We are a home for anyone over the age of 18 who requires nursing or residential care — long or short stay. Since Fonthill House opened 6 years ago, our team has gained an excellent reputation, thus extending our initial goal of caring for older adults to providing the same high standard for younger adults as well.
Fonthill House appeals to younger people and their families because it is a purpose built, light and airy building with large communal rooms — better likened to a “high-end hotel” than to an institution.
To build on the exciting range of activities run day-to-day, Fonthill House is currently undergoing adaptations to incorporate a sensory area and stage.We also have facility for virtual reality experiences which has proven to be an excellent distraction and source of pleasure to young people. At Fonthill House, we also own our own disability vehicle allowing us to arrange day trips to local attractions and ensure our young people have as much fun as possible.
Our nursing staff are also fully competent at PEG/PEJ feeding regimes and seizure management and are closely aligned with all other health professionals to ensure that the standard of care is seamless.
Many of the carers at Fonthill House are passionate about working with this age group so have developed exceptional skills and successful approaches to communication.
The sophisticated, secure IT systems at Fonthill House enable clear communication between staff and family members so that even if not physically present, families will still feel very involved in the lives of their young adult.
