Published by Rob Ghosh for Hanover Housing Group in Housing
A new £12.5 million extra care housing development for older people in Bromley is already proving to be a real hit when it threw open its doors to welcome older people and local dignitaries for a special open day on Friday 10 August.
Hanover director Claire Anderson was joined by the Mayor and Mayoress, of Bromley Council, Cllr and Mrs. Michael Turner as building developer, Asprey Homes, presented them with the key to the door of Regency Court, Bromley.
Regency Court has been developed by Hanover, a leading retirement housing provider, in partnership with Bromley Council and the Homes and Communities Agency.
The new estate has a range of facilities for older people including modern spacious properties, the Hanover estate manager service and the reassurance of care provided on-site 24/7. Each of Regency Court’s 42 one and 18 two bedroom properties has modern fitted kitchens and level-access showers. All residents have access to the 24/7 ‘Hanover on Call’ tele-care service, which provides them with a reassuring emergency response.
The development also has a hairdressing salon, restaurant, shop and communal social areas.
Hanover Director Claire Anderson said: “Older people tell us they value their independence and security. Hanover understands this, and offers a fantastic range of services coupled with spacious and well designed flats.
“Many of the people I have met today are considering downsizing from larger family houses to luxury contemporary apartments where they will have peace of mind and care and support on hand if ever they need it.”
Councillor Robert Evans, Executive Councillor for Care Services, London Borough of Bromley said:
“I am very proud to have attended this event to mark the completion of Regency Court, our second state of the art extra care housing scheme at Bromley Common. Together with Crown Meadow Court, this new scheme is an important part of achieving the Council’s vision to move away from a reliance on residential care and give people who need care and support greater control and independence over their lives. Regency Court was designed and built to the highest specification and means that people can have their own front door with the reassurance of 24 hour care on their doorstep. It is also a great example of partnership working with Hanover.”
