Welcome to Nightingale House
|Purpose:||Complex Disabilities, ABI|
Nightingale House provides a throughput service for young adults aged 16+ with complex disabilities and/or Acquired Brain Injury. This young adult’s residential home has been recently renovated to include all of the latest equipment to facility independence and dignity. Nightingale has also been carefully planned for therapeutic care with a garden filled with different smells, textures and elements which can be easily accessed by all.
Experts in the field of sensory technology have designed and installed our sensory room with the latest digital equipment. Heated flooring, an interactive mat, projector, lighting, sensory seating and the colour schemes provide a therapeutic space providing stimulation or relaxation. The room doubles as a cinema room providing further social space.
There is a modern bistro style dining room, through large floor to ceiling windows and French doors. Mealtimes are a very social occasion at Nightingale House and allow young people to get to know everyone as soon as they arrive.
Our short-break bedrooms have been designed with young people in mind and have shared bathroom facilities with specialist mobile equipment available dependent on the needs of the individual.
Providing an environment which is focused on development, building friendships and relationships with others with similar life challenges. Nightingale House continues the journey for young adults into semi-independent life.
