People looking to stay active in later life will be able to reserve their place in a new state-of-the-art village community as Belong Chester releases its 23 independent-living apartments for purchase or rent. The one- or two-bedroomed apartments are located within a vibrant village complex set to open in January 2022. Featuring a range of spaces and amenities, such as a bistro, hair salon, gym and art studio, this newly built community care village epitomises the active lifestyle facilitated in later life by Belong.

The high specification apartments with custom-built living facilities and 24-hr emergency response also provide the reassurance of being located within a caring community. As well as the independent-living apartments, the village includes households providing round-the-clock support, including specialist dementia and nursing care, ensuring there are always members of the Belong team on-site.

Located in the city centre, Belong Chester offers easy access to key city amenities, such as the train station and central shopping areas. Deputy Chief Executive, Tracy Paine believes Belong’s new community will bring mutual benefit to both residents and locals. “Our villages are well-known for becoming a thriving hub in the local community. Our range of community-focused facilities are all open to the public and we’re proud of how Belong adds value to an area by encouraging shared activity amongst our residents and neighbouring communities.”

Having witnessed the development of the new Belong site, Tracy is eagerly anticipating its opening early in 2022. She comments, “Belong has always looked to design its households and apartments with our customers in mind. We appreciate the unique needs of people living with dementia, and so everything from the layout of the interior rooms and exterior grounds to the range of facilities available and the skills of the team who provide them is put together to promote living life to the full as independently as possible. This pioneering approach to community care means we expect places in our apartments to be in high demand.”

Floor plans and prices packs for the apartments will be released at the end of April, with Belong Chester due to open in January 2022. To receive information on release, please contact [email protected] or call 01244 470 570.
