At Rookery Hove, we support 13 males and females aged between 18-35 on the autistic spectrum and individuals with complex mental health needs.
The services we provide promote independence and life skills, whilst getting our residents ready for moving on from Rookery Hove.
Living at Rookery Hove
Located in Hove, East Sussex, the service provides a safe, secure and friendly environment for the individuals which live here. What sets us aside from any other local providers is we try not to set up a home for life; the service is more of a step towards independence and moving on from Rookery Hove.
We have a daily activities programme based on individual interests and abilities. Our residents decide what they want to do based on their person-centred plan, as well as through the discovery of further hobbies and activities. This includes visiting the local leisure centre where residents can use the gymnasium and go swimming.
We are also close to the sea so a favourite leisure activity for our residents is walking along the beach.
Other leisure activities include:
- Access to local pubs and clubs
At Rookery Hove, our expert team’s aim is to empower individuals to take control of their lives and where possible, work towards a level of independence which fits with their confidence and aspirations. The skills we help to develop using step-by-step programmes include:
- Food shopping
The service includes comprehensive educational packages accredited through a number of national organisations. We also have strong connections with the local colleges with many residents studying a wide range of courses including arts, I.T and photography.
Work experience opportunities are also available and we are currently working with Brighton and Hove City Council and Age UK.
