The schemes all have a variety of communal facilities including lounges, dining rooms and gardens to support activities and create vibrant communities. They also include:

  • Security entry phone and CCTV
  • Lift to all floors
  • Level access showers or wet rooms
  • Fully wheelchair accessible flats. Some flats are wheelchair adapted.
  • Guest room
  • Laundry facilities
  • Hairdressing salon
  • Assisted bathing room
  • Mobility scooter storage and charging

Service charges apply at each scheme for the use of these facilities, many of which are eligible for Housing Benefit.

Is this type of housing for you?

It could suit you if:

  • You receive home care services or have been assessed as needing personal care
  • You have changing care needs
  • You want to live in a home of your own but with care and support when you need it
  • You want to plan for a future where your care needs may change
  • You are over 55 years old with care needs or have a disability with care needs

Care does not cover nursing or specific medical care; it will help you with bathing or washing, getting you up and dressed, managing your prescription medication or perhaps assisting you with meal preparation.
