Old Leigh House in Essex is an Independent Hospital for Adults with a Learning Disability
Old Leigh House is an independent hospital located in Leigh-on-Sea in Essex. The service can provide assessment and intervention for up to seven men who are living with a learning disability and associated complex needs. The service can also support those who have mental health needs and behaviours perceived as being challenging.
Old Leigh House is a large semi-detached house which overlooks a park in a residential area of Leigh on Sea. It is not far away from the sea front and the beaches of Southend, Thorpebay and Shoebury East Beach. The service has a choice of lounges and communal areas for people to choose from and a small garden at the back of the house. The house has been specially adapted and has an accessibility lift for those people who come to us with mobility needs.
People come to Old Leigh House from a home environment, supported living or residential service due to an illness or a crisis in their life. They may also come following a stay at an NHS or other specialist service including a secure service. We believe that everyone should be treated as a full and valued member of their community with the same rights as everyone else. Therefore, our focus is rehabilitation and the improvement of the health and well-being of service users, developing trusting relationships and attaining positive outcomes. Service users are encouraged to identify and achieve their own personal aspirations using person centred thinking and approaches.
We work hard with the people, their families and those closest to them to find out what is important to them and what their hopes and dreams for the future are. This is part of our commitment to use every opportunity we can to hear and act on the views of those we support and those who know and care about them best.
