Show more "An Independent Living scheme in an established residential estate, there are a total of 57 properties at Martinfield and Leyfield. A mixture of one and two bedroom bungalows and apartments with separate lounges and kitchens, each has its own front garden and access to a communal garden at the rear.

Located on the outskirts of the town of Penwortham and only a couple of miles from the centre of Preston this is a thriving location with plenty of pubs, restaurants, shops and a library amongst other amenities nearby.
Thanks to the excellent transport links, the scheme is ideally positioned for exploring the nearby coast, countryside and towns.

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 the 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 quizzes and coffee mornings to a lunch club and day trips. Residents can socialise in the lounge or garden, read a book from the library or access the internet via the communal computer." Show less
