The Courtyard

The Courtyard is an imaginatively designed and conceived development of Care Housing offering full 24 hour care in your own home. There are both one and two bedroom bungalows and houses. A connecting corridor, via the back door, gives access to a dining room, where residents and their visitors may share a meal, a spacious lounge with conservatory and decking area overlooking an attractive landscaped pond. This corridor also enables staff to respond to calls via the Care Call system at any time, night or day.

All properties have a fitted kitchen complete with hob, built-in oven, extractor fan and space for a washer-dryer. Alternatively full laundry services are available.

Provision has been made in the two storey houses for the fitting of a stairlift or a through-the-floor lift to give access by foot or wheelchair to the first floor bedroom and shower room. The first floor bedroom would also make a comfortable en-suite guest room.

Front doors lead onto a level and secure paved courtyard area of attractive landscaping with planting areas.

Trained staff from the linked and connecting Chilton Court Care Home carry out all care requirements in your own home, when a care package is optioned, and are experienced in enabling residents to maintain their independence and retain their dignity.

There is a comprehensive range of shops nearby including a Post Office, all accessed via a short walk on a low traffic route. The local Leisure Centre with its many facilities including a swimming pool and indoor bowls is situated just a couple of hundred yards away.

Visitors to residents of The Courtyard are always welcome and may stay in our guest suite if they wish.
