Oakmere, situated in Handforth, consists of 53 newly constructed spacious one- and two-bedroom apartments, mostly wheelchair accessible.
Oakmere provides an independent lifestyle to people wishing to continue to own or rent their own home. But there's the security and peace of mind of knowing that a team of qualified staff is on hand 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Oakmere Extra Care Development will be ideal for you if:
Being able to take part in leisure activities is very important to everyone's wellbeing. At Oakmere, there is an impressive range of private resident-only facilities to enjoy, as well as many communal facilities for residents and their guests. There is a regular quarterly programme of events catering for a variety of interests.
The development also offers:
Also, staff are always on site to manage the facilities, give you information and offer health and wellbeing support if needed.
Avantage has designed special security features into the developments and into each home. All have door-entry systems and closed-circuit television (CCTV), which monitor the communal areas and grounds. The CCTV system is recorded and can be monitored by staff on site. Visitors are welcome and are free to use the communal facilities, but they do not have open access to residents' private areas.
Each home has a video door-entry system and the latest smoke and heat detectors. There's also an emergency alarm that puts you in direct contact with site staff at any time of the day or night. Every reasonable precaution has been taken to give you the security of feeling safe in your own home.
When you move into your Oakmere apartment you will have to pay service charges.
The service charges cover a range of services such as the cost of the on-site staff, the upkeep of communal areas including the gardens and lounges, insurance and the maintenance and upkeep of the building's exterior. The charges will also cover cleaning external windows. This will ensure that all parts of Oakmere are maintained to a high standard.
As the owner or tenant of the property, you will be responsible for paying your own council tax, energy bills and any extra decoration you want to make to your apartment. Your apartment is your own home and you will be responsible for the day-to-day living costs.
