Promoting and supporting independent living

Comfort, safety and security under one roof.

Do you have a friend or relative who now needs a bit more help at home, or support with their everyday living, but they aren't ready to live in a retirement home or residential care home?

A WDH independent living scheme is the perfect solution. Our properties help to support their independent lifestyle, meaning they have their own door key and can come and go as they please, while still living within a larger secure scheme, or a self-contained bungalow, that offers them safety and peace of mind.

Our independent living schemes are located in towns throughout the Wakefield district. All are within close proximity to local amenities, meaning residents are never far from shops and essential services. To see where our Independent Living Schemes are located and to see what they are like, please click on the interactive map.

Residents have a built-in support system, because each property is fitted with a WDH Care Link alarm – a 24-hour emergency contact point.

Each scheme has either a Community Support Worker or a Extra Care Scheme Manager who looks after each resident's welfare and liaises with relevant agencies where required. They also arrange and support social activities and events to encourage the active and happy atmosphere found at WDH independent living schemes. There is always something going on, whether it's one of the many trips or a get together in the residents' lounge, boccia bowling, bingo, charity events, learning to get online or even hosting an MP visit!
