The Lanark Project comprises two separate small residential care homes for adults with a learning disability and associated physical, sensory and mental health support needs. The houses, one of which is home to four individuals and the other home to five, are based in pleasant residential areas of Lanark.

Referral Criteria

The Lanark Service provides a service for adults of 18 years upwards who have a learning disability. Referrals are made by families, local authority Care Managers or other professionals. A single shared assessment will be carried out by the Care Manager with the individual’s needs and wishes central to all discussions. Individuals will be invited to visit the service prior to moving in, providing opportunity for the person to meet staff and those who live at the service. The first 4 weeks from admission are usually viewed as an assessment period, followed by a review to determine if Lanark can meet the individuals needs, or indeed if it remains the service of choice for the person.
