History of the home
Astor Hall was purchased in 1958 by the Plymouth & District Disabled Fellowship. The Fellowship was formed by 37 people with disabilities in 1949. They continued to run the home until 2008, when charitable donations were no longer able to support it. It was at that point that the charities directors decided to offer the home to us as a going concern.

The Fellowship charity still exists and is still run from Astor Hall. It offers many services to its many members, whom live at Astor Hall or in the community.

Brief Description
As described by our CSCI Inspector:
There are close links between the care home and members of the Fellowship living elsewhere in the community in Plymouth. The home is located in a large detached building, beside Stoke village, in the Devonport area of Plymouth. A full range of amenities and facilities are a short distance from the home and the service has its own vehicles. Astor Hall can accommodate up to twenty-six clients over three floors. The dining room, kitchen and main lounge are on the ground floor level and a second quiet lounge is located on the first floor. A shaft lift accesses all floors in the building and all areas in the building are fully wheelchair accessible. There are a number of bath and shower rooms in the building including a wheel in shower and a fully accessible side-opening bath. All the bedrooms are single though none have en suite toilet facilities. There is a large area of parking space and garden to the front of the building. Also to the front of the building is a fully accessible patio area enabling residents to sit outside the building. The service offered by the home is for men and women with significant physical disability needs over the age of 18 and over the age of 65.

Accommodation

The home has 26 single bedrooms, all with fitted hand basin. Each room has wardrobes, chests of drawers amongst other furniture. However we find that often clients bring in their own furniture to suit their own tastes and needs. We also encourage clients to decorate their rooms as they wish, including paint colours, curtains and bedding, carpets and light fittings.

We have only owned this home for a very short period of time, and as part of our improvement plans for the home we intend to refurbish every room.

Facilities
Astor Hall has a large dining room, a very large lounge and activities area amongst other smaller communal areas. The home is currently undergoing refurbishment, which will improve the homes facilities benefitting all.
