Meal service

Yarlington Housing Group - Meal ServiceWe offer a two-course lunchtime meal service across nine of our extra care schemes, available to all residents, and members of the wider community.

Highly trained, professional housekeepers oversee the meal. And we work in close partnership with our suppliers, Apetito, to provide the best possible dining experience. We also run themed events throughout the year, where you can enjoy a menu with a seasonal twist.

Meals are available from Monday - Friday all year round, including bank holidays, giving you the reassurance of a healthy, well balanced meal which can be enjoyed with friends, family and neighbours. And there are different food options each day.

All our venues have a very high rating from the food hygiene inspectorate.

Personal Alarm

Yarlington Housing Group - Personal Alarm We provide a market-leading personal alarm service, available to all. It includes a main unit, which sits by the phone, and a portable pendant worn on the wrist, or round the neck.

At the press of a button you’ll be connected to our partners at Eldercare, and be able to talk through a loudspeaker in your home. Eldercare are trained to help. They’ll call 999, or your next of kin, if necessary.

The alarm service operates 24/7. And the equipment is quick and easy to install. All you need is an active landline.

With no minimal sign-up period, and a low weekly charge, the alarm is perfect for providing both peace of mind and independence in your home.
