Chorley has two extra care facilities Primrose Gardens and Tatton Gardens.

Each combines accommodation with care and support services. It is a lot like sheltered housing, but offers help with personal care, household chores and accessing the local community, allowing everyone the freedom and independence of having their own front door.

Applications are being taken for both facilities now.
