Describe what life was like and the difficulties you were encountering before you discovered Village 135.
I lived in a 4-bedroom house, but with various circumstances surrounding my illness, I was in fact confined to one room. I hadn't been able to get upstairs for over 3 years, I couldn't go out into the garden and because of a sloping drive, I was stuck unless someone pushed me up in my wheelchair. So, the house was impractical and a complete waste of space.

What did Village 135 offer that appealed to you or solved these difficulties?
The fact that everything is on one level will really help with mobility. Having no steps to contend with and lifts will make it easy for me to have a change of environment and not be cooped up in one room. I actually chose a space on the 7th floor, excited by the complete change of perspective – I can see all over Wythenshawe.

From a practical point of view, I have been able to adjust the specifications of my living space, so I elected for hard floors to make manoeuvring in my wheelchair much easier. The wet room allows me to have showers and I like the fact that I will have access to assisted bathing several times a year.

Knowing the district nurses are just across the road is reassuring, as is the security aspect. As you get older and start to feel more vulnerable, security becomes a real concern, so it's good to feel safe and protected.


What did you look forward to and in reality what is Village 135 life like?
I couldn't wait to feel the freedom I once had but for so long have been denied. It's been out of my control until now so, knowing I can do these things, is tremendous, its had a big impact on my life.

I am enjoying meeting new people and the community activities; there seems so much to do, especially with the college across the road. I enjoy art classes so am hoping a few of us can get together, use of one these community rooms and set one up!


Would you recommend Village 135 to others? If so, why?
I was inspired to look for somewhere new and had started to look at bungalows. But then I came across Village 135, made some enquiries and never looked back!
