Who we areHarding House is a specialist care home, without nursing, in Wandsworth, south-west London. We provide 24-hour support to 10 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 ill-health and low emotional confidence.
We support people to develop the knowledge and skills they need to be as independent as possible, while acknowledging some people need more input than others to achieve this. We encourage the people we support to focus on their personal health and wellbeing, and explore social and recreational interests so that they can lead happy and fulfilling lives.
What we can offer - how we support you
We can give you a safe and comfortable place to live. Our home has a variety of accommodation available:
- three bedrooms, each with washbasin and shared access to a walk-in shower room
- two independent flats that each have a kitchen, bedroom/living area and bathroom
- shared flat for two people with separate bedrooms, shared bathroom and kitchen
- shared flat for three people with separate bedrooms, shared kitchen/diner, lounge, bathroom and separate toilet
All rooms/flats also have the use of a main lounge, kitchen/diner and laundry room. We also share our house with a cat and some fish that everyone enjoys taking care of. The garden at the back of the house has recently been developed with a local community organisation. It is a lovely place to enjoy being outdoors, with raised planters, herbs, a vegetable patch, a pond, summer house and barbeque area.
We will empower you to do things for yourself, supporting you with all aspects of your daily life – from making healthy lifestyle choices and managing your medicines, to cooking, budgeting, learning new skills and getting involved in the local community.
