McCarthy & Stone is inviting the over 70s in Droitwich to find out more about the benefits of an Assisted Living apartment and the personal support and care services on offer at its new development in the town.

The retirement developer is currently building on Hanbury Road, and when complete, the development will provide a real alternative for older people living locally, bridging the gap between conventional retirement developments and residential care.

Designed to offer continued home ownership and all the help needed to enjoy life to the full and maintain independence, each apartment will comprise one or two double bedrooms, a lounge and dining room, a fully appointed kitchen and an inclusively designed bathroom.

Gill Sabin, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy & Stone, explains: " Whatever your reason for moving, why not discover the benefits of Assisted Living - from having a 24 hour on site management presence, domestic assistance and flexible personalised care packages, convenient guest accommodation and an on-site restaurant.

"All our apartments are designed to be wheelchair-friendly, and if you've got a mobility scooter, there's a secure area within the development to charge it. If bending down and lifting is a concern, inside our apartments you'll notice that the ovens and plug sockets are at waist height. Light switches are illuminated to make them easier to find, and kitchen windows are operated at the touch of a button so you don't have to stretch across the work surface.

"In shared areas we make sure there's a handrail in all corridors so you can move around the development with confidence. In the laundry room, we also make sure that our washing machines are raised so that you don't need to bend down to use them. Should you need immediate assistance, no matter where you are in the development, your pendant alarm can be used to alert us."

The development will also have its own on site care team, YourLife Management Services, who will meet with purchasers, and their family, to agree a personal care package. They will monitor residents to make sure they're receiving all the help they need so that they only pay for the additional care and support they need. Personal care and support packages can include anything from having company on shopping or social trips, to medication prompting.

In addition to offering low maintenance, age exclusive apartments, the retirement developer also provides a range of financial services, including a pension annuity service, equity release, legal services and guaranteed funeral plans.
