Naomi House first opened in 1997 to offer care and support to children who were not expected to live until adulthood. Since then we have helped more than 1,000 families from Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Isle of Wight, West Sussex and Surrey.
Our newly refurbished house provides excellent facilities to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable stay for all our children and families.
The Music/Play room, the Art room and the TV/Games room all provide something different to keep everyone entertained; whilst the pool and the sensory room are favourites for both fun and relaxation.
Our Activities team organise many events and outings with the needs of all our children in mind, so there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Each family accepted for care at Naomi House will be able to enjoy a number of respite nights in house each year. Our families use these differently according to their own particular needs. Sometimes families will come altogether to enjoy a family holiday, with their referred child being cared for by the team in house, whilst the rest of the family stays in the Family Accommodation within the building. This enables the family to enjoy time and space and activities together without having to worry about the practicalities of every day life – meals are cooked for the family, and nursing care provided throughout the stay for the child who has these additional needs.
At other times, parents may choose to take the opportunity to take a very well earned break with their other children, or perhaps for time with each other. They can relax in the knowledge that their child is being cared for in an environment where all their needs can be met and they can enjoy some additional activities and experiences organised uniquely for them.
Day visits are also popular when families may come and enjoy a day at the house, with staff to help and support the child’s needs and the chance to enjoy activities together such as swimming, the sensory room and the garden. This is an ideal opportunity to meet with the Family Support team too.
