A mobile library calls at the bungalow once a month.

Across all our schemes we like to help create a strong sense of community, and we do this by bringing together like-minded people through our programme of regular activities. Residents can enjoy bingo, attend coffee mornings, or take part in quiz nights or monthly social outings.


Falcon Drive has been designed to accommodate a wide range of people’s needs. As well as handrails, it also has disabled access.


At Falcon Drive support is available when you need it. With an experienced Community Support Worker and our Care Link system installed in every home as standard, residents can live with the peace of mind that in the event of an emergency, support can be summoned immediately. Residents will receive the same service 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all year round from WDH. Residents can also tailor the support they receive to suit them, just speak to your Community Support Worker about what suits you and your lifestyle.


We know that your security is a priority, and that’s why Care Link are on hand at the touch of a button should you need to report anything.
