Hillcrest Vernon is a residential home for up to twelve people of either gender aged between 18 and 65 yrs with moderate to severe learning disabilities and who may also have physical disabilities, sensory impairment or specific health needs. The home seeks to provide long term care and support with maximum independence.
The house is located in the West Sussex coastal town of Littlehampton, in a quiet residential road adjacent to the local bowls and tennis club. The surrounding area is very flat which makes it ideal for people using wheelchairs or with restricted mobility.
Values and Principles
We aim to work with people, their families and professionals within a framework of anti-discriminatory practice and in such a way as to promote each person's individual value.
We are committed to:
- Actively promoting each person's participation in an ordinary lifestyle
- Supporting people to access community facilities
- Having positive expectations by highlighting each person's achievements and strengths without losing sight of their disability and individual needs
At Hillcrest we aim to exceed any minimum standards laid down by legislation and will work to commonly accepted standards of good practice adhering to O'Brien's Five Accomplishments through person centred planning approaches to support planning, evaluation and review of individual needs, wishes and aspirations.
Activities and Local Amenities
Facilities in the local area include:
- Multi-sports centre and two swimming pools (one with hydrotherapy pool)
- Cinema & theatre
- Day centres offering a wide range of activities
- Sailing and boating
Clients living at Hillcrest Vernon are encouraged and empowered to take an active part in their community and access mainstream leisure pursuits and interests. Individual support plans can include access to day centres, colleges or adult education classes, should the person wish to attend.
Our standard care package aims first and foremost to provide a placement in which the person's development, needs and wishes are catered for in a homely environment. Care fees are therefore costed according to assessed need and individual requirements.
