Blamsters Lodge is a four-bedroom residential home on the main Blamsters site in Halstead. The two-storey building is situated on the site of the former cart lodge and stables and has a communal kitchen, utility room and lounge.
It is a lovely site, teeming with wildlife in the beautiful grounds, and is walking distance to Halstead town centre.
People here are supported on a 24 hour basis, having 1:1 support throughout the day; during the night we have 2 awake nights staff. When accessing the community, they are supported on a 2:1 basis.
We have a dedicated team, some of our staff have been here for many years gaining a wealth of experience and some have just started their journey in the care sector. All of our staff team have varied backgrounds but all with the same values and passions.
We believe in supporting individuals in a person-centred way and our aim is to one day prepare them for independent living by empowering and promoting their independence.
We support them with varied tasks and activities ranging from personal care and preparing meals to supporting them on their chosen holidays. They enjoy different activities from sensory drives, bowling, lunches and dinners out, and weekly college. We believe they should all live a meaningful and productive life.
Summer time consists of BBQ’s with other homes on site, day trips to the nearby seaside towns, holidays and walks across the beautiful fields surrounding us. Winter time we have movie days, indoor activities such as arts and crafts, along with all the regular activities such as lunches out and bowling.
All year round we all look forward to special occasion parties such as birthdays, Hallowe’en, Easter egg hunts, firework night and Christmas time!
