Independent Living

The Independent Living scheme allows over-55s to buy spacious modern apartments with care available as and when you need it.

Independent Living from Orbit offers you a different retirement lifestyle. You will own a purpose-built apartment with the added benefit of access to a range of communal facilities.

Each apartment is designed to meet Lifetime Homes Standards. Lifetime Homes are all about flexibility and adaptability; homes are carefully designed to enable you to live in a spacious and secure home which can support your changing needs over time making day to day life that little bit easier. Design touches such as high level plug sockets, high level ovens and walk-in showers ensure residents live in comfort with all the conveniences you would expect from a modern new home. Should you require extra help at any stage, Orbit can provide as much support as you need.

At our Independent Living Developments you have the extra peace of mind that comes with having an on-site Scheme Manager there for support. There’s a secure door entry system and a 24-hour emergency call system so you can rest easy in the knowledge that help is on hand if you ever need it.

Moving home is a big decision but with Independent Living you stay in control with complete freedom to live your life as you wish. When you choose one of our Independent Living developments you’ll join a new community where you are free to join in the activities and benefit from the facilities on your doorstep, or simply enjoy your home and your independence.


In order to be eligible to purchase a home at one of our Independent Living developments you must be over 55.
