In January, we were officially handed the keys to the flagship extra care scheme in Mill Hill. Built on the site of old sheltered housing accommodation, Moreton Close, the new development is now called Ansell Court.

Ansell Court will provide extra care provision in 53 self-contained one and two-bedroom apartments, which will enable adults with additional care and support needs to live independently. The service will also be able to support people who have dementia to maintain their life skills for longer.

The new extra care development has been named after a fallen Mill Hill soldier and Military Medal for Bravery recipient who served in World War One.

Fittingly, William Ansell’s memory will live on in Ansell Court through its residents who will be able to live prolonged independent lives.

The colour-themed corridors and self-contained flats in Ansell Court are spacious and filled with light. On the ground floor, there is also an inviting communal lounge, a community area with facilities for a coffee shop and a hairdresser’s salon. This will provide hugely beneficial opportunities for interaction with the local community.

If you are, or know somebody who is, interested in an Ansell Court flat please speak to your social worker, who will assess your eligibility.

We look forward to sharing the stories from residents who move into Mill Hill.

Ansell Court is also recruiting for caring, dynamic and highly motivated people to join the team. Interested? Visit The Barnet Group website for more information and to apply online:

The scheme is registered with the Care Quality Commission.
