At Hurstville Drive we provide support to three individuals.
A person-centred approach is essential in supporting individuals in their everyday lives. We promote confidence and empowerment and ensure that individuals are encouraged and supported to lead active and fulfilling lifestyles.
Each resident is fully involved in the design and implementation of their unique support plan, which is tailored to meet their individual needs, goals and aspirations.
This young all female home is ideally suited for individuals moving out of children’s services/residential school for the first time who requires a nurturing and supportive service to develop independent living skills in order to move to more independence in the future.
The individuals who live at Hurstville Drive access a variety of community based activities to support their development. There is a vehicle based at the house and there are good public transport networks close by.
Waterlooville shopping precinct is within walking distance, which has a variety of shops, cafes and pubs. The A3 motorway is easy to access and allows easy routes to bigger city facilities such as Portsmouth and Southampton.
The residents enjoy activities such as bowling, cinema, shopping, swimming and ice skating using local community facilities. Activities don’t just stop when they get home though; in-house we do messy play, arts and crafts, and countries around the world projects as well as cooking and pamper sessions.
The female only staff team are fully trained and experienced in working with people with a range of complex needs associated with their learning disability, including autism, epilepsy, physical disabilities and communication needs.
The staff support and encourage individuals to maintain family and friend relationships, make informed choices and enjoy a varied social life. Promoting independence is important to the ethos of the home and one individual has successfully moved into more independent supported living.
The home manager has a wealth and knowledge and experience in working with people with learning disabilities and autism. The home manager is qualified to level 4 NVQ Health and Social Care and Leadership and Management in Care.
The home manager has managed several residential services.
The home is a detached property situated in a cul-de-sac in a quiet residential area of Waterlooville.
Hurstville Drive has a fitted kitchen and dining area which opens up to the large landscaped garden. There is a downstairs lounge which also has access to the garden.
There are two downstairs bedrooms which are occupied by two ladies who moved into the home when it first opened, and on the first floor there is one further bedroom with an ensuite shower room.
All bedrooms are decorated and personalised to the individual’s choice. There is also a communal bathroom with a bath, as well as another living room upstairs so people can have space and time on their own should they choose to.
