Furlong House

Furlong House

Furlong House is a modern scheme of 51 self-contained one and two-bedroom apartments for older adults who are able to live alone but may need some day-to-day or occasional support.

Located in Bloxwich, Walsall, Furlong House affords residents privacy and independence, with the knowledge that any care and support needed can be provided at any time of the day or night by a dedicated, experienced team. With local shops and transport links close by, residents are able to remain active members of the wider community, and also of Furlong House’s community by using the extensive services or participating in a range of activities provided at the scheme.

In addition to high-quality apartments with an emergency alarm system, Furlong House also sets a new standard in communal facilities with an eat-and-meet café, IT suite, gym, lounge, laundry and hairdressing salon all on site.
