Selwood Housing is creating new homes specially designed for the older population of Westbury.
The exciting new development at Bell Orchard will see 11 new spacious and accessible apartments created with 24/7 emergency support and communal facilities, allowing residents to live safely and independently whilst remaining part of a community.
This is the first affordable extra care scheme to come to Westbury, and Selwood Housing are looking forward to offering the homes to those who are looking to settle into a comfortable and contented retirement in Westbury.
The scheme, which is being built in partnership with Wiltshire Council, will help to meet the needs of a growing and aspirational older population. The scheme will be supported by Somerset Care.
Barry Hughes, Selwood Housing Group chief executive commented, “The project is an exciting opportunity to meet the needs of the existing and future older population of Westbury through various models of support.
“The communal lounge will become a community hub, providing opportunities to bring older people together. This will help prevent social isolation and enable people to live in their own homes for longer.
“Selwood Housing is committed to helping tenants live independently in their own homes. Extra care is a real alternative to residential care – it provides the right living environment and services so tenants can carry on enjoying their independence and living a full life.
“Work began on site in August 2015, and we expect the new extra care development to be completed by March 2016. It is anticipated that new residents, who will be agreed by Wiltshire Council and Somerset Care, will move into the scheme from April 2016 onwards.”
