Supporting Adults with Learning Difficulties, Autism, Asperger's, Behaviours that can Challenge

Adelphi Care Services

The Directors opened the Orchard School in l992; a residential school for students aged between 11- 19 years, with  Learning Difficulties and  behaviours that can challenge. In later years the school specialised in students with Autism and Learning Difficulties.

 As students reached the end of their education at The Orchard School, placing authorities required young adult placements that offered both consistency and continuity with  routines and structures that had been so successful in the residential school environment.

Adelphi Care Services Limited was established following the need for students to transition from the Orchard School in to adult services

In 1999 Roseville House was opened to provide care and support for five of these young adults. Roseville House is fully occupied with both ex-students of The Orchard School and clients referred from other authorities who required this type of provision.

Some five years later, in 2004, Highbury House opened its doors to further ex-students from The Orchard School and also from the local authority (Shropshire) seeking specialised support. Highbury House has both ground floor and first floor bedrooms.

The company continued to grow which led to the development of Merrington Grange in 2006 situated  in rural location at Bomere Heath.

In 2009 Fernela a 4 bedroomed bungalow was opened, attached to the grounds of Highbury House in Wem. In 2013 a purpose built Autism specific respite service was opened in these grounds.

The company has now expanded in to another county with the provision of a five bedroomed house in Hanford Stoke. (Dacre House)
