“Nightingale Lodge will provide high quality new homes in Romsey for anyone who wants to remain independent, but may need extra help and the added reassurance of qualified staff on hand 24/7. This is all about offering people choices rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach to care.”
Councillor Liz Fairhurst, Hampshire County Council Executive Member for Adult Social Care and Health
In late 2019 ground was broken for the construction of Nightingale Lodge, developed by Lovell Later Living in partnership with Hampshire County Council and Test Valley Borough Council and funded by Places for People Living Plus, a leading UK affordable homes led placemaker.
Nightingale Lodge Extra Care scheme is set in the heart of Romsey and will open in October 2021 to provide 54 apartments available for affordable rent or shared ownership as an ‘age exclusive’ development for over 55’s. Each apartment will be provided with high-end, modern finishes along with fully landscaped communal grounds to offer comfortable independence and privacy when desired all while ensuring peace of mind as support is available, when needed, along with a ready-made social community on the doorstep.
“We are delighted to support the communities we aim to serve. This development will be our first in Romsey and we look forward to supporting local people enabling them to live as independently as possible, for as long as possible.”
Debi Marriott-Lavery, Places for People, Group Executive Director – Affordable Housing
“The opportunity that the development of Nightingale Lodge creates for local older people to live well in a home of their own along with the creation of long term jobs for local people are outcomes we are all very proud to be a part of.”
Paula Broadbent, Managing Director, Lovell Later Living
The development is benefiting Romsey through not only bringing new, age appropriate homes but also through the creation of multiple local jobs including the engagement of local contractor Amiri to construct the scheme.
