"Northbrook Gardens is an Independent Living scheme situated on the edge of Leyland town centre. There are 50 one bedroom flats and bungalows, each with their own lounge, bathroom and kitchen.

The scheme is conveniently located close to Leyland's excellent range of shops, pubs and cafes and benefits from being in a wooded environment that is home to lots of wildlife. Travel to Chorley, Preston and other neighbouring towns is simple thanks to the excellent bus and train links and the beautiful Lancashire countryside is only a stone's throw away.

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 access and can take advantage of regular visits from the hairdresser." Show less
