Henderson Court was purpose built by McCarthy Stone as part of our Retirement Living Plus range, formally assisted living. The development consists of 59 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments for the over 70s. There is an Estates Manager on site, 24 hour staffing and a 24-hour emergency call system provided via a personal pendant alarm and with call points in each room.
As well as the privacy of your own apartment, there’s the opportunity to lead a full and active social life. You can call into the homeowners’ lounge whenever you feel like company, and it’s a lovely place to meet up with friends or join in the many activities organised by homeowners and the Estate Management team. The lounge is also the perfect space to invite friends and family over for a special celebration.
Open every day, our table service restaurant serves tasty and nutritious lunches for our homeowners and their friends and family, at a very reasonable price. All the food is freshly prepared and we can cater for special dietary requirements. For a special occasion or celebration, you’re also welcome to book our function room and there is a computer available to use here.
