Chorley Extra Care

Chorley has one established extra care facility, Primrose Gardens and another Tatton Gardens, under development and set to open in this autumn.

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.

Primrose gardens began its journey on the site of the long stay car park on Fleet Street in Chorley town centre, where the demolition of the ambulance hall and the former primrose cottage, which inspired its name today was undertaken.

  • sports and leisure
  • entertainment
