A Jewish charity has invested over £6million into a new Bushey Heath facility that will help blind and disabled people live independently.
The Jewish Blind & Disabled (JBD) charity, which enables adults of all ages who are physically disabled or visually to live independently, recently opened its new £6.7million Dyna & Fala Weinstock Wing adjacent to its already existing Cecil Rosen Court in High Road.
The new property provides 15 one-bedroom apartments, four two-bedroom apartments, a roof terrace and state of the art communal areas.
Features in the development include emergency pull cords throughout, wet floor shower rooms, accessible kitchens, colour coded corridors, scooter charging room and level access to the accessible gardens.
These features, together with 24/7 on site support from resident house managers, empower tenants to live life as they choose behind their own front door.
The charity’s eighth development across London, Hertfordshire and Essex, was officially opened by Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis.
