Our Napier Day Service in Rochester has a positive track record of supporting people aged 16+ with a learning disability to learn new skills and be part of their community.
We offer an inclusive, safe and engaging environment and welcome people to the Day Service weekdays, evenings and weekends. Transport can be provided, subject to availability.
The facilities in our specifically-adapted building include a Snoezelen sensory room, accessible bathrooms and a sensory garden. There are ceiling track hoists throughout the building.
In addition to our Day Service, Napier Respite provides respite accommodation for people with learning difficulties seven days a week, 365 days a year.
For people interested in coming to Respite or Day Service, we offer introductory visits when they can come and have something to eat, meet the team and have a look round.
Melanie Payne joined the Enable team in September 2020 as the Senior Service Manager for Napier Day Service and Respite.
Once our care staff have successfully completed a three-month probation they have the option to move on to a QCF Level 2 or 3 qualification and above in health and social care.
We supply training and support to Level 5 and upwards within Agincare, with room for growth and career progression. As well as regular reviews and supervisions we carry out mandatory annual and two-year refresher training, plus specialist training.
