This is home and I feel really safe
I moved into Francis House on the 20/03/2020 Before I lived at Falcon Lodge run by lifeways before moving to Francis House before life ways lived with mum and dad.
When I lived at Lifeways- not very nice staff would not take her out, only time I got out was when my family took me out. The house was too small, I could bump into another person. most of the meals were microwaved. I had to be in my room for 8pm staff slept there.
Never went on holiday or day trips I did go to Ebrook, so this got me out. I would never want to live there again some staff were nice some staff were not.
Moving into Francis was easy as I knew lots of the residents who lived here was made very welcome staff treated me well, they are very nice, they take me out I go on holiday I can go to bed when I want there is always something to do and staff to support and it’s a big house I get to choose what I like to eat we have three menus to choose from and I do some baking with the staff making cakes and last week I helped make turkey cottage pie with staff I also go out for meals and coffee with my friends we have cake as well staff take me to the library I am now a member I get books with big print easy to read .I am also a member of the steering group at the trust and Ebrook centre . I ask the resident in our monthly meeting what they want me to say.
So, I can add to the Agenda I am good at talking for others.
Our doctor’s service is really good, we can see them when we need to, they call the house every week.
I have a nice life at Francis and don’t want to move again have lots of friends. This is home and I feel really safe I know if anything is bothering me, I can come and talk to staff or Manager who will listen to me and help me.
