Supported living make-over is a hit

Bedrooms and communal areas in supported living accommodation in Bootle have received tailor-made makeovers in response to service user requests for their rooms to be more colourful and personalised.

Designs for Prescott House range from an Abba theme to London Transport and Disney characters.

Team Leader Stacy Feerick said: “This demonstrates how important it is to truly listen to our service users. Staff have worked tirelessly to ensure that each person picked their own designs and that the work didn’t interfere with the support we give.”

“The plans have been in the pipeline for a while and we’re delighted that the gents are really pleased. We are now in the process of developing a sensory garden space and sensory tactile wall space indoors.”

“A big thank you to all the staff team, contracted and casual, from Prescott House. It’s been like a military operation ensuring that wall drying times were planned with one-to-one support out in the community. It is still a work in progress. We have a lot more to achieve but main thing is that the gentleman really enjoy their bespoke rooms, as do the staff.”

The next plan is to create sensory walls in the lounge.

Prescott House is a supported living service for five males with learning disabilities.
