Manager's description

“For most of our Extra Care Housing estates we have agreements with the local authority to let a percentage of our vacant properties to people nominated by them. Hanover’s agreement for this estate is that all of the allocations are managed by the local authority, Braintree District Council, who can be contacted on 01376 552525.

Set in a picturesque riverside location within landscaped gardens, Helen Court offers 55 Extra Care apartments designed for the over 55s. The estate also offers a wide range of on-site facilities which include a residents’ lounge, hair salon and guest room. Midday meals can be enjoyed in the on-site restaurant, which has a choice of dishes.

Located near green open space on Maldon Road, the properties are very handy for local shops and the town centre. The on-site manager takes care of upkeep of the building/grounds and can offer advice on how to access further support. Frequent social events and trips out add to the friendly and inclusive environment of Helen Court”
