Who we areWe provide specialist support at a sheltered housing scheme in Preston, working in partnership with Places for People Housing Association. We can support men and women aged 55 and over who are deaf, deafblind or have hearing loss, with additional complex needs such as learning or physical disabilities and mental ill-health.
We provide housing-related support to help people live independently within a safe, relaxed environment. We can also provide domiciliary care for anybody that needs additional support to manage their personal care. Our staff are on-site daily, from 8am–8pm, and we have an out of hours service that can be contacted in an emergency.
What we can offer – how we support youWe can give you a safe and comfortable place to live. Hunniball Court is a large, sheltered housing complex where a proportion of the flats are allocated to people who are deaf or have a hearing loss. We currently support 12 people in self-contained flats. Each flat has a bedroom, bathroom, lounge and a kitchen, where people prepare their own meals either independently or with support. There is also a spacious and bright communal lounge that can be used for social events, spending time with friends or just relaxing.
We will empower you to carry out day-to-day tasks as independently as possible, with support where and when you need it. Our staff team work in a person-centred way and will encourage, prompt and support you in all aspects of everyday life – from making healthy lifestyle choices and managing your medication, to dealing with housing issues, budgeting, learning new skills and getting out and about. We are also registered to provide domiciliary care so, if you need support with personal care, we can help you with that, too. Our friendly staff team are based on-site and will talk to you from day-to-day about what you plan to do and how you’d like to be supported.
