These properties are owned by the Council and provide individual and communal accommodation to people over the age of 60.
Anyone over the age of 60 who enjoys their own independence but would like peace of mind about
their health, safety and security.
It is also ideal for those who would like the chance to get together with others, when they feel like it.
Beryl Croft moved into Denham Court in April 2008 after experiencing antisocial behaviour in her home in Dewsbury. According to Beryl
"it has been the best move she has made; despite thinking retirement living was not for her".
It has been a new lease of life for her and she is now extremely social joining in activities like gardening, dancing and arm chair exercises but also enjoys her personal space where she can spend time on her own. "Denham Court has a real family atmosphere and we all look after each other. I feel safe and well supported by tenants and Melanie Goodall the Scheme coordinator"
