About Modus Care

Independent Autism & Aspergers Syndrome Adult Care


In 2005, Modus Care was formed from the merging of two already established care companies providing specialist services for people with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), in the Southwest of England and Surrey. Modus Care began to develop tailored support packages for service users with Autism, Aspergers, learning disabilities and associated mental health needs, largely in a residential setting.

All staff were trained to a high standard to meet the specific needs of the service users, including managing challenging behaviours that may have been a barrier to placements in the past.

The development of small independent hospital units allowed Modus Care to support service users with additional issues, such as pervasive personality disorder or those detained under the mental health act (1983). The provision of trained nursing staff meant that those with physical health needs such as epilepsy could be provided with specialist nursing input.

In 2009 Modus Care acquired the care company Small House Homes which had an already established range of services in the ASD and learning disability sector.  Small House Homes took on the name Modus Care (Plymouth) and direct management responsibilities came under Modus Care.

Since that time, additional units have been commissioned and existing services modified to provide bespoke packages of care.

Today, Modus Care provides specialist residential services and bespoke packages for people with Autistic Spectrum Disorder and associated conditions using Person Centered Planning and Positive Behaviour Support.
