46 Retirement Living with Care Places
At the heart of the busy Devon town of Barnstaple are the 45 retirement living with care apartments that make up Norah Bellot Court. The purpose-built community was opened in 2000. It benefited from a substantial legacy of £0.75 million, left by Mrs Norah Bellot, a local benefactress, and gifted to MHA through the Anglican Diocese of Exeter. It is, says one resident, “a place with a lovely atmosphere – a real home from home. I love that I am able to get out and work in the garden, and I appreciate all that the Manager and staff do around the place.”
The benefits of being sited in the middle of a busy market town are immense and most days see activities on site for the tenants.
Norah Bellot Court plays its own part within the town through the community’s on-site restaurant. It caters not only for residents but also for older members of the community. Many residents are drawn from the town (some having got to know the community through the meals service) whilst others have moved from around the country to be closer to their families. Friends and family are not only welcome at Norah Bellot Court but are an integral part of it – often becoming volunteers in their own right and helping out with events and functions.
At Norah Bellot Court, we now provide 24-hour staffing on site. We deliver around the clock support and care tailored to individual needs.
