Children and Young people are looked after in a caring and stimulating environment where they are encouraged and supported to achieve to the very best of their abilities Children and young people can stay on a weekly or termly basis.
At Hannahs our approach to care is family centred – we meet the individual needs of the child as well as the family’s needs. We combine the expertise of our therapy and medical staff to provide an all encompassing service which transforms the life of our students. At Hannahs, speech and language, occupational and physio therapists work together with our nursing staff to assess the needs of the child, young person. We take the time to find out how they are most comfortable both in a physical sense and when communicating. We regularly enable children, young people with physical disabilities to achieve real independence through their new found communication skills.
