Ballyhaunis Social Housing Ltd & Clare Court Clare Court is an independent living housing development for the elderly and has 21 houses. These consist of 14 one bedroomed and 7 two bedroomed terraced bungalows. It was co-funded by grant aid from the Dept. of Environment through Mayo County Council and local contributions. The houses are fitted with features to cater for the needs of the elderly. these include, special non-slip flooring in the kitchen/living area, the hall and bathroom. The bedroom floors are carpeted for comfort with built in wardrobes. Some fo the bathrooms contain baths but, to facilitate the residents who require it, wet rooms are installed in a number of houses. These are equipped with a shower, shower seat and special non-slip floors. the residents benefit from a phone security system and panic button should they need it. Clare Court is centrally located and is just a couple of minutes walk from local Supermarkets, Church and the local Library. It is also only a short walk to the local bus-stop and train station. There are also three Medical Centres close by.

Phase One the 21 houses, was completed in 2005 and the first residents moved into Clare Court in September 2005. Phase two The Communal House was completed in 2008, which also has living accomodation for the Warden. The Wardens Duty includes assisting the residents with any queries and also is responsible for over-seeing any security issues arising in the Complex. Clare Court has a grounds keeper who is responsible for all gardening in Clare Court.

Recycling and helping the environment is also promoted in Clare Court. Compost bins for the use of the residents were installed recently. A new garden plan called the “Four Seasons” is being developed. The plan is to divide the gardens and grounds into four areas. Each area will represent a season, for example winter, summer etc, and these areas will include flowers, shrubs and other plants suited to the climates of each season. This will hopefully provide colour and substance throughout the year to Clare Court.

The Manager of this development is available during office hours 9.30-5.00 Monday to Friday at the Enterprise Centre, Clare St., Ballyhaunis to address any issues or information required regarding Clare Court.
