The market town of Wirksworth in rural Derbyshire is the location for Waltham House; an extra care housing scheme comprising 39 flats, including approximately 1/3 available for rent, plus two respite flats.

Although the people of Wirksworth wanted Waltham House to continue as a nursing home, they were persuaded by Housing 21 that an extra care facility would be a more flexible option.

Residents must have lived in the area, or have a strong family connection, to be eligible to live at Waltham House. Allocations are based on a combination of housing need and care need.

The development also incorporates a well-utlised domiciliary care service to the local area, together with a range of facilities and events open to the wider population. The restaurant is particularly popular with the locals and connections with the town's schools are strong.
