We care about our outstanding services, both in community care and supported living,
where people choose the place they live and how they share their accommodation
At Larkstone Supported Living in Devon, our aim is to make a daily difference to the lives of people whom we support. We are able to offer outreach, respite and short break services for individuals with a single or multiple diagnosis of learning disability, autism, mental health needs, acquired brain injury and physical disabilities. We are highly skilled in being able to support individuals with complex and challenging needs in order to improve outcomes. Our experienced management team are able to complete detailed risk assessments and support plans and work closely with the individual, their families and professionals in order to enhance well-being.
We have a variety of independent living flats, and bedsits in both Ilfracombe and Bideford, with the benefit of both properties having amazing sea views and a countryside feel, whilst being close to local amenities. Some of the accommodation units have self-contained facilities whilst others have shared kitchens, although they all have the benefit of their own en-suite facilities. Support is tailored to individual needs and circumstances, with an emphasis on independent living, increasing skills and promoting personal autonomy. We have a daily activities programme, workshops and work training programme. Activities include the use of community resources such as access to leisure centres for Pilates classes or fitness sessions, nature walks and photography, arts and crafts, fishing, painting and decorating, woodwork and pottery. Some may be able to go to work, while others enjoy work experience and socialise by playing a game of pool or meeting friends for coffee in one of the shared kitchen areas.
In everything we do, we are committed to maximising independence and opportunity in the lives of our service users. Our person-centred approach provides bespoke, individualised support, focused on empowering each person we work with to achieve their full potential and enjoy the best possible quality of life.

“I was made to feel very welcome when I visited the service, and was impressed at the homeliness and ‘atmosphere’ of the home, it felt positive and friendly. The positive support and input from yourself and your team enabled us all to ensure that our client was at the centre of our discussions and that his needs were at all times paramount.

I would like to thank you and your team for welcoming me yesterday.
It has been very informative for me and I had the opportunity to learn and practice so much. I really appreciated how friendly you all were. Although I was initially quite nervous due to having limited experience with PMLD population, you and the rest of the team eased me in and showed me how you care for all your residents.
I also noticed how personalised care can be delivered in such a respectful manner in a residential setting. It was really inspirational to see how all your staff work with residents in such a caring way and the amount of knowledge they have about the specific needs of every individual. Within a short period of time, I was able to observe a professional, friendly and caring attitude from all the staff. This clearly makes all the residents feel at home and at ease.
Thank you so much for allowing me to practice key nursing skills whilst providing guidance. It has been a really great day for me.
