Birmingham-Ridgacre Retirement Village for the Elderly in Need
As we move into the 21st century our society is ageing and the care and welfare of the elderly in need assumes an ever greater importance as the number of elderly, dependent people in our population increases.
Lench’s Trust is now expanding its services to help more, older people through the creation of an ‘extra care’ community at its site at Ridgacre in Quinton, a ground breaking development, aimed at creating a ‘retirement village’, which will enable the elderly to live independently with dignity and a sense of security knowing that professional care and support staff are on hand giving access to care and support on a 24 hours a day 7 days a week basis. The development of this 'retirement village' will begin in May 2009 and complete in December 2010
