FitzRoy Hampshire – Whitegates View and The Cottage
Whitegates View, a registered care home, opened in 2013.
Three houses, each carefully thought out and fitted, accommodate five people each on this beautiful site. The brand new, state of the art registered care home
Set in the lovely countryside of East Hampshire, with access to all local amenities in the pretty town of Liss this location really is something special.
Whitegates View is a redevelopment of Whitegates, which provided excellent support but as a physical structure wasn’t as flexible as we needed it to be. The redevelopment has enabled the seven people we currently support to be able to stay in the community they have known for many years, and not have their lives disrupted by having to move away from family, friends, activities and clubs. In developing the site we’ve also been able to extend opportunities for others to join us.
The homes at Liss will offer a more personalised support and a calm, relaxing environment with choice about who you live with, and how you live. We are committed to listening to your needs and offering choice, respect and opportunities for you have your say through house meetings. These in turn influence FitzRoy's policy and decision making as house meetings feed into regional, then national forum meetings. As a purpose built location, Whitegates View offers you flexibility in your living space (you can choose how you'd like the room decorated), and in how you want to live your daily life. There are opportunities to participate in the community, join in with activities and get out and about and do the things you enjoy.
It’s rare to get open space and wide horizons from every window, but here, the South Downs stretch out all around. The village of Liss is nearby, with good transport links (including a train station) the usual amenities – there’s an outstanding community centre and sports facilities for a village of its size and the people we support enjoy sports including yoga and keep fit here! We’re well known in the village and made very welcome – our supported living service is based in the heart of the village, with Whitegates View just to the west. Other FitzRoy services nearby mean residents can opt to join On Track’s activities at the Petersfield Day and Community service, or be a part of Rural Skills, our social enterprise in East Meon. Petersfield - a pleasant market town - offers further facilities (including a summer outdoor pool for those brave enough!) and shops. We have a fully adapted vehicle on site for planning individual days out or shared adventures.
The three modern homes which form the Whitegates View development offer high-spec, high-tech living solutions designed to make life as comfortable as possible, and offer as many opportunities for people to be independent as possible.
