Type of property
At Bridges House apartments, people benefit from a vibrant network of staff and friends, while having peace and quiet when they need it too.
There are nine apartments with a bedroom, kitchen and bathroom, with a further three apartments having a separate lounge as well. Downstairs there’s a communal lounge and laundry room for everyone to use. There’s also a staff sleep-in room which means there’s always someone on hand to help.
When you choose supported living, you’re choosing to live independently, safe and secure behind your own front door. There’s peace of mind in knowing the Lifeways team is on-hand, providing tailored support that helps people to lead more fulfilling lives, surrounded by like-minded people.
