Parents on a Mission
Forty years ago, opening care homes didn’t figure in our lives. Then when Laura was 6 months old we were told:
“Your daughter is mentally handicapped, she might live, or might not – we don’t really know and, by the way, good luck.”
Later, when Laura’s specialist residential college placement was ending, our quest for residential care showed us how poor many services were. Environments were lacking and residents had no sense of purpose. Doing nothing was never an option and so in 2004 we created Home From Home Care.
We are driven by wanting to make the difference and setting high standards in everything we provide – from the design and layout of a home, to the colour of the curtains. Creating a warm and homely environment is just the start – it is the quality of the care & support that is essential to delivering fulfilled lives for all our sons and daughters.
