Type of property
Cherry Croft, a lovely service located in the picturesque village of Penkridge in the south of Staffordshire, is ready to welcome someone new. At Cherry Croft, everyone is supported to live a happy and fulfilled life with as much independence as possible.
The house is a three-bedroom bungalow with an open plan dining room and living room, separate kitchen and laundry room. There is a shared bathroom with a shower and one bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. The property has an accessible garden with a patio for spending time outdoors, and assistive technology can be tailored to suit the needs of each person. There is level access into the bungalow.
Like everything with Lifeways, our approach puts the individual at the heart of all that we do. It means we listen, we learn, and we build relationships, involving the person we support, their families and professionals in building a support plan that’s totally unique to each person.
Living at this service
Life at Cherry Croft is suitable for people with learning disabilities, brain injuries or autism.
We are ready to welcome a person aged between 40 and 60. The people we support here appreciate their own space and enjoy a quiet atmosphere, so someone with a similar outlook would be an ideal fit.
