Living at this service
We are ready to welcome a sociable woman aged over 50, with a good level of independence. The women we support here are aged between 64 and 71 who live with learning disabilities and arthritis. One woman is registered blind.
One person, who lives in the annex likes to go out in the local area, as well as watching soaps in the house with the other women. One of the women we support spends the day at the local day centre three times a week. She likes the company of others and appreciates a slower pace of life. One person here likes to stay busy and enjoys a good conversation with others and another volunteers in a local cafe and enjoys shopping.
People choose how they spend their time and have hobbies including listening to music, watching television, arts and crafts, jigsaws, socialising, going to the pub, walking, going out for lunch, cooking and being in the community. Trips to the coast, tourist attractions and Skegness are also favourites. As a group, people go to the local club every Friday night.
“The ladies at Brambling Way are all very independent. People go about their own things and then come back together. It’s a very cheerful and calm house, where people are friends with each other. This really is a very welcoming and cheerful place to live. The house itself is very homely and the area is safe.” Manager, Brambling Way
