New extra care housing scheme nears completion
The new Maes y Dderwen extra care housing scheme in Wrexham town centre which is nearing completion
Wrexham’s new £10.5m Maes y Dderwen extra care housing scheme is nearing completion with the first tenants due to move in at the end of next month.
The scheme is specifically designed for local people aged 60 or over who wish to live independently in a home of their own with the peace of mind of 24-hour access to care support.
A show apartment is now available for people to book individual visits with a limited number of the one and two bedroom self-contained apartments still available.
As well as 60 high-quality apartments there is also a wide range of communal facilities at the scheme, including a restaurant, resident’s lounge, hobbies room and mobility buggy store.
Steve Robinson, Extra Care Services Manager for Clwyd Alyn Housing Association, who will manage the scheme on completion, in partnership with the Local Authority said:
“Maes y Dderwen has been specially designed for people with a wide range of support requirements. We have already had a great response from people who have applied to move in. The building is nearing completion and as a consequence the show apartment will be reopening on the 20, 25, 27, 29 and 31 October. Be quick as there are limited apartments available now”
Cllr Joan Lowe, Lead Member for Health and Adult Social Care, for Wrexham County Borough Council said:
“This is a superb asset to the town and indeed the wider county area. It will provide a first-rate housing option for those over 60 who are looking to live independently in their own self-contained apartment while having the peace of mind of 24 hour care support on site.”
The development is a partnership between Wrexham County Borough Council and Tŷ Glas Housing Society, part of the Pennaf Housing Group.
It will be managed, on completion by Clwyd Alyn Housing Association, which is also part of the Pennaf Group, in partnership with the Local Authority who will provide the domiciliary care.
