Friars Close is a welcoming home providing a range of services for adults with learning and physical disabilities.
Our home is a large detached house in a quiet residential area of Dorchester, the county town of Dorset. We are near to the seaside resort of Weymouth — site of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic sailing events.
The countryside around our home is picturesque and we are an easy drive from the Jurassic Coast and other attractions in Wiltshire, Hampshire and Devon.
Our residents make sure their home has a friendly atmosphere. At their request we offer a wide range of activities including swimming, cart-riding, boat trips, trampolining, shopping, eating out and visits to places of interest. We also enjoy holding events in the home such as parties, discos, music nights and film afternoons.
Our fully-trained staff work hard to ensure everyone is happy in their home. We pride ourselves on putting our residents first and we support everybody to be independent and to take part in community activities as they wish.
