Ada Court sheltered scheme provides 146 self-contained studio flats and 65 one bedroom flats for older people aged 55+. Four of the flats are adapted for disabled people.
The scheme, which is on eight floors, was built in the 1969 and is situated on a pleasant road in the sought-after area of Maida Vale. New residents come to us as referrals from Camden Council.
Residents particularly value the attractive location.
Residents live independently in their own flats and can ask for support from the Portfolio Manager if they need it. There is also an emergency call system to all flats.
The scheme’s communal facilities include:
- a reception area and office
- a large lounge on the ground floor
- a meeting room on the eighth floor
- a laundry
- several guest rooms available for a reasonable charge
- an IT room, with several computers
- four lifts
- an attractive roof garden on the eighth floor
- extensive gardens
- limited parking – 25 spaces only – so parking cannot be guaranteed. Residents can apply for street parking permits from the council, to park in nearby side streets.
We employ cleaners and gardeners to service the shared areas and residents can also call our centralised repair service.
Tracey Morgan is the Portfolio Manager for our Ada Court sheltered scheme.
Our portfolio managers are responsible for the day-to-day running of our sheltered schemes, aiming to keep things running smoothly, with good team work, empathy and organisation. They also maintain links with outside agencies.
Tracey is supported by Service Officers at Ada Court, whose job involves helping to manage the scheme, as well as providing support to residents so that they can continue to live independently.
New residents are provided with a tenancy pack, including their tenancy agreement and a resident’s handbook, outlining their rights and responsibilities. Our sheltered Service Officers then work with each resident to draw up an individual support plan. The plan may offer support with daily living skills such as claiming benefits, making rent payments, sorting out rent arrears and reporting repairs. Residents who need more support can be referred to specialist agencies.
The friendly atmosphere at our sheltered schemes is important to us, so we recruit people who are warm, open and sensitive to the needs of older people.
As well as informal socialising, regular activities at Ada Court include:
- singing sessions
- keep fit classes
- art classes
- tea afternoons
- visits by Age Concern advisors
- meetings of the scheme's residents’ association.
Various activities are provided by our Arts and Events team. These may take place off site.
We regularly hold roadshows, conferences and assemblies to allow for our residents to have an opportunity to communicate with us clearly and directly.
Ada Court is three minutes’ walk from a branch of Tesco Local. Other shops in the immediate area tend to be upmarket and expensive. However, the scheme is not too far from shops on Edgware Road. It is also a short bus ride from the library and shops on Kilburn High Road.
Residents can opt to use the Kingsgate Day Centre, which provides transport. It has a lunch club and runs various activities. Ada Court is close to the Regent’s Canal and the popular towpaths around Little Venice. The scheme is also close to Regent’s Park and London Zoo.
Transport in the area is good. Warwick Avenue and Maida Vale tube stations are on the Bakerloo line, along with a wide range of bus routes.
