Considering a Retirement Property?
Have you ever thought about living in one of our retirement properties?
These apartments are not communal homes or rest homes, but simply homes where you can enjoy your full independence with the added bonus of security and peace of mind together with a friendly atmosphere.
All of our retirement apartments have:
- central heating
- double glazing
- bathroom, kitchen and lounge
There are two types of retirement apartments:
Category 1 apartments
These apartments may not have all of the communal facilities of the Category 2 apartments and some of these retirement schemes have a visiting Scheme Manager.
Category 2 apartments
These apartments are all under one roof and have a visiting Scheme Manager.
All of these schemes have a communal lounge where social activities are held. These can include: coffee mornings, bingo, concerts, luncheon clubs, afternoon teas, card evenings, trips out and much more. All residents have use of communal laundry facilities, car parking facilities and landscaped gardens.
24-hour scheme manager service
All of the apartments are connected to a 24-hour, 365 days a year emergency response system, with a pull cord situated in the bathroom which can be used if you ever require assistance. Tenants are also issued with a pendant if they require one.
When the Scheme Manager is on duty they will answer your call. When they are off duty your call is answered, day or night, by the Control Centre who can contact a friend or relative, the doctor, the mobile warden or the emergency services if necessary.
Many of the people who come to join us had felt isolated where they lived or simply wanted to enjoy the company of people with similar interests. They now enjoy a friendly atmosphere and feel secure whilst remaining independent and have the peace of mind that assistance is available 24 hours a day, should they ever need it.
Don't take our word for it - come and see for yourself! Meet the Scheme Managers and some of the residents for a chat and a cup of coffee. If you like what you see, you can fill an application form in and leave the rest to us. Our contact details are in the panel on the right of this page.
