Housing with Care

Better care in every community.

With a network of branches across the UK, Mears has been providing care and support services since 1994.

We aim to work in partnership with commissioners and others to develop and deliver high-quality care and support services. Our goal is to provide care based on an enabling approach with an outcome focused support planning process.

As a large provider of social care services, Mears works collaboratively with multi-disciplinary teams to address challenges in the social care marketplace.

Some of the innovative solutions we’re developing in our field include:

  • Outcome based models of delivery and payment
  • Partnerships with other organisations (including the voluntary sector)
  • Effective use of assistive technology and equipment
  • Hospital prevention

Our Services

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.
