Recently refurbished, the service provides a comfortable home for four individuals. All bedrooms are en-suite and there is a pleasant lounge, dinning room and outdoor seating area.

With a person centred approach, the focus is very much on supporting individual’s bespoke needs and helping them to live a meaningful, fulfilling life. The team actively encourage people to enjoy activities and hobbies of their choice within the local community, as independently as possible. This includes attending the gym, swimming pool, cinema, ten pin bowling and being part of the community.

There are good links to public transport with a train station and bus route a short walk away and the service also has its own transport.

Individuals are involved in the running of the home whether it be re-decorating, helping with the weekly shopping or suggesting menu choices.

Developing daily living skills such as cooking and cleaning is also a key focus to help build confidence and greater independence and the team also support people to manage their finances.

Local work and volunteer opportunities are actively encouraged and many individuals also actively raise funds for local charities.

There are regular parties and open days at Holland House, which individuals enjoy planning and hosting.

Family and friends always receive a warm welcome.

“The transformation in [Name’s] quality of life is absolutely incredible, [Name] was almost housebound, they had significant life-threatening healthcare needs before moving to the home. The fantastic support [Name] has received has quite literally saved their life. [Name] now leads a very full and active lifestyle. [Name] loves horses and now goes horse riding and they join in with the numerous activities that are provided.”

“[Name] is so much more relaxed now, they always have 1-1 staff support when they go outside of the home. I have no qualms at all about their safety.”

“The staff are fantastic, they are extremely skilled in caring for people with PWS, [Name’s] quality of life has improved dramatically since moving into the home. The staff go with [Name] to all their health appointments and they always provide feedback to us.”

“[Name] needs to have tight controls in place to limit their access to food. The kitchen is kept locked, and this gives [Name] peace of mind that the temptation to overeat is removed.”
