Care and Support for Adults

Offering high quality care and support to people which is centred around individual needs, offers choice and promotes independence


West House specialises in providing individual care and support to people with learning disabilities across Cumbria.  This includes support in their own home, a rented property, a shared house or one of our five residential care homes. 

We have expertise in providing care for a wide range of needs – this includes 24-7 care for people with complex needs resulting from learning and other disabilities, through to providing occasional support for someone living independently. 

Our approach is to work with the individual to identify their needs and aspirations, and then support them in the way they want, to live a fulfilling life.  We are committed to working proactively with other people who are important to the individual, including their families and other support agencies, to ensure that we have a full understanding of people’s needs and wishes. 

Our work is based on our values of being positive, person-centred and inclusive.  We value everyone and recognise and treat them as individuals.

West House can help you to plan a potential move into a new home or think about a new care arrangement.  We will help you assess your needs and will suggest a tailored support package for you. We’re happy to help you explore ideas and can signpost you to other organisations who can help you as well.
