The flats benefit from double glazing, central heating, smoke alarms and a TV aerial point. They all have a fitted kitchen with a small electric cooker provided. They are also decorated throughout with your own choice of carpets and vinyl flooring where appropriate.
The modern communal areas have been newly decorated with complimentary carpets, curtains and seating and the lounges and communal kitchen can be used by all the residents.
Various activities are held in the communal lounge including coffee mornings, bingo and days out. The lounges can also be used for individual or group celebrations such as parties. Residents have the choice of getting as involved as they wish to in these activities.
Communal grounds are maintained by the council leaving you to enjoy without worrying about weeding and mowing the lawns. The grounds can also be a setting for getting together and enjoying the sunshine.
There are on site laundry facilities a lift for access to all floors and a guest room which can be used by relatives visiting. All the schemes have free parking for residents and visitors.
Charges may vary depending on your support charge which has 4 levels of support. There will also be a cost if you are having domiciliary care services provided. If you have care needs it may be possible for you to get help with these costs
