Residents and staff at an extra care housing scheme joined together with guests to celebrate the official opening of the new development.
The gathering of more than 130 people at Smithybrook View, in Clay Cross, praised the complex as a wonderful place to call home and a great place to enjoy independent living with care.
Smithybrook View has 90 stylish, self-contained, two-bedroom apartments for older people who have an assessed need for care and support.
By offering independent living with care, the development is an alternative choice to traditional residential care.
With attractive, landscaped gardens, and designer furnishings and decor, Smithybrook View has been built to first class standards.
The outstanding facilities include a coffee bar, restaurant, lounge and hairdressers with a beauty salon, which are also open to the community.
The on-site care team provides round the clock care and support services tailored to individuals’ requirements.
