For adults with learning disabilities

Vista has two homes for people who have a visual impairment and learning disabilities. Each person is supported to make decisions for themselves, with the aim being to support each person to take control over their own life.

Our dedicated, highly-trained teams are committed to delivering an excellent standard of care. We have excellent links with the local community, and every person is encouraged and supported to take part in leisure, social and educational activities tailored to their needs, abilities and interests.

The layout of the homes have been designed with visual impairment in mind, and Vista's services are always on hand when needed.


Situated in the heart of Leicester Forest East, with convenient transport links to the city centre, Applegarth is set back from the main road in beautiful surroundings.

Maggie was born with no sight at all, and has almost no verbal communication. She moved into Applegarth in 2010, after living in several health care institutions throughout her life.
