The event gave partners including the local authority, Age UK and Swale Home Improvement Association, the opportunity to find out more about the high quality accommodation and levels of care and support the scheme offers.
The new extra care housing scheme at Herriot Gardens, Sowerby is known as Orchid House. It offers 64 one and two bedroom apartments for rent, shared ownership or sale in a supportive community that is staffed 24 hours a day. There are also 26 two-bedroom bungalows surrounding Orchid House on Acacia Drive.
Orchid House is set across three floors and includes a communal area on each floor and an attractive garden room for residents to enjoy. Opening onto the main piazza, the extra care apartments and surrounding bungalows will be part of a new community hub with retail units and a bistro.
All the properties have been designed to provide high quality accommodation for those requiring additional levels of care and support and easy access to enable them to maintain a high level of independence.
Thirteen Group has worked in partnership with North Yorkshire County Council, Hambleton District Council and construction company Galliford Try Partnerships North, supported by funding from the Homes and Communities Agency. Galliford Try’s housebuilding division, Linden Homes, are currently marketing the properties for sale while the community facilities and homes for rent is operated by Thirteen Group.
Martin Hawthorne, Director of Development and Regeneration at Thirteen, said: “Herriot Gardens is a fantastic development and we were thrilled to welcome partners to the stakeholder event.
“It was great to showcase the facilities that are on offer to residents as well as highlight the benefits of this bespoke extra care scheme and how it will meet the needs of residents who will benefit from its specialist features.”
North Yorkshire County Councillor Clare Wood, Executive Member for Adult Social Care and Health Integration, said: “Extra Care is a flagship programme for the County Council and we plan a scheme in every major town in North Yorkshire.
“Extra care developments such as this exciting scheme for the Thirsk area, give people what they tell us they want – to live independently in their own homes, with more choice and control over their support, so they can continue to be part of their local communities for longer."
