Peace of Mind

All apartment tenants have access to a daily checking service and 24-hour emergency response, both included within the community fee.

As the building includes a 24-hour care setting, the emergency response is provided by Belong’s own on-site staff team rather than relying on calling out to a cover agency for this service.


High-quality design

Belong apartments are designed by leading architects for older people’s settings and built to the highest standards to meet the needs of our residents. Features include extra-wide corridors and doorways, and bathrooms are fully accessible to wheelchair users, with easy-to-open doors and colour contrast furnishings to enhance perceptibility.

From our wet-room shower design to our easy-to-reach plug and light sockets, every detail has been considered. Each apartment contains an access system for controlling the entry of visitors, including a two-way audio entry phone. Wiring is pre-installed for digital and satellite television, with broadband 'hotspot' facilities available throughout the village.


Vibrant community

Apartment tenants are invited to join in the village What’s On programme of events and activities and indeed to influence its development to ensure that activities on offer reflect their interests.

There is also a discounted rate for apartment tenants when it comes to use of the Belong bistro and gym. Other facilities include a hair salon and an entertainment venue with licensed bar, which can also be rented for private events.

We recommend you come and visit to experience community life. Call us on Tel: 01782 986 300 to book a tour.
