Two friends are celebrating leaving residential care in Carmarthenshire to live independently in a seaside village in Ceredigion.
The pair moved to Caeronnen, our new supported living service in Llangrannog, in October last year and are enjoying being part of the local community.
“They have both settled down brilliantly and progressed really well in a very short space of time,” said Katie Owen who leads the team at Caeronnen.
“We have witnessed their confidence growing week by week as, between them, they have taken seaside walks, joined a judo club, visited the cinema as well as taking part in quizzes and discos at a local social club for people with a learning disability.
Katie says that they are both now very sociable and enjoy interacting with staff during activity sessions. Both men are supported to go to the shops to do their food shopping and go out on daily walks with staff in the local countryside.
Caeronnen supports individuals with autism, learning difficulties, mental health issues and people living with an acquired brain injury.
The property is a detached bungalow and is split into two accommodation areas. Every person who lives there has their own room and shared use of the communal facilities.
The service currently has a vacancy. For further information contact locality manager: Julie Davies on: 07885 998254 click the link to the Caeronnen page below
