Welcome to Adult Care at St Elizabeth's

Elena Conservatory

St Elizabeth’s Adult Residential Care offers a nationally renowned centre of excellence in the care of people with complex neurological and other conditions caused or complicated by epilepsy, often with other associated disabilities. Our intensive health and therapeutic support services are a key feature of the provision at St Elizabeth’s.

Adult Services can also offer planned or emergency respite care admissions when appropriate. All respite clients receive a full assessment of need and are able to access our wide range of social and leisure opportunities.

The ethos of the organisation has a strong sense of care and compassion for people with learning disabilities, giving a high profile to supporting and enabling people to develop their skills and participate in meaningful activities and work that reflects their abilities, wishes and needs.

St Elizabeth’s Day Activities and Social Enterprises provide people with a wide range of stimulating learning, leisure, social and vocational opportunities to meet their needs, interests and aspirations. These include physical activities, such as horse-riding, trampolining, music, drama, arts and crafts, therapeutic multisensory experiences and the opportunity for clients to learn or further develop IT skills.

As well as enjoying day and evening/weekend activities on site, the Centre has a fleet of vehicles to enable residents to have regular access to facilities and events in the local community.

St Elizabeth’s also has four Social Enterprises where residents (and College learners) can participate at a level that suits them. Ashvale and The Orchard Project offer experience in organic horticulture, growing and selling fruit, flowers and vegetables. The Drawing Room produces award winning ceramics, paintings and prints. The Jewellery Project makes and sells attractive jewellery in our own High Street shop/gallery in Bishop’s Stortford. Each social enterprise offers incentive payments to those who attend, and at Ashvale the opportunity to work towards a City & Guilds qualification.

Our popular day activities and social enterprises are also available to people who are living in the community who wish to participate as day clients, or those who are visiting St Elizabeth’s for respite care.
