St John & St Anne
St John & St Anne is a local almshouse charity, founded in Oakham in 1399, which now provides housing for retired people who want to maintain their independence. With two sites in Oakham and one in Uppingham, each benefiting from its own Common Room for social activities, we provide housing for over 100 people. In both Uppingham and Oakham our properties are located within easy walking distance of the  town centres and all the amenities they provide.

We offer accommodation within a friendly community with the added security of a 24 hour emergency call system. This type of housing is best suited to people who can live independently in their own home. If required a visitor service is available by needs assessment; separate charges apply.
All properties are self-contained consisting of a hall, living room, kitchen, one or two bedrooms and bathroom and are fully central heated. The flats have a door entry system for security. Sadly pets are not permitted (with the exception of caged birds).

Each community has its own social life; various activities are arranged such as coffee mornings, games events, lunches, visiting entertainers, etc. Of course it is an individual’s own choice whether or not to participate.

Below are quotes from current resident’s of St John & St Anne.  

A lovely environment to live with peace of mind regarding maintenance. The community spirit seems to keep the residents young. Its just lovely to sit in the spacious gardens during summer months with neighbours or just quiet reading (St Anne’s Close, Oakham).

We love living here because we have a lovely flat in pleasant surroundings. It’s very close to a good variety of shops, a Tescos, the library and a post office. There is usually someone to pass the time of day with when you leave your flat, and there are opportunities to meet and mingle with other residents at social evenings and events or on coffee mornings if you desire.

William Dalby House is part of a small complex, situated in a pleasant town, close to shops and amenities. The establishment is well run by a competent and friendly staff, and should a situation arise requiring assistance help is never far away. Living here my wife and I feel secure, happy and relaxed, what more should we need.
