Mears was appointed to build ‘The Hollies’, a brand new supported housing scheme in partnership with Bolton Council and HB Villages.
The 24 one bedroom apartments provides specialist supported living close to amenities, leisure and employment, specifically built for adults with learning disabilities. The scheme allows vulnerable adults to have their own independence in a safe environment that feels like a home; not a care facility. Opened in 2018 the facility provides personalised care where the Local Authority will assess and design a personal care plan around each individuals needs.
It is a thoughtfully designed and innovative scheme, offering a dedicated 24 hour care service alongside full accommodation management. The care service is provided by Bolton Cares who have a dedicated specialist team with experience in managing high input care needs, applying the latest in technology to ensure residents are receiving the care they need in an environment that is both a community and a home.
