We have delivered a wide range of award-winning third age homes projects for older people which includes self-contained apartments, private retirement communities, sheltered housing and extra care homes. Our in-house community liaison teams provide the necessary support, where residents remain in occupation, and organise social events to make the experience positive. We work to HAPPI principles and incorporate best practice from the National Housing Federation and Joseph Rowntree Foundation, together with specialist guidance for those with disabilities. Our homes are designed to incorporate all necessary access arrangements to Lifetime Homes Standards, including level door thresholds, wide doorways and corridors to accommodate wheelchairs and colour coordinated floors to aid orientation.
“The most innovative element of the design is putting a really good extra care scheme in a development with other age groups” Richard Blakeway, Deputy Mayor for Housing, Land and Property
