Type of property
Orchard Way is a spacious shared dormer bungalow where people are supported to live independently and safely.
The house has four bedrooms, a kitchen, living room, dining room and conservatory. There’s one ground floor wet room with a bath, bath chair lift and shower, plus one ground floor separate toilet. Outside there’s an accessible garden for everyone to enjoy.
When you choose supported living, you’re choosing to live independently, safe and secure behind your own front door. There’s peace of mind in knowing the Lifeways team is on-hand, providing tailored support that helps people to lead more fulfilling lives, surrounded by like-minded people.

“Orchard Way is a beautifully decorated and homely bungalow that’s close to all local amenities. The atmosphere is relaxed; there is a nice back garden. We work with everyone to increase their confidence enough that they can participate in community activities like eating out, country parks and days at the seaside. Everything is done at the persons own pace to ensure minimal anxiety but maximum opportunities.”
