Welcome to Neville Court
At Neville Court, we build our care and activity plans around a person, not their condition. We support and encourage service users to be happy, fulfilled and involved in their care.
Service users live across two units at Neville Court; Cannon, an all-male unit, and Bretton. Each unit is complete with a dining room and lounge and an activity room is located on the ground floor.
Our sensory garden is fully accessible to all. It has raised flower beds for potting, a patio area for barbeques throughout the summer and plenty of space for socialising.

|Service user engagement||Goals & outcomes|
The OneCare service at Neville Court provides two self-contained one bedroom flats, and a two-bedroom house just a short walk across the garden from the main home. The OneCare service can be adapted to suit the individual needs of service users based on personal taste, condition, functionality and medication regime.
This extended care pathway accommodates service users living on their own, whether they are on a journey to returning to life within the community; or seeking to remain as independent as possible whilst living with a progressive condition such as Huntington’s disease.
Supported by specialist nurse-aided care and life skills teams, service users benefit from therapy, care and engagement activities. The main home is easily accessible as required and service users are actively encouraged to take part in life in the community.
The OneCare service provides care and support to individuals living with neuro-disabilities, brain injury and stroke symptoms, mental ill-health and early on-set dementia.
As a small child Sophie underwent brain surgery for a severe uncontrolled epilepsy which led to a series of learning disabilities, mental ill-health and behavioural needs.
Over the years, Sophie was moved from placement to placement never finding the right support and was served notice from her then current care provider in December 2016 as they were also struggling to manage her behaviour.
The OneCare service at Neville Court opened early January 2017 and Sophie was able to move in.
Since entering the OneCare service Sophie’s challenging behaviours have reduced significantly and her independence has improved. In order to reduce her stress and anxiety, Sophie has weekly meetings with specialist nurses to set small but achievable targets with a consistent supportive approach.
