The delivery partners, including Pinnacle PSG, have worked closely with Kirklees Council to deliver schemes with a strong and active community.
The Extra Care facilities have been designed to create Community hubs, providing communal facilities including a hairdressing salon, restaurant and activity rooms, in which residents can interact with those from outside of the community. A communal residents’ lounge has also been provided.
This helps to ensure that older people can avoid the social isolation that often accompanies the later years of life, and remain active members of the community and enjoy a better quality of life.
