Independent Living communities

Our Independent Living communities offer people aged over 55 a chance to downsize and move into a social community with like-minded neighbours.

What are the benefits?

If you’ve been thinking about downsizing and would like to live somewhere with like-minded neighbours of a similar age to you, then our independent living homes may just be the perfect solution for you.  

The benefits of living in one of our Independent Living Communities include:

  • All our communities are secure and accessed using fobs or through the main electronic security door providing added peace of mind for our customers.
  • 24-hour emergency systems are set up in all our homes, so that emergency support is available around the clock should anyone need it.
  • On site facilities for your convenience such as on-site laundry rooms, communal lounges, kitchens.
  • Regular visits from our grounds maintenance teams to ensure your communal gardens are well taken care of.
  • On site Independent Living Advisors, offering solutions and support with day to day challenges you may experience.
  • Opportunities to socialise and be an active part of your community through a range of social groups and committees.
  • Access to a wide range of social activities and events on site and off.
  • Access to financial support and guidance when you need it.
  • Regular social events taking place throughout the week including day trips and activities like bingo in the main communal area.
