Accomodation for over 55's

We have changed the way we offer services to our older customers and have extended it so more customers can benefit.

Extra Care Accommodation

An Extra Care development enables older people to enjoy a healthier, active and more independent lifestyle in a community that represent a modern alternative to the traditional care or nursing home.

Naughton Fields

In 2012 we built our flagship extra care scheme, Naughton Fields, in Widnes.

The development consists of 47 two bedroom apartments and is available for people over 55. The scheme has support on site as well as a bistro, hair salon and a number of communal facilities such as landscaped gardens and a comfy living room.  Watch the video above for further information.

*Final apartments remaining*

Our second extra care opened in April 2016.  The £6 million development offers 50 apartments – 32 will be allocated for social housing rent, 12 for shared ownership and six for outright sale, whilst five supported bungalows are also on site.

Located on Ashley Green (off Dundalk Road) in Widnes, the development offers similar facilities to Naughton Fields, with its own bistro, communal areas and activity room offering a range of social activities and events.
