Living at this service
We are ready to welcome a woman who can tolerate bouts of loud noise. The women we support here are aged between 27 and 58, and live with autism, learning disabilities, visual impairment, and physical disabilities.
One of the women enjoys quiz shows, and going out for meals or to the disco. One of the other women we support here likes any social activity, swimming and going out in her car. Another woman has complex needs and enjoys going to quiet beaches and parks, and being in the paddling pool with her toys in warm weather.
At St James Street, people choose how they spend their time. People’s hobbies include watching television, doing jigsaws, shopping, karaoke, gaming, hula hoops, going to the pub, walking, socialising and being in the community. Garden games are popular here - people particularly enjoy bowling and connect four.
“St James Street is a very lively and energetic property. Relationships between the people we support are encouraged to remain positive and maintained. Daily activities are very varied in this house. The community is safe and well maintained, and you'll notice the happy atmosphere as soon as you walk in.” Manager, St James Street
