Broxtowe’s Independent Living Service is all about making life easier. It provides you with the support you need to live as independently as you can.

Moving in to one of our quality apartments gives you peace of mind with support on hand when you need it, a packed programme of social activities and feeling of being safe and secure, without the burden of having to maintain a larger property on your own.
