Type of property
At William Smith House apartments, people benefit from a vibrant network of staff and friends, while having peace and quiet when they need it too.
William Smith House is a modern, purpose-built development of 16 self-contained one-bedroom apartments. Each apartment has a bedroom, kitchen-diner, and bathroom with either a bath or a walk-in shower. There’s also a communal lounge, games room and laundry room.
Outside there’s a shared garden with a lawn, small patio and seating area.
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.

“William Smith House is very diverse, full of fantastic individuals that are supported by a large staff team who work together to ensure the people we support have their needs, likes and wishes met. We spend a lot of time out in the garden in the summer and in the winter we get together in the communal lounge for indoor activities.”
