Care for People with Autism and Complex Needs
VSA has now included Rowanlea Cottage into our specialist programme of Housing with Support. The cottage can accommodate two adults with autism or other complex learning disabilities and forms part of the Linn Moor campus as a satellite unit; sitting in the grounds of VSA’s Easter Anguston Farm. Utilising the same highly trained staff allows the programme adopted in Rowanlea House to be replicated, ensuring that the adults residing in Rowanlea Cottage can access all the resources and supports available at Linn Moor.
This approach to care in the community for people with autism and complex needs is ideal for individuals who demonstrate an ability and willingness to learn and develop their skills further but who may struggle with more conventional adult placement situations or larger group living environments.
