The Villas at Epping provide retirement homes for people from all over the United Kingdom and accommodate a wide range of ages. They can offer security for more than fifty people associated with the Baking Industry, the common link which encourages the community spirit that is so prevalent.
The sheltered accommodation represents much more than simply a collection of dwellings for the retired members of the industry. A wide range of varied activities is offered including Darts, Bingo, Scrabble, Table-Top Sales, Snooker, Arts & Crafts, Seasonal Parties plus outings to places of interest.
The residents can serve on their own Social Committee, and thus play an active role in shaping how the social side of the Villas is run. There is a communal lounge with wide screen T.V and a dining room serving a hot lunch 365 days per year. Indeed, the Villas offer a unique blend of the independence of self-contained dwellings with a close-knit family atmosphere.
The Villas also help and support those who are no longer able to maintain their former independence; such residents are more comforted by being able to remain in the familiarity of their own homes in their twilight years. Recent years have seen the introduction and expansion of care services and the Society is registered with the Care Quality Commission. A recent inspection in August 2016 rated the service as Good. The report will be available in due course on the CQC website. The staff work closely with residents and their families to formulate effective Care Plans to maximise independence.
The Villas comprise of one and two person flats and bungalows set in spacious, attractive grounds close to the shops, bus service and amenities in Epping. Epping is on the Central line Underground service that is 35 minutes from the West End of London, 15 minutes drive from the M11 and M25 yet it is a town surrounded by pretty Essex countryside and set on the edge of Epping Forest.
