Living at this service
We are ready to welcome a mature person aged over 60 years of age. The people we support here are both in their sixties and live with an acquired brain injury and learning disabilities.
The woman we support has a great level of independence and likes going to activities on her own. This includes coffee clubs, arts and craft centres, shopping and going for lunch. The man at Roocroft enjoys sticking to a routine. Once a week he goes to buy DVD’s and CD’s, as well as attending music groups and an arts and crafts club.
People have varied interests including listening to music, watching television, cooking and baking, gardening, walking, gaming, bingo, karaoke, socialising and being in the community.
“Roocroft is in a very quiet area that is peaceful and safe. It’s close to all amenities and has a strong community around it. The house is large enough for the people we support to have their own space away from each other and staff if needed. Staff are there 24 hours a day and work to help all the people we support to achieve their goals and independence.” Manager, Roocroft
