Living at this service
We are ready to welcome new people to join the people we support here. Houses 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 support men, while houses 9, 10 and 11 support women. Number 3 is vacant, and this apartment is best suited to people with a good level of independence who like to spend time outside the house.
At Key Hills Park, people choose how they spend their time. Trips to the coast and tourist attractions are favourites. People often come together to celebrate special occasions such as Halloween and Christmas.
“Key Hills Park provides person-centred care. The staff aim to empower all of the people we support and help people to gain confidence in their life skills. This is not a typical residential home - there is a very tranquil energy across the scheme. All the houses are kept and furnished to a very high standard, with each house becoming a true home for the people we support. The longest resident has been here for twelve years. People interact with each other and come together for celebrations. This is a beautiful area to live in and the community around the house is very safe.” Manager, Key Hills Park
