Berwickshire Housing Association’s Independent Living offers a high-quality affordable housing option for people aged 55 or over.
Living as part of the local community of Berwickshire is what makes our Independent Living Courts in Duns (Boston Court), Coldstream (Gowanlea) and Eyemouth (Linkim Court) special.
Independent Living offers a lifestyle choice in an ambient setting for you to live independently, healthy, and happy at home for longer. Designed exclusively for the over 55’s, you are assured of a warm welcome, with like-minded neighbours who will quickly become good friends.
You can choose from studio or one-bedroom apartments, all of which are finished to a high standard, with assistive technology to allow you to maximise your independence. BHA’s dedicated staff are on site from Monday through to Friday to help you with any housing related queries and provide that extra re-assurance, should you require it.
Housing Proactive (https://www.housingproactive.com/), Alertacall’s housing management service, has also been introduced at BHA’s independent living courts. All customers are provided with a tablet device upon signing up to your new home. This maintains regular contact with you using specially developed technology and a highly trained contact centre team. The system confirms your safety, improves communication, and gives you more flexibility in how and when you engage with your housing service.
