I continually see people come through our door who have been in hospital or have been very lonely in their own homes for a considerable amount of time with maybe their only human contact in a day being two visits from the care agency.
Folks are often worried about losing their independence. Fortunately, these people realise after a week or so in Hollymead how different life can be! I like to think that we give people new beginnings as well as preserve and promote them to be more independent.
Our residents here will tell you themselves that this is true. We’re very passionate and driven to ensure that people are not only safe here but that they live life to the full. The best job satisfaction for me is to have one of my residents sit down to tell me how good their experience is at Hollymead and how glad they are that they came here!
