Our aim is for the house to be as homely and welcoming as possible in order for the children and families to feel relaxed and secure.
Sunflowers is an adapted Victorian house on Cottenham High Street designed to provide all the comforts of home combined with accessibility and safety for wheelchair users and those with complex health needs.
Downstairs there is a lounge, dining room, modern kitchen, therapy room/sensory room and an office. There is also a shower room with electrical changing bench and toilet.
Upstairs are 4 large bedrooms which can accommodate parents and/or siblings if necessary. We have a large wetroom with a standard bath and a shower trolley for those with less mobility. There is also a staff room on this floor so the nurse and carer are close by overnight.
Outside we have parking for 7 cars including a large disabled space. There is a lovely, sunny private patio area at the rear of the house and we have the use of a generous neighbour’s large garden.
We consulted with a Paediatric Occupational Therapist during the conversion and as a result installed tracking in the bathrooms and mobile hoists, up and downstairs, to assist with mobility. We also worked closely alongside the local building inspector and fire safety officer and obtained advice from CQC regarding the work in order to get it just right for the children and families.
