MP praises home for promoting independent living

Weston’s MP, John Penrose, has visited residents of the Locking Deanery’s charitable supported housing provider, Clarence House.

The home, in Clarence Road North, is designed for people over 60 who are able to live by themselves but would like their main meal provided each day.

After a recent visit to speak with residents, Weston MP John Penrose said how impressed he was by the home. He said: “It was great to hear from residents how Clarence House has helped them avoid isolation and loneliness, and to live independently for longer because they don’t have to struggle with everyday tasks on their own anymore.

“Equally importantly, staff and management gave me an insight into the business pressures smaller supported housing schemes are facing. Everyone wants places like Clarence House to keep providing this kind of care for our parents and, in due course, for ourselves as well.”
