A home from home 

Set in the grounds of the Old Bingley Hospital overlooking Aire Valley, our innovative new development offers Independent Living with Extra Care Apartments, as well as a Residential Unit supporting individuals living with dementia. Our apartments provide residents the privacy of their own affordable, high quality accommodation, combined with the companionship of others.

Time to enjoy

We offer a range of activities that are organised by the Activities Co-ordinator in conjunction with the volunteers. A whole host of communal facilities will be open to our residents and their families and friends. We will also be welcoming the local and wider community into the scheme to socialise with our residents whilst utilising our facilities – making it a true hub in the heart of the community.

Our onsite activities co-ordinator arranges a number of activities on a regular basis and throughout the year we partake in many events including Abbeyfield Week, Strawberry Fair, Christmas Fair and lots more!

Our Community hub will be open to community groups within Bingley and the surrounding area. This will give access to a dining restaurant, a range of activities and the opportunity to socialise making it a true hub in the heart of the community.

We also have a host of onsite facilities including a hair and beauty salon, spa rooms and assisted bathing, hobby and games rooms, secure outdoor communal areas and even an onsite shop.


Although there are cooking facilities within the apartments, included in the rental payment are two meals per day. A three-course hot lunch with a meat, fish and vegetarian option each day and a two-course light tea all served in our communal restaurant.

Both hot and cold breakfast options are served in the communal restaurant each day at an additional cost.
