In January 2018 The Disability Trust opened a new group home for four movie loving residents. The residents share many common interests but their love of movies was apparent when they combined their DVD collections to make a mammoth wall of DVD selections and now they enjoy movie nights regularly.
Three of the residents were living independently and each was struggling for different reasons to be able to maintain their independence. The fourth resident was living with her family and they were looking for a place that would continue to give her the opportunities to access the community and live in a homely supportive environment. She is now an active participant in the home and is able to maintain her friendships in the community and spend quality time with her family.
Since moving into the home all the residents are happier, healthier, more relaxed and have developed strong friendships.
