McCarthy & Stone has been given the green light to develop 58 Assisted Living retirement apartments in Taunton, Somerset.
The properties, available with either one or two bedrooms, will be located on Mount Street in Taunton, close to the shops and amenities of the town centre.
The Assisted Living homes will benefit from communal facilities, including a waitress service restaurant and shared lounge, plus personal care, housekeeping and other support services all in a safe and secure environment that will offer peace of mind and continued independence in a property residents continue to own.
Staff will be on site 24 hours a day and can be called in an instant courtesy of the emergency call system.
Aileen King, regional sales and marketing director for McCarthy & Stone, said: "We are delighted to be bringing Assisted Living to Taunton. Assisted Living is a completely new offering that will really bridge the gap between our standard Later Living developments and residential care. While it will never be a substitute for a nursing home, the additional features and benefits can help postpone or even remove the need to ever consider more formal care arrangements.
"Furthermore, we can offer practical and financial help with the sale of an existing property, liaising with solicitors on the purchaser's behalf and providing a full de-cluttering, packing and removals service. We will also ensure one of our professional advisors is on hand on the day of the move to guarantee everything goes smoothly."
McCarthy & Stone has more than 30 years' experience in the retirement living sector and has currently more than 150 selling developments across Britain.
