Living at this service
We are ready to welcome someone new. The people we support here are mainly women, so a man would provide balance to the apartments. At Sheehan Court, people choose how they spend their time.
“Sheehan Court is a very friendly place. The staff are long-standing and go above and beyond for all the people we support - they are very approachable. The apartments are beautiful inside, and really easy for people to make their own. The atmosphere is busy but calm. All of the people we support are good friends and like to socialise. The area is very calm and nice.” Manager, Sheehan Court
