There is a new SACARE accommodation that's recently opened up in Kilburn and we're loving the vibe! Whilst it still is in the process of getting renovations,
a new garden, and of course a barbecue, the 5 residents who previously came from Clifford House are already settling in quite nicely (including a 11
week old pug who belongs to Alyson, the accommodation manager!). What's the best part of the accommodation? The name - Eutopia Rise!
Paul Beaven, a Support Worker at SACARE who recently just won the award "Support Worker of the Year for Supported Independent Living", explained the naming
process, "We wanted to create a fun naming process for everyone here at Kilburn. We started by putting "Happy" in the thesaurus and went from there!
Things got a bit silly, we added fun and humour into the naming process, one of the guys thought “Bum Rise” would be funny, so we imagined a huge bum
at the entrance of the driveway. Obviously we didn't go for this, but what a great laugh we had... I think laughter is the best medicine! It was John
who came up with the name "Eutopia". John is a very intelligent and knowledgeable guy, he is always reading and knows a lot on a bit of everything.
He’s very good at saying the right things at the right time.
"I chose Eutopia because that's how I felt at that time... Perfect! Eutopia Rise is a good place! I really like Eutopia Rise because I'm feeling
more independent and can have really good one on one support when I need it."

As our values say, "Our clients are the centre of everything we do..."
We wish everyone at Eutopia Rise a smooth and happy time settling in and look forward to the house warming!
