Following a fire at Rectory House in 2019 the staff team having been working incredibly hard to support the individuals living at the service to help them personalize the service and make it feel homely for them.

The fire meant that the individuals we support had to move out for 2 weeks which was an incredibly anxious time for them as some of them have lived at Rectory House for a long time.

During the time they were unable to be at home, one of the individuals we supported suffered a stroke and spent time in the hospital.

The staff worked incredibly hard to keep everything as normal as they could to reduce anxieties during a very tough time.

When Ricky returned from hospital, the staff then successfully worked with him to improve his mobility and ensure that he could once again do the things that he enjoys most.

In his recovery process, Ricky has been doing a variety of activities, including tidying his room every day and feeding the rabbits that live outside his home.

More recently, staff have been developing plans to decorate and personalize the house and garden.

Staff have been supporting the individuals to have weekly art classes and the pictures have then been displayed on the walls to brighten up the rooms.

Staff have also put together a project for the garden which involve the people we support to make the garden a more inviting and relaxing space.

The staff have shown passion and respect with the projects they are completing and how they are involving and benefitting the people we support.

Well done to the team!
