We have been working on a new state-of-the-art development for over 55s in South Molton. What makes this even more special is it is one of the last projects that Miles Sellick, our Head of Neighbourhoods was involved in before he passed away suddenly in June at the age of 55.
Due to his commitment to North Devon Homes and this site, we are pleased to announce that we have named the development "Sellick Court" in his memory.
We hope this small gesture goes a long way to his family and keeping his memory alive. He was a huge part of the local community, working with many partner agencies, customers and people in the area. Miles will be remembered in many ways and this will be just one small way we can repay all his years of dedicated work.
This state of the art facility is aimed to make independent living easier in the 21st century. With lots of up to date features, friendly decoration and unfurnished affordable housing for over 55 year olds this exciting new development is waiting to be discovered.
Each apartment comes with a fitted open-plan kitchen, lounge, diner a wet room bathroom or bathroom with a shower and either one or two bedrooms depending on the unit and block. Each block has been decorated to be Dementia friendly. This means each block, floor and doorway are colour coded to allow people to associate where they live with a colour code rather than a series of letters and numbers; a proven way of helping people living with Dementia to live independently.
Working on site Monday to Friday will be two Support Officers from North Devon Homes they will offer a range of support services to residents who need help, or can be just a peace of mind to families who have loved ones living at the centre.
As well as all this you can also take advantage of our support system and alarm network via Devon Homelink which offers personal and household alarms and a very low cost per week to offer another level of cover to your home.
For more information please download our leaflet on the development and take a look at our photos of the Show Flat that will be available to view shortly.
