Extra care housing provides residents with the perfect balance of independent living and support when they need it. Extra care is a lifestyle choice. You get independence and privacy when you want it, with the added advantage of living in a welcoming community environment. An important feature of extra care housing is the creation of a lively, balanced community of people over 55 years of age who have varying care needs. Atlas Place aims to make residents’ later years stress free and happy.
Optivo's extra care schemes encourage independent living in spacious, well thought out apartments, with help on hand from our 24 hour a day on-site care team as and when you need it. Apartments are well designed and fully accessible for wheelchair users. They're self-contained with modern wet rooms and fully fitted kitchens with integrated appliances. Access to apartments is security controlled, ensuring residents privacy and peace of mind. Residents are able to enjoy a private garden area where they'll have access to a shed, greenhouse and with wheelchair accessible planters, everyone can get involved in some gardening.
The communal lounge is the hub of any extra care scheme, with various organised activities including coffee mornings and resident meetings. Activities are arranged to meet the needs and asks of the residents. These may range from armchair exercise to art classes, reminiscence days and film nights.
The on-site restaurant is open 7 days a week and makes a great meeting place. The restaurant provides tasty home cooked food and is available to residents, local community, family and friends. The restaurant welcomes suggestions and works with the residents to ensure a range of dietary requirements are met.
Further facilities include the mobility vehicle stores, assisted spa bathroom, guest suite and a hairdressers. Free Wi-Fi is also available throughout the ground floor for residents and their families and friends to use. Parking for residents and guests is also available.
