Lotus Lodge is a seven-bed facility in the London borough of Redbridge, specialising in medium to long-term care for adult males and females diagnosed with moderate to profound learning disabilities and other complex neurological conditions that require continuous care. These include autistic spectrum disorders, cerebral palsy, physical impairments, acquired brain injury, and speech impairment.
The service at Lotus Lodge is focused on providing care both for long-stay residents and those who, because they are less impaired, have prospects for stepping down into supported living or directly back into the community.
