Charles Davies House is a registered residential care home in Hockley. We provide a medium level of support for up to 13 adults who are experiencing mental health problems. Residents here are all people that staff expect will be able to move on into more independent accommodation at some point, after a period of staff support. We have staff here 24 hours a day, so there is always someone around to help whenever needed. But we also encourage residents to do as much as they can by themselves, including essential routine tasks such as cooking, shopping and laundry, to increase their independence.
The house is made up of three separate units. Units One and Three have single furnished rooms and shared communal lounge, kitchen and dining areas. Unit Two is made up of four bedsits which are individually furnished with a kitchenette and a bathroom. But this does not mean that people are restricted to their own unit – people socialise across all of the units, with residents even taking it in turns to cook for each other at weekends. Residents will first move in to Unit One or Three, then move across to Unit Two as they gain more confidence and independence.
Charles Davies House is on Lodge Road in Hockley. We are easily accessible by bus on the 16 and 74 Where we are routes, and we’re also just a short walk away from the Jewellery Quarter train station. We are near to the city centre, and also close to shops, a post office and a medical centre.
