Providing specialist support for individuals living with mental health problems such as Korsakoff’s syndrome and the effects of Alcohol-Related Brain Damage.
Campania is a large Victorian building which is a short walk from Weston-super-Mare’s famous seafront with its promenade and the famous pier.
The facilities at Campania are provided with the intention of enabling independence. Each day our residents can be found getting involved in a variety of activities including art classes, baking and cookery. Cooking a nutritional meal is a key skill to establish on the way towards independence. To help achieve a sense of calm and stability, we have introduced mindfulness and meditation, which takes place 3 times a week at Campania.
The activities coordinator arranges weekly trips and visits to the local swimming pool, gala bingo and country walks as well as visiting places of historical interest. Residents are also actively involved in the ‘Green Gym’, an environmental scheme helping to clean up woodland and surrounding countryside. Every Friday our residents visit the local cinema and watch the latest movies and Thursday are kept free for Ten Pin Bowling.
Our residents play a vital role in all manner of domestic tasks that help keep the home clean and tidy whilst developing further life skills. Laundry, housekeeping and garden maintenance are just a few responsibilities our residents undertake with support. Care plans and daily notes are completed by the majority of our residents.
A large lounge with computers and internet access is a popular social spot. Here the residents can take part in activities, learn and develop new skills on the computer or read from the large selection of books, newspapers and magazines which are available.
Campania also benefits from a spacious conservatory with games room. The majority of the daily activities programme takes place here, it’s always alive with activity and generally something engaging going on. Step outside and you’ll find our lovely courtyard garden with vegetable planters and flowerbeds, all of which are tended by our residents.
We have seen individuals thrive in Campania’s relaxed and supportive atmosphere, enjoying life to the full and achieving goals that have previously
been beyond them.
