Barncroft, Extra Care housing development will deliver 21 high quality extra care apartments for over 55’s including support facilities and landscaped gardens for Magenta Living. Located in Pensby on the Wirral Peninsula the scheme will address demand for over 55s accommodation in the Borough.
A sensory garden designed to improve quality of life for people with dementia is just one of the features being developed at Barncroft, Magenta Living’s first Extra Care Scheme in Wirral. The £3.4 million development in Pensby, is the first dedicated independent living scheme for over 55s to be built in the Wirral by Magenta Living, the borough’s largest registered housing provider.
The development will feature a range of communal spaces and facilities to help combat social isolation and support well-being for residents. Along with 21 individual apartments and the sensory garden, the independent living community will include a shared lounge, an assisted bathroom and a garden room. Residents will benefit from a range of 24 hour on-site support services, with flexible care packages available to suit individual needs. The scheme has been designed by Manchester-based Pozzoni, an architecture practice with specialist experience in the creation of dementia care environments.
John Siddell, Head of Development at Magenta Living said
“This latest development underlines our strategic goal of building new homes. We’re working hard to meet a variety of housing needs across the Wirral and beyond, and catering to the needs of people over 55 is a key focus for us. As we deal with the challenges posed by an ageing population, it will become increasingly important to have high-quality supported housing developments like Barncroft available”
