Extra Care Housing for older people who are physically or mentally frail.
Our state of the art new housing complex Ewart House, won the coveted accolade Best New Place to Live in London in the 2010 London Planning Awards run by Mayor of London, Boris Johnson.
Ewart House offers the privacy and comfort of your own flat with professional care and support available day and night in a building that looks like a boutique hotel. There are 47 flats, including three designed for a person with mild dementia. Some flats have two bedrooms making them ideal for a couple whose health makes sharing a room awkward.
Most flats have their own private balcony. All flats are designed so a wheelchair can move easily around all the rooms. The flats are attractive, spacious, light and very cheap and easy to keep warm in cold weather. The insulation is super thick and the building has its own solar heating.
Each has a generously-sized kitchen/dining room, with a fully fitted modern kitchen. Bathrooms have a walk-in shower and easy clean surfaces. All flats have storage space.
Ewart House has a beautifully furnished shared lounge on each floor, its own café opening onto landscaped gardens, a health spa for hairdressing, pedicures and assisted bathing, and a parking/recharging room for motorised buggies.
High tech lifts serve each floor and there is a chair lift on the stairs. There is a discreet pacing area for tenants with mild dementia.
HCHA manage Ewart House and employ a team of professional staff to support tenants with practical daily matters to help them maintain their independence and health.
Very personal care is provided by a second team employed by Hales Home Care. It has staff on duty 24 hours a day.
The communal lounge is the hub, it has a lively schedule of events, including Bingo,craft activities where residents get to try their hand at something new, and manicure sessions. Some of these activities are run with help from volunteers as well as our own staff.
