Life at Trellis House

At Trellis House, you choose the lifestyle that suits you.

In the morning, a local shop can deliver your daily milk or newspaper, and during the day we’ll call you to check you’re okay. After breakfast in your apartment, you might choose to meet friends or take part in one of our regular activities in our communal lounge.

At lunchtime, you have everything you need to prepare lunch for yourself, friends or family in your apartment.

If you fancy a change of scenery, Lavender Park is just a short walk away. You could also take a stroll along the River Wandle, or visit the

nearby Tandem Centre for a spot of shopping.

In the afternoon, you might join us for one of our regular social events, enjoy a game of bingo, or perhaps take part in an exercise class in the fitness room. It might even be the day when the children from the local primary school visit.

By evening, you may want to take it easy after all the activity! If not, you can always join friends to watch TV, or for a chat, a game of cards or a mutual hobby.

I like living at Trellis House because there is always something different to do and someone to talk to. Everyone is really friendly and I have made lots of friends.
