The team are supportive and positive and focus on person centred planning to support each individual’s needs. They are respectful to the needs of each individual they support and what they want to achieve.

They encourage greater independence in the local community, whether this be travelling independently or supporting them to enjoy local activities. The service has its own transport and good access to local transport to facilitate this.

There is a large lounge area and a bright, airy dining room which is ideal for the many activities held at Smythe House. There is also a pleasant garden with a paved seating area and gazebo where people can relax and get together.

A variety of daily living skills are encouraged where the team support people to do their laundry, cleaning and shopping. They also help with decision making and finding new opportunities.

Some of the individuals attend work placements a couple of days a week and the team have built strong relationships with family and friends who attend regular events held at the service.

Regular meetings are held with the individuals we support to discuss opinions on all aspects of running the home.

Views & Opinions

My daughter has been at Smythe house almost 11 years. During this time she has matured in many ways with the help of a superb team, headed by a gifted manager who brings it all together.
She has a complicated condition which requires focused and sympathetic support, not everyone can do this but at Smythe house they have an excellent team dedicated to the residents needs and they achieve a high level of success. I cannot recommend them highly enough!
I am very happy with the care they show for my daughter.

I cannot find words big enough to describe just how I feel about Smythe House, the manager and support team! My daughter has been a resident there for almost 11 years – she has a very full and varied life there. The staff team are brilliant – very helpful to my daughter and all aspects of her life. They are led by a superb manager who is always ready to listen to us and understand our need to be involved in our daughters care.
Thank you for this opportunity to express my thoughts.
