Sunnyfield is broken down into three areas; a main house where 6 people reside, an annex for 3 individuals who are a little more independent and a bespoke 1 bed Bungalow, that was purpose built specifically to support an individual.
This gives the feel of smaller residential facility. People can move through into the annex when they become more independent and this is often a‘stepping stone’to living independently in supported housing. Having an independent environment means that individuals have the opportunity to enhance skills in all areas of their lives such as planning and preparing a meal from shopping for the ingredients to cooking it.
We have a garden with benches/chairs/tables for people to spend time in and have BBQ/party’s and the people have opportunity to garden and plant, seating areas and where they spend time in the summer with staff playing football and putting swimming pools up to relax and have fun in. We also have a pool room where people often congregate to have ‘pool tournaments’ with each other or just have some 1:1 interaction with staff. We have a quiet room with sofa, table/chairs, stereo etc where people we support can go and relax when they want some time alone or to have a quiet chat with staff. We have communal lounges with TV, DVD, Computer, CD player etc in them where people we support can interact with each other, staff or alone. People often use the computer to browse the internet, play games and listen to music on YouTube.
All bedrooms have en-suite facilities with modern shower, sink and toilet. There is also a staff sleep facilities to enable staff to sleep over accompanying the waking night staff, ensuring that wherever required people have 24-hour staff support.
