Activities at the Sheltered Housing Schemes
The Age Friendly Delivery Team manage our Sheltered Housing Schemes and bungalow sites in Chorlton. The Officers carry out health and wellbeing visits to our residents living in these properties. In our Sheltered Housing Schemes residents have access to communal facilities, a lounge, laundry and gardens and the properties benefit from a community alarm which is monitored 24/7 365 by an offsite company who can provide reassurance and contact services in the event of a health emergency.
The following activities take place weekly at Holland Court:
- Monday – arm chair exercise with Charlotte 10.30 to 11.30am
- Tuesday – Crafts with Glenys 1.00 to 3.00pm
- Wednesday – Alternative weeks coffee morning / Yoga with Spiros
