Cherry Orchard House provides a mix of 52 affordable one and two-bedroom apartments, plus one bungalow supporting older and younger people who may live with dementia, learning disabilities, autistic spectrum disorder or sensory impairments.
The development, designed with the assistance of the residents, provides lovely views over the Avon Meadows Community Wetlands and boasts many on-site facilities including a restaurant, bird watching room, salon, garden and activities rooms which are available to residents, their friends and families and the general community.
Regular resident-led activities and groups run each week – such as bowling, darts, knit and natter, art sessions, bingo and coffee mornings. There are even weekly visits from the local first school, who take part in activities with the residents.
Residents are able to visit the bustling town, which for most, is within walking distance of the scheme. As an independent living scheme, residents are able to come and go as they please but they have the peace of mind that there is always someone available, should they need assistance.
For those residents who require support, our care workers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, helping residents to retain as much independence as possible, for as long as possible. Care is tailored to the needs of each person, provided within their own home and can range from a little help daily to support throughout the day and night time.
Working in close partnership with Rooftop Housing Group housing association and local volunteers, we ensure high quality independent living for the residents of this scheme.
