Fairways in Aldershot is a residential home for people with a range of disabilities and moved from Fleet in 2017 to join our new supported living service. We specialise in supporting and assisting people with learning disabilities, who may also have sight loss.
"I am really happy here and can talk to the staff at any time; they are all very approachable and if I have a problem, they are always willing to help and offer me some good advice. I feel that I am supported at all times."
Stephanie (pictured) is being supported to be part of the community and is a regular in the local coffee shop. She also enjoys workshops with her housemates and supporters. Fairways was rated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) as ‘outstanding’ in 2015.
We aim 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 support enables 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.
Clinical Assessment and Intervention Team
Our Clinical Assessment and Intervention Team includes qualified Vision Rehabilitation Workers (sometimes also called 'ROVIs') and Behaviour Consultants with at least a Masters degree in Applied Behaviour Analysis.
The Vision Rehabilitation workers play a vital role across SeeAbility and keep front and centre, SeeAbility’s commitment to supporting those with sight loss, as well as those with a diagnosis of learning disability or autism.
Where funded, Behaviour Consultants assess each person’s needs by completing a functional assessment, ongoing monitoring, and support. They use this to develop people's person-centred support using a Positive Behaviour Support framework.
The Clinical Assessment and Intervention Team aim to increase individuals' quality of life, reduce unnecessary restrictions and teach functional skills. This means each person we support gets exactly the right kind of expert attention they need, when they need it, so they can make more choices about what they want from life every day.

"Staff recognised people's potential and enabled them to reach it. Staff told us they saw people's time living at the home as an opportunity to build their skills and confidence to live a more fulfilling life. Prior to her living at the home one person had used a wheelchair. Staff reported that the person had progressed with support and was able to walk with staff in the community."
