Following a lengthy discharge from hospital, Enoch moved into Fritham Lodge in October 2010. Enoch had been extremely keen to move into a community placement and to get on planning his future.
He said: “As soon as I moved in to Fritham, I felt more relaxed, less stressed and my mental health has stabilised. After being in hospital for 11 years, this has been a very good experience for me. The staff at Fritham Lodge are fantastic and in a society that can be very uncaring, they are kind and helpful”. Enoch went on to describe Choice Care Group as a ‘very professional outfit’.
“In society, life can be very stressful but I now feel so good, I don’t want to use alcohol or drugs and I even intend to give up smoking.”
Enoch has decorated his room very tastefully and it is a relaxing space for him to practice his many talents and interests which including holistic health, spiritualism and music.
For now, Enoch wants to enjoy his stay at Fritham lodge and continue with the excellent progress he has made so far. His future hopes and plans are to move to Abbeyfield Lodge in Fleet, a home with lower levels of support in preparation for him eventually moving on in to his own tenancy or his own personal choice – a tepee in Canada!
Enoch is a charismatic and very interesting man and Choice Care Group very much welcomes the opportunity to support him in achieving his goals.
