Here at Sandown Road in Billingham we provide 24-hour care and support for people with learning and physical disabilities, autism and other complex care needs. We aim to ensure that this is not just a place to live, but is a home, and the people living here are encouraged and enabled to make their own choices and decisions in as many aspects of their lives as possible.
The needs of the person using the service are paramount in the design and delivery of the support, which is developed on an individually assessed basis with each person and their families to make sure that the service we provide is based on the needs and wishes of each person. We place particular emphasis on promoting independence and encouraging choice, and enabling people to achieve as high a level of personal fulfilment as possible.
Training and development of the people who work for SJOG are key priorities to ensure service delivery is of the highest standard. There are values that we uphold in all that we do to make sure we treat people with Hospitality, Compassion and Respect.
