Drop-in information sessions are also being held at the Jade Jones Pavilion in Flint every Friday in June for those wanting to find out more about the new Llys Raddington extra care apartments nearing completion in the town ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The extra care scheme currently under construction in Flint town centre includes 73 one and two-bedroom apartments for local people aged 60 and over, subject to eligibility criteria. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The scheme also features a residents’ restaurant, communal areas and activity rooms as well as landscaped grounds, carparking and a mobility scooter store with 24 hour on-site care support. There are additional assisted bathing rooms and there’s even a ‘sky-lounge’, a conservatory area on the roof. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The drop-in sessions will be held at the Jade Jones Pavilion on Fridays in June from 9.30am to 4 pm when, as well as finding out more about the scheme, visitors can also make arrangements to view the show apartment. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Llys Raddington is a partnership development between Flintshire County Council, the Welsh Government and Tŷ Glas Housing Society, part of the Pennaf Housing Group. When completed the scheme will be managed by Clwyd Alyn Housing Association, which is also part of the Pennaf Group, and individual domiciliary care support will be provided by the Local Authority. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“We’ve already had a great response and lots of interest in the new apartments and the drop-in sessions are a great way to find out if one of these apartments might be the ideal choice either for yourself or a family member,” said Steve Robinson, Extra Care Services Manager. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“The scheme is specifically designed so that people with a wide range of support needs can live independently and enjoy a good quality of life, whether they just need a little extra support or more complex domiciliary care assistance,” added Steve. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Anyone who can’t make the drop-in sessions but would like to find out more can call 0800 183 5757 or email enquiries@tyglas.co.uk ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
