Yew Tree Court and Rosewood Court within Moor Allerton Care Centre have 70 one and two bedroom apartments providing purposebuilt retirement living with care. Of these, 45 are designated for people of varying dependency, 20 specifically for people living with dementia, and a further five flats owned by Leeds CCG for intermediate care. In 2005, MHA opened the Bay Tree Centre, following a special local appeal.
A key donor to the appeal was the Garfield Weston Foundation, which gave half a million pounds towards a facility that offers day care for up to 20 people, in a stateoftheart building. In addition, the complex houses a caf, hair salon, a number of communal lounges, and within Bay Tree there is an aromatherapy room, a large lounge and a bright, airy entrance.
As well as Yew Trees main garden, tended predominantly by tenants themselves, Rosewood and Bay Tree also have secure gardens that those with dementia can enjoy in safety. The whole concept, believes one resident, is ideal.
