The Clarendon Royal Community aims to create a bustling retirement community for forward-thinkers, looking to downsize and secure their accommodation alongside access to care provision which can track their changing needs, all under one roof and one service charge. At Age UK Medway, we believe access to a thriving social community is key to positive ageing, as well as ease of access to everything that people might need, and the Clarendon Royal Community can offer them just that.
Accommodation Suiting a Variety of Needs
The Clarendon Royal Community offers a selection of one-bedroom and two-bedroom independent apartments for people aged over 55 to rent, set across three floors of the well-known historical former hotel on the Thames waterfront. Accommodation on offer suits a variety of needs, ranging from our premium two-bed two-bath Pent House apartment with separate living area, en-suite and separate main bathroom, as well as an open plan kitchen, to our two-bed and one-bed apartments, each with en-suite and separate bathrooms, separate living/dining area and open-plan kitchens. We also offer large single rooms for those less able to be independent, and who want to limit their own accommodation responsibilities to a simple but luxury sleeping space.
All apartments benefit from the onsite facilities and controlled access, front-of-house concierge services and care staff on-site to suit people’s needs as later life brings additional challenges.
A wealth of activities in our function space on the ground floor mean that our resident and non-resident communities can participate in new experiences and some old favourites, all within the comfort of a premium community environment.
A Range of In-House Services
Residents will have access to a range of in-house services and activities, all catered to their personal needs and many of which are included in their service charge, aiming to support their independence and enhance their quality of life:
The Integrated Housing Community is an Extra Care scheme, which means that residents will receive a personalised care provision according to their needs, provided by our qualified and dedicated care workers, included in their Extra Care premium. The support provided will vary on your exact needs, but may include:
Any personal care needs
Lunch and tea calls
Assisting to bed
The Community Activity Hub, located in the ground-floor Function Room of the building, offers a range of activities and events which residents can take part in, included as part of their service charge. The Hub will provide a vibrant and fun space for people to socialise with other residents and people aged over 55 from the local community.
Residents will have access to a top-quality Waterfront Dining Restaurant, Admiral’s Bar and Social Café onsite, where they can enjoy an exquisite meal with other residents or with their guests, alongside those from the local community who are also welcome to visit the site to enjoy a meal. Residents will be able to enjoy five meals a week included as part of their service charge, and will have priority access to booking a space at the Restaurant, Bar and Café alongside this.
Residents will also benefit from our onsite Footcare Service, to ensure their toe and finger nails are healthy and kept at a comfortable length. The service is provided by trained foot care staff and is monitored by CQC.
Residents will be able to enjoy an on-site Hairdressing & Barber Salon, which caters to everyone, whether in need of a quick beard trim or a full cut, colour and style.
Our Care Reassurance
The Integrated Housing Communities can accept residents without a care need or with care at various levels, offering reassurance that they are being supported by qualified, professional staff and a familiar brand. The inclusive community we aim to maintain within the Clarendon Royal Community will show what we at Age UK Medway Group have known for many years – that creating a thriving, mixed-community, where people choose to live, promotes enhanced wellbeing and decreased isolation and loneliness, as well of course, a sense that people are able to Achieve Life’s Fullness.
As a care provider we are inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Age UK Medway is currently rated as ‘Good’ by Care Quality Commission (CQC). The inspection found us to be fully compliant in the essential standards of quality and safety’
