About Mackadown

We Prioritise Ability Over Disability

Mackadown Day Care was formed in 1999 when its Founder, Rita Keen, recognised the need for quality day care services within Birmingham.  A unique day care service, with the philosophy of focussing on the person first and disability second, was established.

Our service specialises in adults with learning disabilities and complex health care needs such as Epilepsy and clients who require peg feeding, as well as those who are wheelchair users.  Our highly trained staff team provide bespoke, client-focussed quality care to our clients taking into account their physical, emotional, social and intellectual needs.  

Operating For More Than Two Decades

We have been in increasingly high-demand since 1999.

    Mackadown plays a big part in Luke's life, we call it his second home. Mackadown gives him his own social life. and it also gives him a break from home, which is also good for him, and as a family it makes us feel at ease knowing he is happy when he is away from us. Luke has benefitted so much from Mackadown and continues to do so, so thank you for all you do and have done for him. Mackadown is definitely Luke's happy place!
