Rehability UK Dorset is based in the beautiful town of Christchurch. Christchurch is close to beaches, the New Forest and Bournemouth. It is famous for its priory, Quay and historic town. A most relaxing place, there are plenty of restaurants, coffee houses and a favourite of visitors to the region for many years. The sailing town of Lymington and its ferries to the Isle of Wight are only 20 minutes away.
Dorset features a lovely mix of coastal locations and rural countryside, beautiful scenery and the Jurassic Coast Path nestling on the southern coast of England.
We have proven expertise in supporting individuals who have a mental health diagnosis, individuals with profound, mild and moderate learning disabilities, and individuals on the Autistic Spectrum. Our Team in Dorset are skilled in providing outcome-focused person-centred support for individuals. We work closely with members of the local multi-disciplinary teams, to make sure that people have the best possible outcomes.
The people we support are involved in a variety of activities and organisations, both locally and further afield. Some go to college, others to pubs/cafes, along with music venues and the many fine restaurants. We are all involved in our local village and we all recognise that our voice is both wanted and valuable.
A recent survey of the showed that they love their home, the area and the way that the staff individually support them. We offer person centred support that encourages independence and development along with an emphasis on each person living the life of their choosing. We are aware of the hopes, dreams and aspirations of the people who live at our services and we are passionate about supporting them as individuals in line with the needs and wishes.
One of our support workers, Nicola Dancer said, “I love being a support worker at Rehability UK, it’s rewarding knowing that you are making a difference.”
One of the people we support said, “Best House ever” another said, “the staff are good and supportive” and another gave us a ‘thumbs up.’
We are determined together to provide a service with a smile on its face, a place to grow, achieve and make memories.
I came to health and social care after a varied career, and it has been a fantastic ten years. Starting as a support worker, I was able to bring my life experience to help me in my role, enabling me to work my way up to Registered Manager. Working with people to help them achieve their best possible life is what gets me up in the mornings, that and coffee of course! I can’t imagine doing anything else now.
