Our Service

At Hudson House all clients receive a personal care plan to suit their individual needs. We encourage people to make decisions and express their feelings and emotions. Clients are helped to maintain their independence through their care plan and we support their wishes to privacy and dignity. Above all, we respect our clients' rights to their beliefs and views.

By getting to know the individuals that we care for, we aim to understand the causes behind any behavioural issues. It is imperative to respond in a supportive and therapeutic way that minimises the need for physical intervention. The experienced employees are familiar with possible causes of these problems and are fully trained in diversionary and de-escalating techniques.

Hudson House Facilities

Our philosophy of helping clients to reach their full potential and maximise personal growth forms the basis to our structured activity programmes. Activities include education, regular visits to local cinemas, shops, public houses, restaurants, leisure centres, fishing, swimming, gym, walks, long weekends away, computer skills and museums. Clients are also treated to bus and boat tours, and encouraged to help run the home. Best of all, our clients enjoy private, individually decorated rooms.

Service users have the follow-up support of community nurses who provide support for additional health needs and carry out medical reviews. Service users also have access to local health services including opticians, dentists and chiropodists as required.
