Living at this service
McAnany Avenue is ready to welcome a man of any age who lives with a physical disability. We support three men aged between 40 and 50 who live with developmental delay, quadriplegia, cerebral palsy, and degenerative neurological disease.
One person we support here enjoys walking, going to the day centre, art classes, attending college and doing jigsaws or reading in the house. Another likes going outside, listening to music and peace and quiet. He has a great sense of humour and his complex needs mean he requires staff support for most activities. Another enjoys going to see shows, watching DVDs in his bedroom, and going to the disco.
At McAnany Avenue, people choose how they spend their time. Trips to the coast and Blackpool are favourites. One of the people we care for goes on holiday every year to Benidorm. A therapy dog regularly visits the property.
“McAnany Avenue is very homely. The people we support have created a friendly place to live and the environment is relaxed and happy. The staff are trained to deal with a vast range of complex needs and behaviours. The street is very quiet and calm, and the community is safe and clean.” Manager, McAnany Avenue
