Bromley marks Regency Court milestone

Thu 16 August 2012, 2:55 pm

Bromley Council and partner Hanover have completed their second extra-care housing development for the elderly.

Regency Court in Bromley Common was officially opened earlier this month and boasts some 60 apartments, each with a fitted kitchen and a specially-adapted bathroom.

Its completion follows the opening of Crown Meadow Court, also in Bromley Common, last year. A third extra-care home is being developed through the partnership in Penge.

Robert Evans, Bromley's care services lead, said the state-of-the-art facilities were part of the authority's drive to give people alternatives to moving into care homes.

"This new scheme is an important part of achieving the council's vision to move away from a reliance on residential care and give people who need care and support greater control and independence over their lives," he said.

The development also boasts a resident-run shop, a hairdressing salon and shared social areas.
