Set walking distance from the Richmond town centre, 378 is a busy and bustling environment for residents. With 2 newly built homes – ‘Villa Laguna’ – a 2 bedroom villa and ‘Aylesby’- a 3 bedroom villa.
Thanks to the fantastic support system provided by family members, a friendly and accepting community environment and New Haven Farm Home, all residents are continually learning new skills, trying new activities, engaging in their individual hobbies and interests, and growing and building on their independence.
Individuals are involved in their care, the activities they would like to participate in, skills they would like to learn and develop and their day to day activities, helping them to build skills to assist them in independent living and decision making.
The residents of 378 are very active in the local community through employment and day programs, recreational activities and the participation in general living skills such as shopping, banking, social groups and programs and attending local events.
Each Friday morning, Shaun can be found helping the team at Gloria Jeans in the Windsor Riverview shopping centre as part of his work experience. Shaun is very dedicated to his role, wiping and clearing tables and unstacking the dishwasher with the help of his New Haven Farm Home support worker.
Thanks to the Gloria Jean’s team, Shaun has been supported in his work experience at their cafe for the last 6 months. He enjoys his work and takes great pride in his role, learning new skills and being an active member of our community
