Meet 90 year-old Joe, who along with others in our Residential Enablement Service at Medlock Court has been making boxes for a lucky dip!

Joe used to be a telephone engineer and was a dab hand at painting and decorating too, he tells us.

He was offered some help, but he refused saying “I want to do it on my own!” and low and behold, we have our lucky dip boxes.

Top man Joe - your smile and attitude is encouraging to everyone around you.


Our Residential Enablement Service at Medlock Court cares for people who can be discharged from hospital but aren’t yet ready to go home and can assist people to regain the skills needed to live as independently as possible and increase confidence in their own abilities.

Equally the service can provide a period of intensive assessment and rehabilitation to prevent hospital admissions.

If you would like to know more about the service, then don't hesitate to get in touch! Our friendly team are at the end of the phone and can’t wait to help.
