Show more "Shepherdson Court is a popular Independent Living Scheme located in a quiet residential area of South Bank, Middlesbrough, just off the A66 so handy for visitors, and with good transport links to Middlesbrough and Redcar Town Centres and the seafront. There are two large supermarkets nearby and a regular weekly market within walking distance.

At Shepherdson Court we offer self-contained flats to rent for people over the age of 55 (or under 55 if you have medical needs). You would have the privacy of your own flat, consisting of lounge, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom – many with level access showers or wet rooms, and also have the benefit of having access to our communal areas if you want a bit of company. You can pop down to the main lounge for coffee mornings or to take part in an activity, or just sit outside and enjoy the beautiful garden area.

We have a full-time scheme manager, Sue Corner, and a 24-hour mobile warden service in case of emergencies. As well as the communal lounge and garden we also have a fully-furnished guest room for your visitors, a quiet room/library, a hobbies room, a laundry, and a hairdressing salon. Our parking bays and communal areas are covered by CCTV and you have a secure door entry system so you can view your visitors on the TV when they come to the main entrance. If you would like any further information, please ring up for a chat." Show less
