Almshouses Today

Almshouses are unfurnished dwellings, usually specially designed with the needs of elderly people in mind. There are currently 28 dwellings with both single and double accommodation on the ground and first floor. Each flat is self contained with a lounge, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. All flats have central heating and there is a shared laundry room. The aim is to provide convenient and comfortable accommodation in a setting which allows residents to come and go as they please. Almshouses provide security and residents are encouraged to make friends and to share a wider social life through use of the communal lounge and other facilities where they are available.

An important factor in our Almshouses is the presence of a Scheme Manager and an emergency call system to every home. In an emergency, such as a sudden illness or after a fall, a resident can quickly get help. In addition, there are many other facilities designed to make daily life as easy as possible and to foster a sense of community, and to encourage neighbors to show consideration and support for each other. 

The Scheme Manager is currently Mrs Ann Haywood, Nicholas Chamberlaine's Almshouses, All Saints Square, Bedworth, Warwickshire, CV12 8NR.

Coffee Mornings are held in the Residents Lounge on the first Tuesday of every month from 10 a.m. when bacon sandwiches and other delights are served. The general public are warmly invited.

If you, or someone you know, is interested in living in one of the flats you may want to refer to our Becoming a Resident for details on how to apply.
