Five reasons to choose independent living

Five reasons to choose independent living

We understand that making the move from your own home can be a big step. You might be worried about losing your independence, downsizing or adapting to a new way of life.

Designed for people aged 60 and over (or 55 with a disability) Independent Living with South Liverpool Homes aims to make that move as seamless as possible, maintaining your independence while providing the support you need, giving you more time to simply enjoy life.

Here are five reasons why it might be time to think about Independent Living with South Liverpool Homes.

  1. Independence with support – the perfect balance

Our whole approach is about independence - the clue’s in the name! From the design of our schemes to the approach of our scheme managers, Independent Living is about putting you in the driving seat, giving you the support you need and the freedom to enjoy your life.

Our scheme managers live on site and are there to help you when you need them, to look after you and your home and be your first point of contact.

  1. Your own space in a friendly community

Apartments in our schemes are completely self-contained, with their own front door, hallway, kitchen, bathroom and living room. So you’ve got the same privacy and independence as you’ve always had, with the benefit of communal gardens and lounge where you can spend time with your neighbours if you choose. It really is up to you.

  1. Easy to manage and no repair bills

Downsizing to one our independent living apartments has many benefits. The biggest is how easy they are to look after, so you can spend more time doing the things in life you enjoy. Whether you’re on your own or in a couple, your apartment is a doddle to keep clean and tidy. And with the same 24/7, 365 days-a-year repairs service as all our homes, you don’t need to worry about costly repair bills. It’s all included in your rent.

  1. Hassle free – less bills to worry about

If your apartment is easy to manage then so are your monthly bills. Your rent also includes your service charge, gas, and water, so you can spend less time paying your bills and more time enjoying life.  With Sky TV ready to go and free wifi in our communal lounges, Independent Living with South Liverpool Homes is plug and play.

  1. Fantastic locations

Both of our independent living schemes are located in Woolton in South Liverpool.

Cobden Place has 57 apartments and is located approximately five minutes’ walk away from Woolton Village, with its array of shops, cafes and pubs. Servite Court has 61 apartments and is located in a quiet cul-de-sac off Mackets Lane, close to local shops and transport links. Whichever you choose you’re in a prime location to enjoy everything that South Liverpool has to offer.
