Grand opening for new service in Coventry
There was an official opening ceremony last week for our service in Coventry, Limbrick Place.
Consisting of 3 buildings, Beech House, Willow House and Ash House, the scheme is a development of 24 modern and accessible apartments, with Ash House being a registered residential service with 10 en-suite bedrooms.
Lifeways were joined by representatives from our partners HB Villages, local council officials and Mayor of West Midlands Andy Street for the opening ceremony.
Alastair Sheehan, Head of Development at HB Villages, said:
“Our development provides the opportunity for local adults with disabilities to have their own home, but with the added benefit of on-site support staff. When combined at the outset with assistive technology commissioned concurrently, the outcomes for tenants are greatly enhanced.”
Cllr Faye Abbott, cabinet member for adult services at Coventry City Council, said:
“It is fantastic to see Coventry have a development of this type. This scheme goes a long way in providing a safe and comfortable environment for people with learning and physical disabilities, as well as more serious cases of complex care.”
Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, added:
“It’s important to me to make sure that the most vulnerable in our society are cared for in the West Midlands. This is a really good example of what can be done using the specialist supported living model which is a fantastic approach to dealing with the shortage of quality accommodation for vulnerable adults.”
The development already has tenants who are enjoying their new homes and greater independence.
