In May 2020, Care delivered a new-build development of properties in North Lincolnshire that was some 2 years in the making. The properties consist of a block of 12 specialist supported living apartments, plus 8 apartments across 3 enhanced, specialist supported living bungalows. Each apartment has its own front door, a bedroom, a bathroom/wet room, plus an open plan lounge/kitchen/diner. In addition to this there are private gardens and the advantage of assistive technology throughout.
Care and North Lincolnshire Council have been working together to ensure the properties were suitable to meet the significant demand for supported living in the area. The Council has been involved from the planning stage to ensure we are able to deliver a bespoke, sustainable and high-quality solution. Care continue to work with North Lincolnshire Council to make sure everything over and above the ‘bricks and mortar’, from furniture to specialist hoists, is ready for our tenants to move in smoothly.
Creative Support have been awarded the contract to provide background support to all our tenants in the properties, in addition to personalised support for some. Creative Support have also been instrumental in ensuring the environment is perfect to enable the tenants to live happy lives as independently as possible.
We ensure we adopt this collaborative approach on all our developments and welcome input from care providers, commissioning teams, families, representatives and of course (and more importantly) tenants themselves. Whilst we believe we are experts in providing high quality, sustainable properties, we know we can’t do this alone and place a great deal of importance in feedback and input from our partners.
