separate lounge/diner and small kitchen. This supports people to build living skills and move on to full independence in the future.
Local education centres and leisure facilities are within walking distance and the area has good public transport links, ensuring everyone can participate fully within the local community.
