‘It is not the building or the furniture that make Kingfisher Court. It is the kindness of those on reception, the patience of those who listen to my moans and groans, the smiles of the carers, not forgetting Colin and the restaurant (those lovely omelettes) that make this place a great place to live.’
Valerie, Kingfisher Court resident
Kingfisher Court is a stylish, high quality extra care scheme consisting of 79 one and two bedroom apartments specifically designed for the over 55s. It has been built with your needs in mind - to offer you security, independence and a sense of community in your retirement.
All 79 one and two bedroomed apartments are designed to make life as easy and enjoyable as possible with your own front door, kitchen, bathroom and spacious living area. You can enjoy your own space or take a break from cooking and enjoy a meal in the on-site restaurant, or visit the communal lounge to socialise with friends and neighbours. There is a hairdressing salon for a spot of pampering and landscaped gardens if you fancy a spot of fresh air.
The dedicated care team is on site 24 hours a day and respond to planned care needs and emergency situations ie a fall As a resident you will be assessed and receive a support plan tailored precisely to your needs. Your care plan will be flexible and regularly reviewed to ensure it can change with your care and support needs - no matter how small or large they are.
Kingfisher Court is located in the heart of the popular residential area of Stanground. It benefits from many local amenities, including, local doctors surgeries and dentists; shops and a library, plus popular community churches. There is also a range of community groups offering support and social opportunities outside of the scheme.
Stanground is approximately three miles away from Peterborough City Centre and Kingfisher Court is served by a regular bus service.
Stanground benefits from all the urban services expected, but is right on the edge of the fens, and just a stone’s throw from the peace and tranquillity of the countryside. Stanground Newt Ponds are an important remnant of the historic wet meadow and pond system, offering a vital haven for wildlife, particularly endangered newt species.
