Retirement Housing

Retirement houses are properties which have been purposely designed for older people - that is they will normally have full central heating, grab rails, special bathroom fittings, a community alarm system and the services of Retirement Housing staff. They may also have other facilities, such as a common room for the use of all tenants where a range of activities are held, including, for example, Bingo, Knitting Bees, Fish Supper nights, etc.

Where are Thenue's retirement properties?

Listed below are the retirement properties we own and a short description of the facilities in each scheme:

60 one-bedroom ground and first-floor flats and 11 two-bedroomed flats/bungalows which are fitted with an alarm system and are provided with the services of Retirement Housing staff. There is a locally based Community Hall which is available for tenants groups and activities. We encourage all tenants to become involved to help organise and attend as many as possible and make suggestions for any new events which tenants may wish to see being held.

The alarm system is linked by a two-way speech system to  Cordia at its operating centre in Tradeston Street allowing emergency cover 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Detailed information on how the system works is provided to all tenants when they move into one of our houses.
