"Lowerfield is an Independent Living scheme with a total of 35 spacious one and two bedroom apartments and bungalows. Each room has its own kitchen and access to a community library and garden.

Set in a lovely, semi-rural residential area between Leyland and Lostock Hall, Lowerfield is within easy reach of both town centres, which offer a good range of local amenities from pubs and restaurants to markets and independent shops. Keeping active is easy thanks to excellent transportation links to Preston, neighbouring towns and villages or the beautiful Lancashire coast and countryside.

The scheme benefits from a scheme manager service to ensure the safety and wellbeing of residents and to provide a link with doctors, families, friends and support services. The scheme is also monitored by the Control Centre and should an emergency arise they can be contacted by pulling the red intercom cord or pressing a pendant. This service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year.

There are a wide range of optional social activities at the scheme ranging from bingo and coffee mornings to a lunch club and day trips. Residents have access to a computer with internet and a library." Show less
