Marika House is a home for seven adults, it has a real homely feel and all rooms are person-centered to reflect the individual needs and preferences of the people we support. Five people share the main house, whilst two others live in individualized annexes within the grounds.
Marika Lodge is a single occupancy bespoke built home which has been completely adapted to meet the needs of the person who lives there, and it has its own garden. Marika 3 is another bespoke home for one individual which allows her to lead a more independent lifestyle making her own choices and living life as she chooses.
There is a large garden with raised beds and a green house. Marika House enjoys plenty of outdoor space for activities such as music festivals, bike riding, BBQ’s and water play and much more.
All our residents access a wide range of activities within the community from shopping, bowling, cinema, trampolining, spa and sensory activities, nail and hair salons, going to public houses, tea rooms and much, much more.
The people we support are encouraged to be as independent as possible in their everyday lives. Our staff are trained to support people to make informed choices about their care and support to enable them to live happy and fulfilled lives.
I have been working at Marika House since 2016, I came here with very little experience in the care sector but quickly developed a passion and drive to enhance the lives of the people we support! The future of Marika is a bright one, and that is down to an amazing team to which I am so lucky to be a part of. I never take for granted the sense achievement that I feel at work, the individuals that we support are truly amazing and we can all learn so much from them!
I joined Marika House at the start of 2017 with very little knowledge about autism and learning disabilities, because of my passion for helping people to achieve their goals I decided to apply for a job as a support worker and over the years have been promoted to Senior support worker, Team leader and now Deputy Manager. Since being at Marika I have expanded my knowledge and skills by taking on a course in principles of team leading, professional skills development and recently got my diploma in Adult care which has helped me on my career path to get to where I am now!
Positive Support Co-ordinator
When I started working at Marika House in 2018, my plan was to move to a different county in couple of weeks, but I quickly realised that my heart belongs here and it changed my life. I gained a lot of experience, made a great friends and found my passion. I am very proud of the amazing work we do here at Marika House and I could not wish for a better team to work with. Every day is different, beautiful and I am excited for the future of Marika House and the people we support.
