Resident..." Show more "The Rise is a specialist development for people aged over 45 with visual impairment. It provides self-contained apartments with care services based on-site and a range of communal facilities. Residents at The Rise can live independently in their own well-appointed apartments, with the knowledge that specialist care and support is on hand as and when needed.

Each apartment is fitted to a high specification, and the court was built with the needs of people with sight loss in mind. Every aspect has been designed to minimise the difficulties that visual impairment can cause. Communal facilities include a lounge, convenience store, hairdressers and bistro, and the court is set within large grounds.

Plympton itself is a suburb of Plymouth, but has its own town centre known as the Ridgeway. Rich in history, local attractions include Plympton Castle, the Ridgeway shopping precinct and a range of specialist shops." Show less
