Independent Living

We want everyone in Elmbridge to have a safe, comfortable place to call home. Our two independent living schemes offer accommodation for people aged over 55 who want to live in a safe and caring environment.

Flats in both of our schemes - Fenner House and Mayfield - are suitable for single people and couples.

Our housing offers the benefit of independent living without the worries that most homeowners or private tenants face.

To apply to our independent living schemes, you must have a connection to Elmbridge and be aged over 55 years. We can consider applications from anyone in receipt of housing (and other) benefits or those who are paying directly.

Support for residents

The Residential Officers at both Fenner House and Mayfield offer a daily welfare check for those who need it. They can also help to answer resident questions or signpost to local services for support with personal, financial and emotional issues. This can be anything from joining a book club to finding local groups.

Help from our Residential Officers can be adjusted over time, as residents’ needs change. We aim to support independent living for as long as possible.

Our flats

Mayfield is a lovely place to live, with very friendly people, who will always help you. It is very comfortable and I am very happy.

Our flats are completely self-contained and residents have access to a 24/7 on-call system in case of emergencies. There are communal spaces available for all residents to use, including beautiful landscaped gardens, a lounge and kitchen, and laundry facilities. Both schemes also have a therapy room which can be booked out for visiting hairdressers, podiatrists, beauticians and similar personal care professionals.

We offer a range of social activities for residents to choose from. These include Christmas meals, a summer outing, on-site BBQs, coffee mornings and afternoon tea, singing groups and a gardening club plus craft sessions and film afternoons. We can also help with transport to the local high street for shopping, visiting the bank and trips to garden centres, local markets and other places of interest.


Our schemes are located at:
Mayfield, 74 Hersham Road, Walton on Thames, Surrey, KT12 5NU
Fenner House, Mayfield Road, Walton on Thames, Surrey, KT12 5PL
