Residents at St Bridget's celebrate diamond jubilee with greater independence
16 July 2015
We are pleased to announce that we have recently opened a refurbished flat supporting independent living at St Bridget’s.
The accommodation enables disabled people to learn how to live more independent lives. With the latest equipment and facilities adapted for disabled people, the flat has private kitchens and bathrooms, allowing disabled people to cook meals, wash and dress without assistance.
The work was completed in time for the home's diamond jubilee celebrations, which gave even more reason to enjoy the week of anniversary festivities for the hundreds of people who attended.
During preparations for the 60th anniversary, we also uncovered some great pictures of the opening of the home.
‘The games and activities we organised were a particular success, with everyone attending commenting on how much they enjoyed themselves.’
The project to refurbish the flat was supported by a grant from the Monday Charitable Trust and the accessible kitchens were donated and fitted by Howdens Joinery.
‘Disabled people will find the flat offers a chance to learn new skills, gain confidence and have an excellent quality of life.’
