WDH Independent Living Schemes


Do you have a friend or relative who now needs a bit more help at home, or support with their everyday living, but they aren't ready to live in a retirement home or residential care home?

A WDH independent living scheme is the perfect solution. Our properties help to support their independent lifestyle, meaning they have their own door key and can come and go as they please, while still living within a larger secure scheme, or a self-contained bungalow, that offers them safety and peace of mind.

Each scheme has a Community Support Worker who look after each resident's welfare and liaises with relevant agencies where required. They also support social activities and events to encourage the active and happy atmospheres found at WDH independent living schemes.

Residents have a built-in support system, because each property is fitted with a WDH Care Link alarm – a 24-hour emergency contact point.

For further information about our schemes, please contact the Independent Living Team on 01977 724449.
