Independent living gets the thumbs up from Goldcrest House

After living at Goldcrest House for over five years Goldcrest House says good luck to Pete and Joe as they move on to a new independent chapter of their lives.

 

Good friends Pete and Joe left the residential care of Goldcrest House three years ago where they were supported with daily visits to live independently in their own home in the local community.

Now three years on the pair are no longer in need of professional support to live a full and enabled life. Both flourishing and living life on their own terms Goldcrest House recognised it was time to cut the apron strings knowing they were no longer needed.

“Now they lead and enjoy a rich and varied life. Pete now spends time with his family and Joe is hoping to get a place of his own. We’re sad we won’t be seeing them but incredibly proud of them both and wish them all the happiness and success for the future.”

Jessica Nolan, Senior Social Worker says: “It was wonderful to be able to see how far they have both come during their time supported by Goldcrest House. Peter and Joe were extremely complimentary of the support Goldcrest have provided, and particularly that from support worker Dan. It was clear to see the brilliant working relationship Dan has formed with Peter and Joe and the genuine care and support he has for them.”
