Show more "In our modern, newly refurbished flatlets, we offer the very best combination of retained independence with the convenience and reassurance of 24 hour access to support from staff, who can be with you in an instant if needed. Our beautiful flatlets are centrally heated, fitted with carpets, curtains modern kitchen and bathroom and ample storage. Tenants come and go as freely as they would in their own home. We want to help you keep your independence as long as possible.
The flatlet is able to be filled with your furniture and personal belongings to give it that homely feel. There are lifts between the two floors that the flatlets are situated over.

We know moving home can be stressful and we really care that your new home feels – well – like your home, so we help:
· provide adaptations such as handrails, raised
toilet seats
· provide space to store electric scooters
· there is onsite maintenance personnel to help
keep your home problem free and the grounds are
kept looking beautiful by a contracted professional
grounds landscaping company.
· for those that have an interest in gardening we can
provide areas within the grounds for them to
continue with this pastime.
· assist with accessing any outside services as
required.
· you liaise with social services or any other
professional body you may need to contact

However, the real benefit comes from being part of the ‘Rayner House and Yew Tree family’. When you move in to your flatlet we:
· provide a fortnightly cleaning service to help
maintain your flatlet
· offer a sandwich and meal service for when you
don’t want to cook
· give you a personal pendant which means you can
always speak to someone 24 hours a day for support
· give you access to our visiting service providers i.e.
Hairdresser, Chiropodist, Optician etc.
· as part of the complex, facilities in Rayner House &
Shepherdson Court can be accessed by Yew Tree
tenants.
· the beauty of Yew Trees is that it is a lovely
community where you can be involved in as much or
as little as you want.
· some of the things that are arranged by the tenants
themselves are: Weekly Shop, Bingo Sessions,
Get Togethers (Informal programme with occasional
guest speakers), Scrabble evenings, Lunch outings
· organise special social events such as our famous
Christmas parties, BBQ’s, Strawberry teas etc.
· offer a bathing assistance service
· hold monthly tenant meetings, so you can talk to us
about your needs

In short we are here when you need us and in the background when you don’t." Show less
