Who we are

We are a specialist residential care home, without nursing, in Canterbury, Kent. We can provide 24-hour support to 27 deaf and/or deafblind men and women over the age of 18. The people we support have a range of diverse and sometimes complex needs, including learning and physical disabilities, mental health problems, and dementia.

We aim to support the people who use our service to gain the knowledge and skills they need to reach their full potential. In practice, this means supporting people to develop skills to increase their independence, establish and/or improve their communication skills, maintain their personal health and wellbeing and develop social and recreational interests.

How we support you

Our impressive-looking house has 24 bedrooms, and three supported living flats. Most of our bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, and you will be able to make the most of a wide range of facilities, including two living rooms with TVs and DVD players, a large dining area and separate kitchen and specially adapted bathrooms and toilets.

We also have an activities room offering arts, crafts and other creative pursuits and large, picturesque grounds with two conservatories. Of course, you would be welcome to bring your belongings and decorate your room or flat how you would like it. You would also get your own set of keys and be able to come and go as you wish.

We will support you to maintain or develop your independence. We will actively encourage you to carry out tasks for yourself, play a part in the wider community, and have your say about how the home is run – including planning menus, shopping and tending the garden.
