Our Independent Living Schemes are ideal for older people who can manage in their own home, but need a little support to help them stay independent.

What facilities are available?

All our independent schemes come with the following facilities for your safety and comfort:

  • Your own private flat or bungalow with bedroom, lounge, kitchen and bathroom/wet room
  • Central heating
  • Modern scheme manager call equipment
  • 24 hour response monitoring from either a scheme manager or warden call service
  • High-tech equipment to meet your individual needs
  • Door entry system to schemes
  • Fully integrated fire alarm system monitored 24 hours a day
  • Communal lounge and laundry facilities


Is Independent Living with Support right for you?

  • Independent Living is right for you if you just need some assistance to be able to live independently
  • Independent Living Schemes are not nursing or care homes – if you need full time support, then it is not the right option for you
  • You will have a nominated scheme manager and they will attend every scheme, every day
  • Your scheme manager will help you maintain your tenancy and provide you with advice and guidance on any support needs
  • A control centre, which operates 24 hours a day will respond to you and help you if the scheme manager is not on site
  • Outside of working hours, you can choose who will help you – either a mobile warden service, or your friends and family
  • Some of the technology you can have if you need it includes fall detectors, door openers and flood detectors
  • All of the schemes have a range of activities for the people who live there so you can join in and feel less isolated
  • All schemes have communal gardens which you are encouraged to use
  • Some schemes have specialist assistive bathing facilities which your carers can access with you if needed
