So, what is Independent Living?
Our Independent Living communities provide customers with the opportunity to connect with other people and improve your wellbeing by giving you a safe and secure, serviced home. Communal living for older adults gives a sense physical, emotional, and economic security, as well as reduced social isolation. We look forward to sharing some stories with you this month so you can see this for yourselves.
We look after the care and maintenance of your home, so it can free you up to spend your time doing the things you really love and with a wide range of housing solutions to suit everyone, you can feel happy and proud in the place you call home.
For those already in our schemes, or those thinking of making the move, we have many resources for you. Visit our Good Neighbour webpage where you can:
