Independent Living

Your apartment

We have a range of modern one, two or three bed apartments, all with secure entry, their own front door, fully fitted kitchen and wet room bathroom – as well as an on-call system for added peace of mind.

Additionally, a 24-hour care service is available on site, for you now or in the future if your needs change.

Apartments are available through a mix of options, whether you are looking to buy (for individual or shared ownership), rent or lease.

How you furnish your apartment is up to you, so you’re free to put your own stamp on it. Friends and family are also welcome to visit or stay with you whenever you want – it’s your home after all.

Most of our developments also welcome pets, making it a real home for all your loved ones.

Your care

Additional personal care in your own home can be arranged daily to help with things like washing and dressing or support with medication. General help around the house is also available from as little as two or three hours a week to as much time as you need.

This can include everything from household chores, cleaning and ironing to help with domestic affairs like bill paying, private maintenance or visiting local shops.

Ultimately, you will have the time to enjoy later life in your own home – all within a community where you can make friends and get to know like-minded people in a caring, safe, and supportive environment.
