Disability

/media/adults/library/disability_880.jpg

People with disabilities, sensory impairments or learning difficulties find the care, understanding and support they need to live life to the fullest at St Vincent’s apartments, in the community, and in St Catherine’s Bungalows and Day Service.

Clients are seen first for the person they are, not for the disability they have or the wheelchair they may use. Inclusivity and accessibility are not just words at Father Hudson’s; they are a way of life. 

St Catherine’s Bungalows – person-centred care delivered by a well-trained, highly experienced and dedicated staff team. The purpose-built bungalows are home to sixteen people with a range of learning, physical and sensory disabilities. Each bungalow is personalised to the needs of the residents and encourages a small community environment in which people can flourish and grow.

As well as care and support with daily living, St Catherine’s offers resident holidays and short breaks, social activities, community-based activities and support with medical appointments. Residents can also use the nearby St Catherine’s Day Service. Please visit St Catherine’s bungalows page to find out more.
