St Vincent’s 60+ sheltered housing scheme at Castlemere Street in Rochdale is celebrating its 20th anniversary on Tuesday 28 October.
Khubsuret House, which means Beautiful House in Urdu, has provided a safe haven for its many residents over the years. Older people, or those with a disability, from all cultures and walks of life come to Khubsuret House and quickly settle in to their new home.
The scheme provides a self-contained apartment, a handyperson and repairs service, communal facilities, such as a lovely lounge, and lots of social activities and health and wellbeing sessions.
Khubsuret House has won many awards over the years, including the Rochdale Diversity Award in 2012.
Scheme Manager, Salma Choudry said: “It has been such a pleasure working for our residents at Khubsuret House, I have made many friends over the years! No two days are the same here, one minute I am hosting a lunch club, the next I am making my daily visit to every resident or helping with a benefit enquiry. I really love it here and I know the residents feel the same.”

It is with much sadness that we report the death of our former Chair, John Towers. John was a Board Member and Chair of St Vincent’s for many years, giving his time, knowledge and experience during that time for the good of St Vincent’s customers and colleagues.
In memory of John and as a lasting legacy, St Vincent’s will be establishing an Arts and Culture Learning Bursary for 2015. John was a great lover of the arts and was actively involved in Bolton Little Theatre.
