A picture of Jules in the New Wycliffe Home Cyber Cafe.

New Wycliffe Home provides high quality residential care for older people with sight loss.

Jules has been supported by Vista for over a decade, following her diagnosis of a rare form of Glaucoma. She said “My sight gradually deteriorated, and for the last few years I have been completely blind.”

“My social worker felt that I would benefit from living in a residential home, so I moved into New Wycliffe in March 2016.”

Since moving into the home, Jules has taken part in a variety of activities. She said “There’s always something happening – I especially enjoy the entertainment events, such as 70s nights and tribute acts.”

Jules said “The home has a Cyber Café, which has encouraged me to write an autobiography. The staff are so supportive – I’ve been telling them about each chapter whilst they type it up for me. I’m really enjoying writing a book, and it’s helped me in a lot of ways.”

“The best thing about living at the home is the company – I love the other residents, they’re all such characters. The staff are lovely, and always there to help if I need them.”

Sherelee, Jules’ daughter, said “It’s great to see that Mum is so happy. New Wycliffe has such a homely environment, and we always feel welcome to visit as a family.”
