It was a fantastic to visit the Martha Trust's home in Deal. They care for people with profound and multiple disabilities. The dedication of the 100 strong team of local carers towards supporting the residents to get the best out of life was clear to see.
Martha Trust runs three homes in Deal and Hastings, caring for 33 young people and adults. They also offer day services and respite care.
I was taken on a tour of the home and facilities - including a state-of-the-art hydrotherapy pool and multi sensory rooms - and chatted to staff and residents. I was particularly impressed with the way all of the residents' rooms were personalised to suit their individual tastes and needs.
The Martha Trust does great work. They are always looking for local people to help with and support their work and fundraising efforts - so do get in touch with them to see if there is a way you may be able to help out.
