An open day was held at Falcon and Griffin extra care scheme to mark recent major refurbishments and thank the hard work of staff and contractors.
Falcon and Griffin is a scheme which helps customers to live independently for as long as possible and gives them the security and privacy of having their own front door. It gives customers their independence and may prevent them from having to go into residential care or hospital.
Councillor Mike Connolly, leader of Bury Council, said: “I was very pleased to be there at the open day. This is a fabulous project and I am pleased to see Bury Council and Six Town Housing investing in quality services for older people.”
