Summergil house is set in 18-acres of beautiful woodlands in Presteigne in the county of Powys, which is located just on the Powys-Herefordshire Border. The home comprises of three individual buildings that each have been designed to meet the specific needs of the Individuals. The homes have been designed with an open plan kitchen space and corridors for easy access and space.
The grounds currently consist of grassed play areas for the children, along with a lake and river that goes around the property and many other places for the young people to explore within the 18 acres of land. Outdoor play equipment is modern and relevant to the individuals’ interests.
Currently there are three designated areas on the Summergil House site:
The Main Residential Home – Coach House This home can accommodate 8 individuals. It has open garden areas to the rear of the property and the Individuals can access at all times. Within the home each person will have their own bedroom which we will encourage them to personalise their rooms with whatever they want to put up or into their bedroom. This can be done by using soft furnishing, bed coverings, curtains, pictures and posters.
Separate living Accommodations– Ty Cariol /Ty Neweydd Each of these homes can accommodate 5 individuals at one time. Again, with these living spaces for the young people, they offer a lot of space and relaxing areas for the children. These two homes also have private gardens and a terrace area
We offer each person an individually tailored holistic programme of support using a person-centered approach. We aim to support the individual to reach their full potential by setting goals and targets which are worked towards and achieved. We will empower individuals to be actively involved in all aspects of their lives and their care in order for their independence to develop both within the home and in the community
We are committed to ensuring that all individuals in the home have the opportunity it contribute to the running and development of the home and that their wishes and choices are heard.
