Supported Living in the Community

Although many of our Adult residents live on-site at St Elizabeth's, we have a number of residents who live nearby in the local community.

We currently occupy and hold tenancy agreements for 9 flats at Windhill in Bishop's Stortford, all managed by the local Housing Association. Many of the residents who live here still access St Elizabeth's for either College or Day Opportunities, but feel their needs and interests are best met living in the community.

Adult residents and College learners who choose to live at Windhill do not require the 24 hour nursing support that many need at St Elizabeth's, but do require some form of supported living. Our flats at Windhill have a committed and experienced staff team who are qualified and trained to meet the needs of the particular clients they support, 24 hours of the day. 

Each resident has their own flat (with their own front door!) and are supported by staff to live independently and learn vital living skills. While there are some communal rooms and spaces, many residents are supported and encouraged to cook and clean for themselves, organise their laundry and manage day to day living expenses and errands. 

Regular transport is provided for those living at Windhill wishing to come back to St Elizabeth's each day, or wanting to access the local community. They still have access to nursing services at St Elizabeth's, but they will mostly access their local community based GP for other medical and therapy services.

In our most recent inspection, our provision at Windhill was rated Good by the Care Quality Commission. For a full report, please click here.
