Resident story: Doris Trowell

13 February 2019

East London-born Doris Trowell has made some life-long friends since moving into Sanctuary Retirement Living’s Millbrook House in Soham.

Doris enjoys going along to the different clubs and activities on offer at the service. She also loves having an apartment to call her own alongside the extensive communal areas, where her three children, six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren can visit in comfort.

She said: “My little apartment is just enough for me and is the right size to keep nice and tidy.

“It’s just perfect. I’m so glad I chose to live at Millbrook House, it’s really clean and lovely.”

The other residents at Millbrook House mean a lot to Doris, and she and her friends have come together to form a real community.

Doris commented: “Everyone is very happy here, I’ve made some lovely friends. We all keep an eye on each other.”
