The development is located in the Bushmead area of Luton with views of the Bedfordshire Downs. It is set in landscaped grounds and comprises 41 Apartments on 2 floors.

Opposite the Court are local shops including a small supermarket, chemist, hairdressers and newsagent. There is also a local church and thriving community centre and the local health centre is also situated only a short distance from the Court. Luton town centre with its comprehensive amenities is approximately 2 miles away and easily accessible by public transport.

A big advantage at Bushmead is that the Court is registered for domiciliary care in-house. We have in-house staff for care purposes with the option of allowing our owners to bring in their own extra care. Care is available 24 hours per day, every day. In addition to a Duty Manager always sleeping over we also have a waking night member of staff. This provides peace of mind to our owners and their loved ones that help and support is always at hand. Bushmead is well recognised by local professional services. We invite you to look at the cqc report about us." Show less
