Hylton House is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) as a Care Home providing personal care. The service is registered for adults aged 16 and above who have a learning disability. Registration criteria include people with sensory impairment, learning disabilities and physical disabilities.
Hylton House provides accommodation over two floors and comprises 8 double bedrooms. Four of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, and the other four have a vanity unit with a hand basin. All occupants share a spacious lounge, and a large kitchen, breakfast and family room. To the rear of the property there is access to a patio and large private garden area. The accommodation is designed to enable easy access for people who use a wheelchair.
Hylton House is on a residential road in a beautiful area of Sutton. It has been extended and adapted into a comfortable home and is surrounded by other spacious and comfortable family homes. The service offers twenty-four-hour support, including waking night provision, to meet daily living, social, emotional and educational needs. Alongside focusing on supporting individuals to increase their skills to enable their participation more fully in ‘ordinary life’, services seek to empower people by supporting them to develop their means of communication and by encouraging individuals to make informed choices. We aim to provide a person centred approach to care.
Person Centred means doing things in a way that the person wants, and which helps them to be part of their community. If someone is in the centre of something – they are the most important person.
