Balmoral Place

Building places where Care and Housing work together

At Mears, we have built our services to integrate housing and care contracts to create new specialist accommodation, such as Supported Living housing and Extra Care property.

Mears combines its skills to build, manage, maintain and provide care to specially-adapted homes for elderly and disable people to help them live independently. These schemes are not new, but there is renewed interest as local authorities look for innovative ways to look after vulnerable people and increase their health and wellbeing.

About Balmoral Place

Opened in 2018, Balmoral Place is an extra care Housing scheme offering an affordable, positive lifestyle choice for older people in Northampton. The scheme provides a safe, secure and vibrant community for those over 55, who want to live independently with personalised care designed for their needs.

This brand new development offers well equipped, spacious one bedroom flats complete with fitted kitchens at an affordable price. Designed for those with and without care needs, the services offered at Balmoral are dependent on individual circumstances and we can support residents with significant assessed care needs, including dementia.

Mears Housing Management is responsible for the day to day running and maintenance of the scheme. Mears Care is on site seven days a week to provide a care and support service to our customers.
