“Oakley Gardens is an Extra Care scheme in West Bromwich which offers affordable, well-designed homes with flexible 24/7 care and support services based on-site. Residents enjoy the independence of their own self-contained apartments which are spacious and well appointed, with the reassurance of knowing that help and support is close by when needed, and that they are part of a supportive community.

Communal facilities at the development include three residents’ lounges for socialising, a restaurant, a hairdressers and a fully-equipped assisted bathing suite, as well as landscaped gardens with seating areas. A court manager is based on-site to provide help and support, and the care team is there 24/7 to provide care services tailored to individual needs.
