Bespoke Residential Apartments with Nursing
The name Hope House was chosen by one of the gentlemen who moved into the service when it first opened. He said:
"I am always hoping for something and always hoped to live in this area"
Hope House in Hartlepool is a residential care home with nursing which delivers 24 hour care and support for up to 11 people in self contained bespoke apartments adapted to meet their individual needs.
The service was specially designed in partnership with local commissioners and community teams to provide personalised support for people with complex histories. Hope House was designed based on the specific individual requirements of the service users. These include bespoke ensuite facilities, a secure kitchenette designed around the individual and a private garden. Additionally there is a spacious communal garden.
Hope House serves adults with a learning disability and complex needs, including people who have additional mental and physical ill-health and behaviours that challenge service delivery. At Hope House 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 our 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.
Hope House and the surrounding area.
Hope House is situated in Hutton Avenue close to Hartlepool town centre and has been reconfigured to create six individual, bespoke self contained apartments. Everyone has access to a communal garden. The service will work in partnership with Hartlepool local commissioners as well as existing community learning disability services, to provide multi-disciplinary input into Hope House. Service users are supported to access local community facilities within Hartlepool town centre which is in walking distance. A few of the community facilities available to service users at Hope House are colleges, swimming pools, cinema and shopping.
The individuals at Hope House may be stepping down from hospital provision or may be people who need a more robust package of care than can be provided in supported living. They may also be people who are on a care pathway towards a place of their own.
