Living at this service
The people we support here are two women aged between 55 and 67, who live with learning disabilities and mental health conditions. One of the women spends a lot of time in the community and dislikes being in the house for too long. The other woman likes socialising, dancing, knitting, practising her religion, and doing household chores.
At Holmwood Drive, people enjoy watching television, shopping, swimming, cooking, listening to music, karaoke, playing the keyboard, walking, watching football, and being in the community.
People choose how they want to spend their time - day trips to Wales, Bognor Regis and the zoo are favourites.
“Holmwood Drive is very homely and staff pride themselves on giving home cooked meals and enhancing the quality of life for the people we support. The people here are friendly and welcoming too.” Manager, Holmwood Drive
