Rachel got a new start when she was offered a home at our extra-care scheme Ryde Village, Isle of Wight.

Before moving in, she was suffering with terrible grief and loneliness after losing two of her neighbours.

Now she’s a regular at activities organised by the Village, and she enjoys dancing and spending time with new friends during the monthly visit to nearby Fever nightclub.

She’s also performed with theatre group First Act, starring as Belle in their production of Beauty and the Beast.

My life has got a lot better since moving to Ryde Village. The staff are so helpful and generous, and they help me a lot. I feel very safe at night and I sleep better now I’m here. I love going out for trips with everyone on the minibus, especially Fever once a month. Ryde Village is a happy place.
