Wohl Court Takes Shape11 Dec 2017
If you happen to drive through Hendon, then you may have noticed that Jewish Care’s latest development is taking shape. Last year saw the demolition of Jewish Care’s Ella and Ridley Jacobs House and the adjacent former Sam Beckman Day Centre to make way for the organisation’s second Independent Living development – Wohl Court.
Whilst the central Hendon site wasn’t suitable for a modern care home facility, with its proximity to the shops in the heart of the Jewish community, it was an ideal site for self-contained flats for older people. The new development will contain 32 one and two-bedroom apartments for older people in the community who want to live independently, within a secure community, with care and support to hand.
The apartments will be available to rent with first residents expected to move in at the end of 2018. Rents will be in line with local market rents. There will also be some ‘affordable housing’ flats available for people in receipt of state benefits or on a low income.
