Pepenbury has particular expertise in caring for people with severe learning disability and complex needs, including those with additional physical disability, autism, specific syndromes, behaviour which challenges or mental health problems.
The main Pepenbury site in Cornford Lane, Pembury, has eight different houses and bungalows, nestled within 100 acres of beautiful, unspoilt countryside, that are home to 67 residents. We aim to provide a homely and warm environment where people feel safe and protected.
Individual Pepenbury houses have a particular specialism – from autism, to mild learning disability to severe learning disability and challenging behaviour. Each house is home to between 6 and 9 service users/residents with similar support needs to one another and has a manager and staff team with the relevant skills and experience needed to provide appropriate support to their residents.
There are a host of facilities on site – sensory room, swimming pool, small animal farm, outdoor gym and woodlands – that provide residents with the opportunity for fresh air and exercise that benefits their emotional health and well-being. There is a coffee shop and a nursery selling plants and produce grown on-site and breath-taking walking trails through 26 acres of ancient woodland. Living in a community setting does not mean that people are isolated, everyone is treated as an individual and supported in achieving their wishes and dreams.
Additional residential care is available within local communities throughout West Kent - Falconers Court in Edenbridge and Poppies in Southborough.
Residents also have access to Acorns daycentre, providing residents with a wide range of interesting activities, running each weekday, right on their own doorstep. Residents also take part in community based activities such as sailing and riding for the disabled, to create a rich and rewarding life.
We help people progress to live more independently where possible, but for others who will always require full time care, we offer a home for life.
Residential care is open to anyone from across the country, not just Kent and we don’t think there are many more beautiful places to live.
