Manager's description

“Kitty Wheeldon Gardens is a well located sheltered housing complex, situated in the heart of sale with its shops, parks, churches and all the amenities you would expect from a busy, modern town right on your door step. The scheme consists of twenty four flats, eleven of which are ground floor and twelve first floor. Each flat has its own front door on to the complex. The ground floor flats also have a patio door opening on to a well established communal garden. which is maintained to a very high standard by regular visits from contracted gardeners and residents who like to get involved, the garden is fenced off providing privacy and security.

Each property has its own lounge, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.
The ground floor flats have level access showers and the first floor have a bath. The flats are all electric off peak economy seven and all properties have a lifeline alarm for help in an emergency.

The scheme is supported by a resident scheme manager who works twenty five hours a week. Her off duty time is covered by Trafford mobile warden services and Trafford control centre. all rooms have a pull cord linked to a lifeline alarm. Your call will be answered by trained staff twenty four hours a day. Personal care can be provided by other agencies and this can be arranged through social services. Your scheme manager can help you arrange this if required.

There is the opportunity to socialise in our garden conservatory, which is used for coffee mornings, afternoon teas, quiz nights and bbqs or just to relax and read a book in the warm and welcoming environment. At Kitty Wheeldon Gardens there are many opportunities to mix and make friends. we also have regular social activities at the salvation army centre next door to the scheme. such as luncheon club, over sixties light lunches and keep fit body and soul. Residents are always made welcome. There is as much or as little involvement as you want as staff respect your privacy and freedom of choice”

Comments about Kitty Wheeldon Gardens

Have lived at Kitty Wheeldon Gardens for 11 years and the location is superb and having own front door is good too. The scheme was built in 1993 and we still have the original kitchens, windows and bathrooms. We fitted our own bathroom and kitchen, the rent is £670 pcm. The conservatory is maintained and cleaned by the residents. But on the whole it is a good scheme in which to live.23/11/2016janet (currently lives here)reply
