Independent living

Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council’s new Independent Living Service launches on 1 May 2017.  If you want to maintain an independent lifestyle in the comfort of your own home, while enjoying the peace of mind that comes from living in a safe, secure and shared environment, then our schemes could be ideal for you.

Independent living enables you to live your life to the full, leaving most of the everyday stresses of home ownership to us.  The service and accommodation is available to those aged 60 and over, and schemes offer communal facilities such as lounges, gardens and in most cases laundry facilities.

All apartments have a 24-hour emergency call system. This will give you peace of mind that someone is available at the push of a button to contact friends, family or the emergency services when you need help.   A member of our team will visit the scheme every day (Monday to Friday) to maintain the day-to-day running of the facilities and help you with any housing related issues.  They will make sure that the equipment and facilities at the scheme and in your apartment are in good working order.  Our staff can also help you access aids and adaptations, to help you remain independent in your own home, and make referrals or signpost you to services.

If you require any additional support then our wellbeing officers will be on hand to assist you.

For further information please contact the Independent Living Service team by contacting customer services on 024 7637 6406.
