A new purpose-built supported living scheme for adults with learning disabilities and complex needs has opened in Nuneaton.
Operated by leading social care provider Voyage Care, Savoy Gardens comprises 17 self-contained one and two bedroom apartments.
Designed to cater for the needs of individuals, whilst retaining a modern, comfortable and relaxed feel, each apartment boasts a spacious living area as well as a separate kitchen and bathroom. The home also benefits from communal dining and living rooms for socialising and meeting up with other tenants.
Commenting on the opening of the new scheme, Voyage Care’s interim chief executive Andrew Winning said: “These apartments provide a significant boost to learning disability provision in the Nuneaton area, giving people we support the opportunity to have their own space, tailored to their individual tastes and needs.
“Our aim is always to provide the best possible support in the most suitable environment and we’re confident Savoy Gardens will be a real asset to the community.”
Built by health and social care construction specialists Pacy & Wheatley Construction, the scheme is set in landscaped gardens close to the many shops, leisure facilities, activity centres and other amenities that Nuneaton has to offer.
Properties will be allocated via Westmoreland Supported Housing Association and in addition to meeting a specific local housing requirement, the development is expected to create up to 50 care-related jobs.
