A new Extra Care Living scheme on Ashwood Close has started to welcome its first residents.
Bransdale View in Helmsley was built by Housing 21 in partnership with Ryedale District Council and North Yorkshire County Council as a positive alternative to residential care. The court is designed to offer independent living for people over the age of 55 with access to on-site care for those who need it.
Residents are able to live in their own apartments and remain part of the community as a result of the scheme’s communal facilities, which includes a café bistro, hair salon, communal lounge and hobby room. The apartments at the property are available for affordable rent and shared ownership.
Chris, who is 71 years old, is the first to move into Bransdale View after it opened this month. He said: “After being in hospital for two months I needed somewhere to move to where I could have the extra support when I need it.
“Bransdale View appealed to me as I was originally from the Helmsley area. Here, where I now call home, is comfortable and I am very grateful to all staff and management for organising a comfortable move.
“I have settled and feel completely relaxed in my new home. I know that if I need anything I will only have to call. The building and surroundings are peaceful and nothing has been missed. I would highly recommend Bransdale View to anyone.”
