Quince Court is an extra care retirement housing scheme and is
supported by a team of Social Services carers, who are based at the
scheme. All of our flats are fitted with emergency alarm systems which
are tested regularly. The Home Support Officer will contact you to let
you know how we can help.
There is also a support worker available on site, working in a tenant
support role to promote independence. They work together with the Home
Support Officer to bring that extra level of care but at the same time
allowing you to enjoy your independence. The care team are at the scheme
24 hours a day.
