Manager's description

“At Browhead Court sheltered housing scheme in Burnley, we offer purpose-built properties for rent for people over the age of 55. You can enjoy your retirement and get the best out of life in comfortable surroundings with the benefit of having a scheme manager and a 24-hour alarm service if ever you have an emergency. You will not need to worry about maintenance and repairs as we take care of those. We provide a wide range of facilities, including a communal lounge, a garden or outside seating area, an on-site laundry, parking bays and, in many schemes, a guest room for visitors. Sometimes you may want to be on your own and other times you may want to be sociable. Our properties give you that freedom and our scheme manager can help arrange social activities where you can meet other like-minded people. We know pets are important to some people and we have a policy which welcomes small pets. If you want to know more, please get in touch”
