An area of above average affluent achievers with income to spend on improved health and social care.
The health of people in Eden is generally better than the England average. However, the ageing nature of Eden’s population presents significant challenges for the district.
More than half the District is described as ‘Comfortable Communities’. In general terms the indigenous population has the capacity to invest in private health and social care.
Woodlands Penrith offer 54 independent living apartments with support services provided by an experienced staff team, which ensures a 24-hour service is available to all residents. McCarthy and Stone are in the process of building a similar facility at Pele Court, which is selling extremely well with a clear demonstation of demand.
BUPA offer a range of facilities in four properties around Penrith which offer a wide range of various care packages.
Pressure is growing for more health and social care services to be provided outside of hospitals and closer to people’s homes. There are likely to be continued austerity measures and encouragement from Government to private firms to provide a wider range of health and social care services. The health and social care sector is set to expand. Taking into account the inherent advantages Eden offers in terms of accessibility and magnificent scenery, Eden is well placed to take advantage of private investment. The District Council are keen to discuss any requirements from prospective private sector investors to encourage expansion of this sector for the benefit of the residents of Eden.
The Leader or Chief Executive of Eden District Council will meet with any prospective investors in the Health and Social Care sector within a maximum of two weeks or sooner if possible.
Eden is a great place to inspire and motivate you to achieve your maximum potential in life. Stuart Lancaster, Former Head Coach for the England Rugby Football Union
