Living at this service
The men we support here live with varying complex needs including autism, cerebral palsy, learning disabilities, epilepsy and physical disabilities. Everyone appreciates a calm lifestyle with peace and quiet.
One of the people we support here is a wheelchair user who enjoys a quiet life sitting in his room, reading magazines, and listening to the radio. He also visits the local parks and goes out for coffee once a week. Another man likes keeping busy and being out of the house. He loves going to Inapartmenta Nation Theme Park, the cinema, coffee shops and for walks in the local area. One of the other men likes horse riding, swimming, walking and doing puzzles.
At Acacia House, people choose how they spend their time. Trips to the coast, tourist attractions and Sandringham Woods are favourites.
“Acacia House is in a quiet village with a strong community. It’s a friendly and safe place to live. The bungalow itself is beautiful, with its own garden, and is a great place to relax. The atmosphere is very calm and homely. All of the people we support have been here for ten years so there is a real community feel.” Manager, Acacia House
