We worked closely with care providers Sanctuary to create a design that would offer comfort, independence and peace of mind to residents as well as a range of shared faciities that would help build a community for residents.
Jazz Court is thoughtfully designed with the needs of older people in mind enabling people to live an independent lifestyle with access to care and support as needed. There are 60 units: spacious one and two-bed apartments, good access throughout, simple wayfinding, communal areas to encourage socialising – a café, library and hairdresser are all on site. Gardens are landscaped with easy walkways, plentiful seating, raised beds and a garden shed for those who want to actively garden or potter.
Jazz Court is part of the larger Middle Deepdale masterplan being developed in partnership with Keepmoat, Kebbell Homes, North Yorkshire County Council, Scarborough Borough Council, Groundwork North Yorkshire and P+HS Architects.

County Councillor Clare Wood, North Yorkshire’s Executive Member for Health and Adult Services added: “Extra Care is proving a highly successful solution to supporting the needs of older people while enabling them to live in a home of their own. “It allows people to maintain independence within their own communities secure in the knowledge that round-the-clock care and support is available according to need, coupled with facilities such as a restaurant, hairdressers’ salon, hobbies rooms, library facilities and other resources.”
