Independent living for print people in retirement

Located in Basildon and Bletchley, our sheltered homes offer one-bedroom, self-contained apartments for people in their retirement years.

The purpose-built homes offer a supportive, safe and affordable environment where you can live independently, with the option to get involved in regular organised events with your fellow neighbours.

We moved in after struggling to cope at our former family home. We absolutely love it as we are still doing what we like to do and enjoy the independent living, especially knowing there is a helping hand close by.
