Tigh Lenach

igh Lenach is located in Sanderstead in Surrey. It is very close to the large London borough of Croydon, but is also situated close to the Surrey and Kent countryside, offering a wealth of outdoor opportunities.

Within Croydon, there are numerous shopping centres and leisure facilities such as bowling, cinemas, museums, restaurants and swimming pools. There are also excellent transport links to central London and the surrounding areas with buses, trains and trams within easy reach.

Tigh Lenach is currently a six bedded property, and all rooms are single occupancy and offer en-suite facilities. The property benefits from a large enclosed garden leading down to picturesque woodland. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor with the other four being on the first floor. All bedrooms will be decorated according to individual tastes and preferences of the residents, promoting individuality and creating a personal space for each of them.

On the ground floor there are two large lounges and two smaller, quieter lounges in order to provide a great deal of space for our residents. There is also a large shared kitchen and dining room which gives space for residents to be supported with their meal preparation and various kitchen activities. There is also a communal laundry in which residents are supported to carry out their own washing and ironing.

Croydon is home to Croydon University hospital where there is a community learning disability team which supports our young people here and in nearby Redhill. The home benefits from very strong links with the local GP and various NHS services.

Staffing at Tigh Lenach is of a very high standard with all staff receiving regular training and completion of a six-week induction programme which enables them to gain a wealth of knowledge whilst learning about the residents' needs. The team are also expected to further their knowledge by completing the Care certificate in line with legislative requirements, going on to achieve a level 2 diploma in care, depending on their previous employment experiences. The high staff support ratio at Tigh Lenach ensures that residents are effectively supported in being an integral part of both their local and wider communities, providing access to any activity they desire to participate in.

At Tigh Lenach we promote and encourage our residents in living life to its fullest. We believe everyone should be both encouraged and empowered to recognise themselves as individuals and promote their everyday life choices, whilst ensuring that they are cared for to the highest of standards. We have a full activity schedule available for all those who wish to participate, and plenty of space and quiet areas for those who choose not to. We encourage our residents to be as independent as possible by promoting ownership of the home and we pride ourselves on providing a friendly, relaxed and calm atmosphere that ensures our residents feel safe, respected and cared for at all times.

Tigh Lenach means 'House in the Woods'.
