FitzRoy Nottingham – Huw’s
Huw’s is a specialist home in Nottingham offering 24-hour nursing care and support to people with a learning disability and autism who also have other health conditions. Named after the son of one of our founding Trustees, Huw’s is one of our flagship nursing care homes, offering a warm and vibrant home for up to 14 people. Our current residents are mainly in their 20s, but we have residents aged 65 – so it is a lovely mix. We offer bespoke complex care packages that suit the needs of each individual and strive for clinical excellence.
Huw’s is a safe, relaxed and friendly home. We build links in the local community, and encourage everyone to get out and about, whether that is for grocery shopping or events and activities. We will support you to do what you enjoy and to make choices about how you live your life. We will work with you to make sure that the support we provide meets your needs and aspirations and encourages and supports your independence.
Huw's is located in Nottingham, in a pleasant and quiet residential area. Everyone who lives here makes the most of the lovely local community and enjoys a range of different activities from football and shopping, going to the cinema, eating out, bowling and even horse riding.
Living at Huw's
Huw's manager Anne Piri said: “A nursing home for people with learning disabilities is quite rare, but this kind of specialist clinical care is vital. The package we offer at Huw's means we can support people who are acutely unwell, where perhaps they have conditions such as epilepsy or dementia and need more intensive intervention and clinical support. Huw's is home to 14 men and women – mostly in their 20s – who have a passion for living life to the full, and all the opportunities the world has to offer. Their families work with us very closely, which makes for a warm, busy and creative atmosphere at Huw's. For some of our younger residents, this is their first move out of their family home – it is hard for everyone to take that step, but the level of support they need just can’t be provided at home. We support that transition in every way we can, and work closely with families to make what can be such a difficult time as smooth as we can."
Huw's accommodates 14 people across two separate buildings each of which have separate adapted facilities.
One building is home to eight people in two separate flats, each with an assisted bathroom, wet room, large kitchen/diner and separate lounge area, as well as a shared laundry room. Tracking hoists have been installed to ensure safety and comfort when moving between bed, wheelchair and bath. A large activity room offers a 50” height-adjustable touch-screen and interactive whiteboard.
The second building is home to six people, each with their own en suite bathroom. There is a large kitchen-diner as well as a comfortable lounge and a laundry room.
The garden, shared by both homes, has been completely landscaped with raised beds, sunny patios, a large decking area, a sensory area and wheelchair accessible paths.
