Keelboat Lodge is an Extra Care scheme in Sunderland, offering independent living close to a variety of shops and amenities, with access to a range of communal facilities on site and round-the-clock access to care and support.
The scheme comprises 14 bungalows and 71 apartments, with communal facilities including a restaurant, activities room, hair salon and residents’ lounge. Each property is spacious and well-appointed, with level access shower rooms, modern kitchens and emergency alarms for peace of mind.
Its name was chosen in honour of sailor Jack Crawford, known as the ‘Hero of Camperdown’. Trained as a keelsman as a young boy, he went on to serve in the Royal Navy on HMS Venerable. During the battle of Camperdown in October 1797, part of the Venerable's mast was felled, including the Admiral's flag. Lowering the Admiral's personal flag was a sign of surrender, and even an unintentional fall was unacceptable. Despite being under intense gunfire, Crawford climbed the mast and nailed the colours to the top.
Care and support is available 24-7 from the on-site team, who will be able to provide care tailored to your individual needs. Care services can support with personal care, social activities, domestic tasks and much more.
