I had agonised about Robert’s future and wondered what would happen if he remained living with me until I died or became incapable of looking after him. However, with TLC he is able to live like any other man of his age, with his peers in a β€œlads’ pad”. He is able to access places and activities that he would not with me. His social skills and communication have improved and now he does not rely on me to anticipate his needs. I thought he would find it hard moving away but to see him now, I know he is in the right place, receiving the right level of care and living his life to the full. I could not be more grateful.

I have lived at Donyland Lodge for a year and love it! Staff support is excellent, enabling me to live an independent, fulfilling and worthwhile life. My apartment is beautiful and I have my own garden to tend. I am encouraged to follow my hobbies of photography, gardening, sightseeing and walking. I regularly access the community and have tried and enjoyed many new experiences. I am supported to make my own choices and decisions. My confidence has grown and I feel able to lead the life I desire.

Resident, Donyland Lodge


I can tell you in my son’s case, you are doing a superb job, especially for this last year.
 Listening to the people who are close to him made a lot of difference. When something is not right, they will sense it better than anyone else. That is what made the difference in my son’s case.
