Silkstone Court is an integral scheme with 64 retirement homes.
All our apartments have been designed with over 60s in mind, having been modernised throughout to create a relaxing and comfortable environment.
Conveniently located just one mile from Altofts town centre, Church Court is just a walk – or bus ride – from supermarkets, local shops, pubs, clubs, churches, hairdressers, a fish and chip shop, chemists, butcher and a variety of sandwich shops.
At Silkstone Court most of our apartments include an open plan kitchen and living room, as well as a wet room with a shower.
All apartments are linked to a fire alarm which is tested regularly.
There are local shops on Church Road and Altofts.Castleford and Wakefield town centres are a short bus ride away from the bus stop on Church Road.
Across all our schemes we like to help create a strong sense of community, and we do this by bringing together like - minded people through our programme of regular activities. Residents can enjoy bingo, attend coffee mornings, or take part in quiz nights or monthly social outings.
Silkstone Court has been designed to accommodate a wide range of people’s needs. As well as handrails, it also has a lift and disabled access.
At Silkstone Court support is available when you need it. With an experienced Residential Scheme Manager or Community Support Worker and our Care Link system installed in every home as standard, residents can live with the peace of mind that in the event of an emergency, support can be summoned immediately. Residents will receive the same service 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all year round from WDH. Residents can also tailor the support they receive to suit them, just speak to your Residential Scheme Manager or Community Support Worker about what suits you and your lifestyle.
