Slough extracare scheme completed
An £8.3m extracare development in Slough has recently been opened,
Northampton Place, which is managed by not-for-profit provider Hanover in partnership with Slough Borough Council comprises 56 one and two bedroom apartments, each with fitted kitchen, level access shower, and gas, heating and hot water systems.
The Hanover on Call service 27/7emergency response and an on-site care and support team is provided by Slough Borough Council. Councillor Chrissy Small, commissioner for health and wellbeing, said Northampton Place and The Pines were the future of housing for older people who need more help but who want to keep their independence.
‘They are designed to be luxurious while still offering the extra care people need,’ said Cllr Small. ‘As they are all separate apartments it means older people can keep their independence while receiving that little extra help they need.’
