In 2012, Iris used to live in a large house in Burton (on the next street to where Chestnut Grange is situated).
Iris actually watched the supported accommodation being built and when she realised that the house she lived in was too large and Iris started to feel isolated, she saw Chestnut Grange was being advertised and decided to put her name down for a flat. Iris hasn’t looked back since and is a shared owner at Chestnut Grange.
As Iris lived in a large house on her own, she often felt very lonely. Now living in Chestnut Grange, Iris takes part in all of the communal activities including her favourite one – Bingo! Unfortunately Iris does not go on any of the outings as she suffers from bad arthritis and can not move around too easily. Despite this, Iris is very happy and says that Chestnut Grange is ideal for her.
