After years of planning and weeks of intensive work, Eller Beck Court welcomed its first resident on Monday 27th September 2021.
Catholic Care is working in partnership with H21 who have built a pristine building, specifically adapted to meet the needs of older people. The building incorporates fifty-eight 1 and 2 bed apartments, a Bistro, laundry and hairdressing salon.
This is the first extra care accommodation project for older people for the Charity. Catholic Care will be providing the care and support to the scheme.
Eller Beck is an Extra Care Scheme for older people. Living in a self contained, fully accessible and
modern home enables older people to maintain their independence whilst benefiting from optional
care and support packages that are tailored to their needs. The care and support provided by Catholic Care comes in two ways. Firstly, there is what we refer to as core support where members of staff are on site 24 hours a day to deliver a flexible service to the residents, as and when required. They are also available to provide an effective first response in emergencies. Secondly the Charity will be providing planned care, a package of care built around the individual needs of the resident and delivered in the privacy of their own apartment.
Congratulations to Annette Clark, Vicky Hogg, Liz Young and the whole team on what you have achieved so far and good luck with this exciting new venture.
