Our three sheltered schemes in Cleve Road in West Hampstead provide 34 self-contained studio flats and one bedroom flats for older people aged 55+. The schemes aim to support independent living. New residents come to us as referrals from Camden Council.
The sheltered schemes are all set in beautiful converted Victorian buildings, complete with period fireplaces and high ceilings, on this one-way street in a sought-after area of London. Numbers 2 and 17 are on three floors, while number 14 is on two. Numbers 14 and 17 are situated opposite each other
Residents live independently in their own flats and can ask for support from the Scheme Manager if they need it. There is also an emergency call system to all flats.
The schemes’ communal facilities include:
- large hallways
- a communal lounge with shelves of books at number 17 (also used by residents at no. 14)
- a laundry at no. 17 (also for no. 14) and a washer-drier at no. 2
- guests room at nos. 14 and 17, available for a reasonable charge
- an office at no. 17, for use by all Cleve Road residents
- lifts at nos. 2 and 17
- attractive, old-established gardens with seating at each of the houses – at no. 17, residents can grow vegetables
- a limited number of garages at no. 14 and three parking spaces at no. 17. Alternatively, residents can purchase a parking permit from Camden Council.
We employ cleaners and gardeners to service the shared areas and residents can also call on our centralised repair service.
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.
Cleve Road staff provides new residents with a tenancy pack, including their tenancy agreement and a resident’s handbook, outlining their rights and responsibilities.
Staff then works with each new resident to draw up an individual support plan. This may include 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.
Various activities are provided by our Arts and Events team. These may take place off site.
We regularly hold roadshows, conferences assemblies to allow for our residents to have an opportunity to communicate with us clearly and directly.
