William Cubitt Lodge

William Cubitt Lodge for SHIP
 
As part of our regeneration project on the Isle of Dogs, William Cubitt Lodge has replaced our previous sheltered scheme, St Johns House, and provides shared ownership homes for over 55s. In total there are 29 homes, 21 for sheltered housing and 8 for shared ownership.
 
 
Residents benefit from large and airy rooms which bring in plenty of natural light. New washing machines, cookers and fridge freezers have all been provided. Fitted kitchens with individually chosen worktops and carefully thought out easy-access baths and showers are some of the features inside the flats. Communal areas include a fresh modern shared lounge with kitchen and garden area.
 
William Cubitt Lodge has been designed and focused around residents. All homes meet the HAPPI (Housing our Aging Population: Panel for Innovation) standard. We can constantly adapt our services to the changing needs of older people. 
 
'I didn't want to leave St. John's house, I wanted us to be left alone but now I have moved I love my new home. It's huge, the view is fabulous and all the mod cons that are mine. I just wish I was younger so I could enjoy my new home for longer!'
- Daisy, resident of William Cubitt Lodge
