Construction Starts on Assisted Living Development in Dorridge

11 September 2014

McCarthy & Stone, the UK’s leading retirement developer, has started construction work on 51 new privately owned Assisted Living apartments in Dorridge.

The new development, situated on Four Ashes Road, will comprise a mix of one and two bedroom apartments designed exclusively for the over 70s. The apartments will be available to buy off plan from February 2015, with first occupations due to take place in August 2015.

Gill Sabin, regional sales and marketing director for McCarthy & Stone, commented:  “Everything we do is built around a belief that later life can be rich, rewarding and fulfilling, and starting construction of our Assisted Living development marks an exciting milestone in helping the over 70s in Dorridge make the most of later life.

When complete, the apartments will be low maintenance in design and will benefit from modern fittings, good security and will have a number of specialist features.”

The Dorridge development will also benefit from parking available on site, a beautiful landscaped garden and easy transport links to Dorridge village centre and Bentley Heath Park.

With over 35 years of experience, McCarthy & Stone has become Britain’s leading provider of retirement apartments, having built more than 45,000 apartments in 1,000 different schemes.

Facilities at Dorridge will include a lounge for socialising, landscaped gardens, an on-site table service restaurant, guest suite and laundry. A dedicated estates manager will ensure the smooth running of the development and staff will be on site 24 hours a day. There will also a security entrance system plus 24-hour emergency call points to provide peace of mind for both purchasers and their families. All properties will be low maintenance and energy efficient.

In addition, a helping hand, through flexible care and support packages will be on offer to make life that little bit easier, provided by an on-site team of care professionals.

In nearby Knowle, McCarthy & Stone’s Retirement Living development, Arden Grange, has been extremely popular with locals looking to downsize in later life and over 80% of the apartments are already reserved.
