Why I like living at Calvert House

“I have learned to walk and cook for myself and I manage my anger with staff support and I also manage my money”
“There is always help at hand, I get on with everyone and feel safe.”
“I can deal with my anger more and I have staff that understand me. I can talk to them about anything and I feel more confident.”
“I have my own room here and my daughter can visit where she couldn’t in my last place, I can have as much or as little support as I want.”
