Catherine and Lisa Blue Hair

Catherine moved into Mountain Ash in April 2017. Prior to this she lived at home with her parents and siblings and so it was anticipated by all who knew her that the transition into residential care in her 30’s would be a significant challenge for her.

Since moving in to Mountain Ash Catherine has gained 2.4 kilos, which is a huge achievement for her as previously there were concerns around her eating. She has settled very well and enjoys most activities, particularly participating in music sessions. She even has her favourite member of staff, who she calls 'Lisa Blue Hair'.

Catherine is visibly happy and proudly shows visitors her bedroom, which has been accessorised with her favourite colour purple.

In her recent review, Catherine's parents described what a tough decision it had been for her to leave the family home, but they are now so pleased that she is happy at Mountain Ash and feel that they have made the right decision. They also said how welcome they are made to feel whenever they visit and have even started referring to Catherine's favourite staff member as ‘Lisa Blue Hair’ too.

We have one vacancy at Mountain Ash and it would be suitable for an individual with a profound and multiple physical and learning disability who would like to live in a homely and relaxed environment with others. The home has its own hydrotherapy pool, which staff are trained to support individuals to use and it also has a sensory room.
