About Gilburn

Gilburn comprises of four self-contained one-bedroom flats in the main house, all of which contain an open plan lounge/kitchen/diner and a large double bedroom with ensuite wet room. All flats have been fully personalised to reflect the personality of their occupants.

In addition to the flats, Gilburn also has three self-contained one-bedroom bungalows within the grounds. Bungalows contain a communal lounge, large self-contained activity room with a kitchenette, and WC. To the outside there are private gardens used for social and therapeutic activities.

Our support team at Gilburn provide a strong person-centered approach to all the individuals who use the service. This is demonstrated in the care received, the quality of individual support plans and the outcomes that have already been achieved for those currently in our service and those who have moved on to more independent living.

Our service users are encouraged to make decisions around their own care and support, which is something we are embedding into the culture of the service. Service users have been encouraged to openly express what they feel would make Gilburn a better place for them and enable their progress to an independent living option.
