Living at this service
We are ready to welcome a man aged over 50 to join the people we support here, men aged 59 and 86 who live with mental health conditions and autism. The older man here likes animals, puzzles, drawing, and arts and crafts. The other man is very routine based and likes to keep things tidy. He enjoys going for drives in the car, housework and spending time in the house
“The environment at Beacon Lane is very calm. It has a lovely green garden to look out on with a little pond. The neighbourhood is quiet and the atmosphere is very relaxed, especially in the evenings. People enjoy gardening with potted plants and baking together. We have easy access to all amenities. The property is large so everyone can have their own space. This is a lovely place to live - both of the people we support have lived here for twenty years.” Manager, Beacon Lane
