Living at this service
We are ready to welcome a sociable person aged over 40 years old. The people we support here are in their mid forties and live with learning disabilities, Down’s syndrome and mental health conditions. One person we support enjoys doing puzzles, and being in the community. Another person here goes to a lot of groups. He also likes dancing, football and volunteering.
At Kufeena, people choose how they spend their time. Hobbies include listening to music, walking, karaoke, watching television, cooking, going out for lunch, bowling, gardening, watching tennis, going to the pub, shopping and socialising. Trips to the coast and to tourist attractions are also favourites. One person here goes on holiday with family while the other enjoys going on cruises.
"Kufeena is in a very central location with good access to Derby city centre. The people we support are very sociable and active members of the local community. People like relaxing at home but particularly enjoy being outside and doing things in the local area. Kufeena is a very fun and calm house. The longest resident has been here for over ten years so the atmosphere is really settled.” Manager, Kufeena
