Hanover to deliver 30 new homes with care facilities in Elgin
Hanover Scotland has established a working partnership with Health & Social Care Moray (HSCM) and Allied Healthcare which is focused on the delivery of a new independent living area in an Elgin housing development.
Loxa Court is a purpose-built housing development providing housing with care facilities for those including those with age impaired frailty. There will be 30 properties in total for the use predominately for the over 60s; five of these are designed for wheelchair users and another five for those with dementia.
Elgin resident, Alastair McPherson, won the recent naming competition for the development; Loxa being the Roman name for the nearby River Lossie.
Hanover’s director of customer services, Chris Milburn, said: “Loxa Court is well on the way to becoming a fantastic new Hanover development in Elgin, which will provide much-needed housing for people in need of a high-quality home. The positive joint working with Moray Council, HSCM and Allied Healthcare will ensure that the development is an exemplar of what residents can expect from Extra Care and Amenity housing.
“We are rightly proud of this new addition to Hanover’s portfolio of properties in Moray, which demonstrates our long-standing and continuing commitment to the area. There has been a fantastic response so far and we are very confident that there will be high demand for the new properties.”
HSCM project lead, Lesley Attridge, said: “The Loxa Court project gives us a great opportunity to expand on our experience of working in partnership with other agencies. Hanover Scotland is providing the buildings and the landlord function with Allied Healthcare are providing the care component.
“We are hugely excited by the project and as we near the completion date, it is fantastic to see so much interest in the new properties. We know delivering care at the person’s home is key to trying to maintain a good quality of life, and it is great that we are able to do so at Loxa Court.”
Steve Gotts, registered manager at Allied Healthcare, added: “We have only recently become part of this project however recruitment is already well under way. We are seeing a great deal of interest from all over Moray and are delighted by the number of applicants who are new to the care sector, as well as those with a great deal of experience looking forward to delivering outcome-focused, specialist care within a state of the art environment.”
Loxa Court is expected to open in the autumn.
