Full descriptionA very well presented bright and airy two bedroom, first floor 'Close Care' apartment with a lift and a balcony, providing assisted living to anyone of the age of 65 or over, or above 55 years of age who is registered as disabled, set within attractive gardens and located in a very pleasant no-through road.
Description - Kilfillan Park comprises a purpose-built development of just eight well proportioned apartments, providing the single person or couple with the opportunity of independently owning their own home, combined with the individual care assistance available on site, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Kilfillan Park is undoubtedly an attractive alternative to a residential care home, being less expensive to run and available to anyone of the qualifying age or criteria. Each apartment is held on a long lease, with an eighth share of the freehold.
Flat 8 is located on the first floor to the front of the building, with its own private balcony overlooking the entrance courtyard. The light and airy accommodation has electric central heating, pull cord alarm system, entry system and intercom to other flats.
Kilfillan Park enjoys a sheltered yet sunny situation within its own attractive and well maintained grounds, with woodland gardens and a graveled forecourt, giving one reserved parking space per apartment.
Kilfillan Park is situated approximately half a mile from the town centre, which provides a choice of shopping and recreational facilities. Numerous clubs and societies are available. The town lies on the A41 between London and Aylesbury, approximately 7 miles from Junction 8 of the M1 at Hemel Hempstead and approximately 9 miles from Junction 20 of the M25 at Kings Langley. The mainline railway station provides a fast and frequent link to London (Euston approximately 35 minutes).
What Is 'Close Care' And What Services Are Provide - Kilfillan Park is managed by Jelf Close Care Limited, a not-for-profit organization, whose main objectives are to administer the block of apartments and to provide 24 hour Close Care to the residents. A Care Manager and part-time care workers are employed. A carer is on site 24 hours a day and the building is never left unattended. Each resident has a pendant alarm to alert the carer, and two emergency/pull cord alarms are also provided in each apartment.
Close Care provides the comfort of readily available assistance, but does not provide nursing or medical help. It is a condition of purchase that prospective residents meet the Manager, to ensure that the correct level of care can be provided, before purchase is agreed.
Carer on site 24/7
One carer on duty for just 8 apartments (allowing time to give individual tailored care)
Approximately one hour of tailored care, per flat, per day
Care hours normally between circa 7.00 am and 10.00 pm
Carers work under the direction of an experienced Care Manager, who actively covers some care shifts and is directly involved with all residents
The monthly service charge is currently £1,020 and, in addition to the cost of the care services above, includes the upkeep of the gardens, lift repair and service, cleaning of external windows and gutters, upkeep of communal areas, external decoration and repairs, building insurance, service of fire alarms and smoke detectors.
