About Seabourne House

Seabourne House supports up to five young adults with a learning disability and associated complex needs to develop the skills to live independently and as part of the local community.

Our approach to support:

We encourage people to identify their aspirations and make their own individual choices about day-to-day living as well as their longer term goals.

People living here provide feedback on the service through Craegmoor’s ‘Your Voice’ programme, which encourages individuals to voice their views about their service using the communication method that suits them best.

Staff provide 24-hour support, with levels of support for individuals based on their personal care plans. Staff receive mandatory and additional specialist training in areas such as autism, epilepsy and challenging behaviour

Seabourne House also works closely with community health professionals, including GPs, the community learning disability team and the local epilepsy nurse.

What it’s like to live here:

There is  a wide variety of activities for people to choose from in our local area, including bowling, going to the cinema, horse riding, pottery and swimming. Staff encourage and support individuals to pursue their own hobbies and interests as part of their independent lifestyle.

People we support can choose to help with food preparation and laundry inside the house - and as a result, we find that the individuals feel proud of their home as they play such a large part in running it.

We are situated in a quiet close, a five minute walk from the village of Dymchurch, close to a canal and only 100m from the beach. Seabourne House is close to the local train station and bus links, with Hastings, Folkestone and Dover all within reach for shopping and day trips.

“It’s a friendly place, the staff are nice and helpful.” – Person supported by Craegmoor

Facilities:

Seabourne House is a large converted family home. Two of the five bedrooms are on the ground floor and one bedroom has an en-suite shower and toilet; all of them are large and comfortable. Everyone is encouraged and supported to personalise and decorate their own bedrooms.

Outside we have an enclosed garden space, which individuals enjoy relaxing in, as well as helping out with the gardening.
