Moving on up at Mansfield House!

There’s plenty of excitement in Kirkcudbright at the moment, as the residents at Mansfield House prepare for their big move into their brand-new home!

Heather Birnie, Home Manager at Mansfield House, a residential service for older adults with learning disabilities, has been busy keeping us up to speed on how the new development is going!

“This move is a huge step for the people we support at Mansfield House – some of whom have lived here for over 30 years – but it’s one we’re all really excited about. For the first time in their lives, the people we support will be tenants in their own homes, but not just any homes! They’re moving into purpose-built apartments that are kitted out with the most modern and flexible assistive technologies – the environment is going to be absolutely incredible.”

“We’ve worked really closely with Dumfries & Galloway Council and our local Housing Association to make sure that everything is tailored perfectly to the needs of the people we support. The best bit about it all is that the new apartments are a stone’s throw from Mansfield House, so the guys can remain valued members of the community they know and love.”

“It’s been a long process, but we’re all geared up to pack our bags and up sticks in July – and we’re counting down the days!”
