    Independent retirement living with care and peace of mind

    Close care accommodation (sometimes known as Assisted or Independent Living) gives residents the freedom and independence of living in their own homes, but the security and peace of mind that comes with having professional care and assistance on their doorstep. Everyone is free to look after themselves and live their own lives, but should any help be needed then professional staff and excellent facilities are on hand 24 hours a day to provide a tailored service.

    Sometimes it’s nice to have some help, even with the chores you can handle, but would rather leave to someone else, such as cleaning, laundry and buying food. This leaves you free to enjoy your retirement.

    With Close care, you can be sure of maintaining your independence for as long as possible, with a gradual increase in the level of care as needed. Ultimately this could mean moving across into the nursing home itself, where complete nursing care is available. Of course, it’s also possible for one half of a partnership to stay in their Close care property while the other moves into the nursing home. With everyone living in the same community there’s continuity of care and a sense of living in the same place, which makes the process of change much easier to deal with.

    The sense of community is an essential part of care, but it’s not compulsory. Our Close care properties can be used as separate independent homes, or as part of the community, with its social and care facilities.
