Supported Housing at Hammond Court
Friendship, lots to do, cleanliness, privacy, peace and quiet, home comforts, competent and kind staff; the list of desirable features for any supported accommodation can grow and grow.
At Hammond Court we certainly have all the above and pride ourselves in making new tenants feel at home and of course we have a wonderful history of over 200 years in caring for people with poor sight.
Currently our tenants range in age from early 20’s right through to their 90’s with varying levels of sight problems.
At Hammond Court we endeavour to ensure you feel at home and valued. The buildings are modern, well appointed and make delightful homes.

Hammond Court offers modern purpose built flats and bedsits where you can cook for yourself, eat with fellow tenants or have lunch brought to you from the residential home.
Some flats have individual gardens which give tenants that extra ability to imprint their own personality on their home.
Our wardens take a keen interest in the general welfare of the tenants and with CCTV and door entry system on our site you have the confidence of feeling safe. The wardens visit each tenant every day.
When one has sight difficulties some aspects of life can be difficult but with Hammond Court you can still retain your independence secure in the knowledge that wardens and even more specialist help is but a push button or telephone call away.
With Thomas Tawell House (our residential home) next door, there is every opportunity to make friends, join classes for computing, keep fit, craft or simply continue life as before but with the peace of mind and security of knowing that others are close by to help if needed.
A lively social programme is pursued and activities include crafts, games and musical entertainment as well as regular outings for general enjoyment in our own minibus.
Whilst we strive to ensure a full programme of activities, there are of course our large delightful gardens with mature trees, landscaped flower beds and in the summer months our scented roses, to be enjoyed on lazy, restful afternoons.
Her Majesty The Queen opened the new Bradbury Activity Centre in May 2010. The centre is close to Hammond Court and residents are encouraged to participate in all the activities. We are fortunate to be helped by many caring volunteers.
A Chaplain visits whenever requested. She also celebrates Holy Communion every month.
