KASBAH is now able to offer regular respite opportunities at this site in addition to offering supported housing to up to two people with a higher level of need.
The Gingerbread House is a large five bedroom bungalow in Northfleet which has been extended over two floors. You have to see it to believe it, the hallway and in fact the whole property is light and spacious and has the feel of a Mediterranean villa, taking the stress of the day away as you walk in. There is a high staff ratio enabling this site to meet higher levels of need and support a range of community based activities, but please note KASBAH do not provide support with any personal care needs (separate care packages would need to be arranged).
Supported housing is available for up to two people on the first floor with their own dedicated bathroom.
Respite is available for up to two people on the ground floor with separate wash facilities. The larger of the respite rooms has a lounge area and its own kitchen area in addition to a shower room and separate toilet located next to the room. This makes the space ideal for assessments, a taste of independence or just a break from a person's every day routine.
In addition, KASBAH's main office has re-located to this site enabling access to extra resources and expertise when it is needed.
