Location

The Old Post Office is situated in a semi-rural location in the village of Haughton in Staffordshire. The house is a large well-furbished detached property, within easy walking distance of a range of local shops and amenities.

Surrounded by farmland, Haughton itself is a pleasant and thriving village situated on the A581, approximately 4 miles from the county town of Stafford. Nearby attractions include Stafford Castle and Stafford Visitors Centre.

Overview of the service

The Old Post Office is a specialist residential home for up to 7 adults with learning disabilities who may also have a dual diagnosis (including mental health problems or Autistic Spectrum Disorders) and additional complex needs.

We are able to accommodate both short-term and longer-term placements.

The home's two independent living flats are an invaluable on-site resource in this regard, whether utilised as an independent living opportunity from the outset of an individual's placement or as subsequent step-down accommodation.
