The block is fully designed to the latest Universal Design guidelines and has the needs of older residents fully considered with automated door entry and lifts to upper floors along with a Radius Connect 24 service in every home. This facility aims to help older people live independently in their own homes while giving customers and their families peace-of-mind.
