Florence Court is an exceptional extra care housing scheme run by the non-profit Bedfordshire Pilgrim Housing Association and specifically designed for the needs of people aged over 55 who feel they may need additional care in the future, or who already have care needs. Individual care plans are flexible to meet the changing needs of each resident. Care is provided by the charitable Orders of St John Care Trust.
Florence Court provides for independent living in light, airy and spacious homes in a friendly and supportive community. The individual homes are built to a high standard and are economical, while spacious communal areas provide excellent additional facilities.
Prospective buyers should be over 55. Applications are subject to approval from BPHA.
There are 40 two-bedroom apartments in the scheme which combine affordable homes of mainly shared ownership properties with some for rent and offering a wide range of services including on site care staff, non-resident manager and full alarm system.
The whole development is well designed and spacious standing in its own grounds. There are social and community activities within the development including hair salon and treatment room, TV lounge, dining room, library, laundry room and games/activities room. There are facilities and charging points for mobility scooters, parking for residents and visitors and extensive well-maintained communal gardens.
