CGA flies the flag for independent living

We are extremely proud to announce that our brand-new flagship complex – ‘The Courtyards’ in Ingol - has welcomed its first residents!

‘The Courtyards’ is a unique independent living scheme for the over 55s, complete with 60 stylish apartments, a bistro, hairdressers, beauty salon, treatment rooms, wellness suite and activity hub, supplemented with 24-hour care provision for residents who require it.

Kathy Hadden, our Extra Care Manager said:

“We are thrilled with how smoothly day one has gone and our new residents are well and truly settled in. Our first resident even managed to get their supermarket shopping delivered right to their apartment within hours of moving in, which was great to see and exactly what we aimed for when we co-designed The Courtyards in conjunction with our existing customers – it’s absolutely “the place to be” for independent living in older age.”

“I am confident that The Courtyards will be a genuinely vibrant and dynamic place for the over 55s, with fabulous apartments and great community facilities for residents to enjoy with their families and friends. All fully accessible too to anyone with impaired mobility. We know it’s been a godsend for people like Mrs Clarkson who wants to live in her own home with support from neighbours and staff when she needs it, whilst being able to enjoy a range of facilities close by.”


The facilities, along with the communal garden space, will also be open to residents’ families and for the neighbouring community to enjoy once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.

Mr Rego moved into The Courtyards earlier this week and is delighted with his apartment, he said: 

“The unpacking is almost done and everything is in its new place. There’s nowhere quite like the Courtyards, im going to be very happy here."

With three open-spaced landscaped areas, an outdoor cabin for gardening and carpentry, together with outdoor fitness activities, there truly is something for everyone to enjoy whether they’re living at or visiting The Courtyards. When you just fancy a chat and a bite to eat, you can turn to the onsite Bistro, run by local Dragons’ Den celebrity Jamie Asquith.

All 1 and 2 bed apartments complete with their own personal outdoor space are being offered at affordable rents, to complement the wide range of housing which CGA already provides in the local area and you can find out more on our dedicated webpages here or get in touch by calling 0800 953 0213 or emailing the team on
