Nehemiah Retirement Schemes: For Independent, Affordable, Comfortable Living

Nehemiah has eight innovative retirement living schemes across the West Midlands, all designed to provide you with the freedom of independent living, combined with the peace of mind that comes with living in a friendly and supportive community.

Each retirement living scheme provides affordable, comfortable self-contained flats that come with a range of on-site facilities and support to enhance the health, wellbeing and lifestyle of all our residents.

Our retirement living schemes are for anyone over the age of 55 who wants to enjoy their independence and make the most of later life while living in a safe and happy community.

Community Within A Community

Your self-contained flat is your home and you are free to live life as fully as you wish while enjoying total peace of mind that you are within a happy and supportive community of fellow residents, and that you are all also living within the local community.

There are communal spaces in each retirement living scheme so you can socialise as much as you want to, and each scheme is located in the heart of the local community with easy access to shops and services nearby. This also means it is easier to stay close to family and friends as you can stay near the areas you know well.

What Do Our Retirement Living Schemes Offer?

Each self-contained flat within our retirement living schemes has its own lounge, kitchen and bathroom with either a walk-in shower or bath, and at least one bedroom. You have the space to create a comfortable home and enjoy an independent lifestyle, knowing that there is support when you need it.

As a guide, our retirement living schemes offer:

  • Affordable, comfortable homes
  • Freedom to decorate your flat as you wish
  • 24-hour warden call alarm system
  • Communal spaces for socialising
  • Easy access to local shops and services
  • Extra support and care packages if needed

Living at one of our schemes, you will feel comfortable and safe in your own home as security comes as standard with our Telecare service that helps to support and enhance your ability to live independently for longer.
