For most of our Extra Care Housing estates we have agreements with the local authority to let a percentage of our vacant properties to people nominated by them. Hanover’s agreement for this estate is that all of the allocations are managed by the local authority, Tendring District Council, who can be contacted on 01255 686868.
There are 30 self-contained accessible apartments each with a bedroom, lounge and kitchen. There is an alarm call system linking each apartment to the site manager. The on-site care staff and the Hanover On Call alarm control centre provide help and assistance in the event of an emergency. Activities here include coffee mornings, outings and exercise classes.
On-site care provision by Social Services approved providers, includes a freshly cooked hot midday meal served in the dining room and weekly cleaning of the apartments. There are large courtyard gardens to the front and rear, with seats and a patio. They are tended by a gardener.
