Our Registered Manager has direct responsibility for the successful management of all of our registered accommodation. Each house has its own manager and staff team, greatly benefitting relationships with each resident individually, and over time, helping to further develop understanding and trust. Residents have their own rooms, which they can personalise to their own taste, while there are communal rooms, such as a kitchen, dining room and lounge, where everyone congregates to prepare meals, eat and talk, or to spend quality time with friends.
Every resident is encouraged to get involved with the basic running of the house.
Tasks, such as meal planning, shopping and food preparation, are all done together, wherever possible. People are encouraged to gain everyday skills, as well as to participate in their own choice of academic, creative, leisure and sports activities at a level that suits them best.
Our progressive pathway of care and support allows everyone to develop at their own pace and, whenever ready, to work towards gaining the necessary skills in order to live more independently. And if this doesn’t suit, and it doesn’t everybody, then we have the flexibility built in to enable everyone to retrace their steps. Each person’s happiness and welfare is the key to a successful lifestyle, and we will work tirelessly to ensure we get that right.
Our registered residential accommodation is based around a beautiful old manor house set in landscaped grounds in Westbrook Road, Godalming.
We have eight houses that make up our accommodation on site, with a contemporary, specialist, high-needs facility, Bradbury House, opened by HRH Princess Alexandra in 2016. Assistive technology is now a key feature of our forward strategy and we have seizure monitoring systems throughout our buildings to ensure that everyone feels safe without the need for unnecessary staff intrusion, particularly at night.
