Living at this service
We are ready to welcome a man aged over 40 to join the people we support here, who are aged between 51 and 63 and live with learning disabilities.
One person enjoys going to the theatre and the cinema, driving his car, shopping, chatting with staff and going on holiday. Another likes sensory toys and blocks and the third person here enjoys walking and being out of the house.
At Wetherby Close, people’s hobbies include shopping, swimming, cooking and baking, gardening, watching television, listening to music, socialising and being in the community.
People choose how they want to spend their time - day trips to Stoke and other local towns are favourites. We have even been on an all inclusive ABBA themed weekend in Blackpool.
