Great response to new extra care housing scheme
The show apartment at Maes y Dderwen extra care housing scheme is now available to book a visit
A series of drop-in information events next week for people wanting to find out more about the new extra care in Grosvenor Road, Wrexham, has been welcomed by Cllr Joan Lowe Wrexham County Borough Council’s Lead Member for Health and Adult Social Care
The £10.5 m Maes y Dderwen extra care scheme is specifically designed for local people aged 60 or over who wish to live independently in a home of their own with the peace of mind of 24-hour access to care support.
The scheme is a partnership development between Wrexham County Borough Council, The Welsh Government and Tŷ Glas Housing Society, part of the Pennaf Housing Group and anyone interested in the new apartments either for themselves or for a family member, can call in to meet the team who are hosting information events at the Wrexham Museum in Regent Street daily from March 13 to 17 where there will also be the opportunity to arrange a visit to the new show apartment at the scheme.
“The scheme is an excellent option for people who have a care or support need, yet wish to retain the independence of living in a home of their own, and it’s great that the new development will be open this summer,” said Councillor Lowe.
Carol Thomas, Extra Care Manager for the Pennaf Housing Group added:
“We’ve already received many applications from people who want to live at the Maes y Dderwen scheme, however there is still a chance to apply, subject to certain criteria, and we’re looking forward to meeting more potential new applicants or their family members at the information events”.
“The scheme will cater for people with a wide range of care and support needs, from those who need just a few hours of support a week to those with higher needs who may be considering moving to a residential care home.”
The drop-in information sessions at the Wrexham Museum will be held from 10.30 am – 4 pm on March 13; 10.00am – 4 pm on March 14,15 and 16 and from 11.30 am – 2.30 pm on Saturday March 17.
Anyone unable to attend but interested in finding out more can call 0800 183 5757 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Maes y Dderwen is funded jointly by Welsh Government Social Housing Grant and Vibrant and Viable Places Funding secured in partnership with Wrexham County Borough Council along with private finance arranged by the Pennaf Housing Group.
