Who We are.
Antonine Court is an OSCR registered Charity Day care service for people with learning disabilities and associated health conditions. We are based in the Drumchapel area of Glasgow.
Our support service encourages greater independence and enables daily life skills. We do this in a warm welcoming safe and stimulating therapeutical environment that both supports learning and meets our service user’s health, well-being, and personal care needs.
To be able to access the Antonine Day Service; the service users need to be 16 or over and require care and support to break down the barriers their physical and learning disabilities can present, while regularly reacting to their own individual emotional needs and associated health support requirements and individual needs based on what level and type of support is required. All service users must have individual budgets such as self-directed support or ILF. This is arranged through their own individual care managers.
Those who use our service require various levels of support within many aspects of their daily living. While with us, they benefit from taking part in both individual 1 to 1, and group-based activities. These activities are tailored to each person’s individual needs based on what level and type of support is required. If you choose to use our service, attendance can be for between one and five days each week, six hours a day, for up to 48 weeks per year.
