Pat Delighted to Bring Beloved dog, Winnie to new Home

“I am over the moon”, says Patricia, “I grew up around here, so it is wonderful to be back, and I am just thrilled I could bring Winnie with me. In my old home, I was lonely, I never saw anyone and I couldn’t manage the stairs, so I was sleeping in the living room, but I just couldn’t move if I couldn’t take Winnie with me and most places said no, they would not accept pets.”

Firm believers of living with pets, Rapport Housing & Care has embraced a pet policy, enabling residents to bring their pets with them when moving into our care homes, supported homes or housing schemes, wherever possible. Across the organisation’s locations, you’ll meet cats, dogs, rabbits, birds and even chickens at our care home in Tonbridge.

Patricia and Winnie are settling in well in their new home and Winnie isn’t the only four-legged resident at the new Tudeley Lane housing scheme in Tonbridge, which opened its doors only a couple of weeks ago, as another dog lives just down the hall and a cat will soon be joining them.

Rosewell House comprises 59 one and two-bedroom apartments alongside a variety of communal facilities. The apartments are available for those aged 55 and over and there are a small number of apartments remaining on an affordable rent basis and for sale through Older Person’s Shared Ownership, contact us to find out more.

Do you require 24 hour care and support or are you largely independent, in need of a little bit of support?

Question 2

Would you prefer to rent a bedsit within a small house or to buy or rent an apartment within a scheme?
