The building will become an asset to the local community as the communal areas of: lounge, dining room, activities rooms, and health and well-being facilities, will be available to both residents and local older people. These will all be set within attractive landscaped communal gardens, with a car park and drop-off space, for ambulances, taxis and minibuses near the main entrance.
