Children's Complex Care Service in Hartlepool
Granville Lodge in Hartlepool is a specialist residential and short break service for young people with complex life-long health conditions. We’re committed to helping every person we support feel safe and happy, enabling them to live the best life possible.
Located in Hartlepool, Granville Lodge is purposely small, with nine beds. We are located in an adapted Victorian house in a quiet residential street in Hartlepool. We look after children and young people who cannot be cared for at home, most commonly because they need a high level of skilled care.
Whilst the children staying with us have clinical needs, we have taken great care to ensure our centre still feels like a family home. Children staying with us permanently can decorate their own rooms, just as they can at home, and we encourage our young people, wherever possible, to be part of the running of their home and to try out new experiences.
We understand that all the children we support have different needs, so alongside their key workers, families, and medical professionals we ensure that the support we provide is bespoke in every detail. Each child has a comprehensive support plan which covers every aspect of their care and support, taking in to account any concerns and issues that may arise and ensuring all needs and requirements are met enabling them to live the very best life possible.
We organise plenty of trips out so that our young people can enjoy all the usual fun family activities on offer. Popular choices are Butterfly World and the Alan Shearer Centre. We also offer short-breaks for young people who normally live at home with their families.
Our wonderful team understand that a holistic approach is necessary to ensure that those in our care are safe, happy, and healthy. We promote and fulfil the company values of being caring, honest, pro-active, and empowering for those we support.
We believe we give our children a level of personal caring support not matched elsewhere. We are also ambitious for the young people we look after. We believe in each and every one of them and their potential to live a better life.
