We specialise in supporting and assisting people with sight loss. The staff are well trained, caring and they do their best to support my daughter. Everything is always organized and the atmosphere is very friendly says Julia, mum of Fiennes House resident, Carolyn Donna-Marie (pictured) moved into SeeAbility’s Fiennes House in November 2000. She enjoys being involved in different activities like singing, playing her keyboard, going out and attending regular hydrotherapy sessions. We want to excel as a specialist provider of quality care and support, ensuring the people we support are at the heart of everything we do. Our aim is to enable them to make choices and express their individuality. Personalisation is not a tick box exercise for us, but is fundamental to how we deliver our mission every single day of the year. Our specialist support team work closely with the people we support, providing rehabilitation to people with sight loss to help them maintain and develop skills, and be more independent. We have speech and language therapists who support people with communication difficulties and the team also provides assistive technology and accessible information. . “Staff we spoke with demonstrated a person centred approach to care. They understood the needs of the people they supported. They were able to tell us how people preferred to be cared for and were able to tell us people's different non-verbal communications that they used to express if they wanted something or if they were happy or distressed.” – CQC report Our facilities and accommodation Everyone supported at Fiennes House benefits from having access to a large sensory room with equipment to stimulate their senses using lights, sounds, music, and touch.
