Life in our properties

At our properties, we have people from various walks in life. Often, residents will join us having reached a life changing milestone, such as bereavement, separation, moving back to the area, or needing accommodation which requires more support. 

At Podsbrook House and Noel Pelly House, our residents have the opportunity to embrace a new community, find new friends, develop new relationships, and be part of Witham society in general.

Within our residences, we have a number of social and keep fit activities, and outside there is much to do in Witham and surrounding areas, various sporting and social clubs, a great swimming pool and leisure centre, lots of restaurants, and places to explore, by foot, bicycle or mobility scooter.

The River Walk in Witham is a great example of this.

Transport links to London or East Anglia are excellent, with great rail and bus services, and, for further afield, Stansted airport is less than 25 miles away.

Colin's Story

"I came from East Sussex to Podsbrook House in February 2019. After my wife passed away I felt very lonely and isolated living on my own in a small village and I wanted to move nearer my family.

ColinMy daughter and son in law live in Witham and had heard about Podsbrook House, we came to look round and I applied for a property. Fortunately I didn’t have to wait long for a studio flat to become available.

It’s the best move I have ever made, there are lots of social activities going on from keep fit to fish and chips. I have made a lot of friends and we meet up regularly in the resident’s lounge.

I have a scooter so I remain independent and able to do my shopping and get my daily newspaper. I like the fact that there are staff on site all week to check on you or to help out when needed."
