Ettington Lodge, our new newest independent living with care scheme located in Wellesbourne, Warwickshire, is now being advertised for rent through Home Choice Plus (www.homechoiceplus.org.uk).
Available late in April 2018, the scheme consists of 40 one and two bedroom apartments and ten two bedroom bungalows.
Independent living with care is the term used to describe housing schemes with a number of self-contained apartments which incorporate design features to allow residents to live independently. Not to be confused with retirement homes and care homes, the focus of independent living with care is to allow customers to remain independent for as long as possible; should the day arrive when a level of care is required, the scheme is flexible enough to be able to offer that care.
Independent living with care schemes gives customers security and privacy, with a range of conveniences to make their lives more comfortable. People living in independent living with care schemes have the choice of getting involved in social activities or living life more privately.
“Independent living with care housing is about living at home, not in a home” – Tim Willis of Warwickshire County Council’s Extra Care Task Force.
People over age 55 can apply by bidding on properties advertised through Home Choice Plus. Contact Stratford District Council (Phone 01789 260861/2) or email: firstname.lastname@example.org for details of how to register and bid.
