New Extra Care Housing for over 55’s launches in Yatton
The council are working with Housing 21 to build Strawberry Gardens, an Extra Care Housing development in Yatton, which opens in spring 2020. The scheme will have 60 two-bedroom apartments; 30 apartments for shared ownership and 30 for rental through the council.
Extra Care Housing is for people 55 years and over who have housing and care needs. Schemes are made up of individual flats with communal facilities. A professional care team has a 24-hour care presence to deliver planned care and emergency response if needed.
The flats have bedroom/s, lounge, kitchen and bathroom. The communal facilities normally include a residents lounge, restaurant/dining room, laundry room, scooter store, hairdressing/beauty salon, assisted bathing facility and guest room with en-suite for visiting family and friends. Schemes are wheelchair accessible.
For the new Extra Care Housing development Housing 21 will be hosting several information events during the build process which will be held at Yatton Rugby Club, Yatton, BS49 4BR.
The first of these was held on Thursday 4 July,
The purpose of the event is to;
- Inform people of the build progress.
- Give people an opportunity to find out about the Extra Care way of life.
- Meet the Scheme Manager.
People will be given an opportunity to keep in touch after the event through an online community and/or sign up for newsletters.
