“Charters was perfect for Mum and Dad’s requirements. Everything they needed is here, from social events, having a small shop and access to carers, which is very reassuring” – Resident JK’s daughter, Louise

“We want to keep our independence and keep doing things outside of the village and then as time goes on and our world becomes smaller – I may need to give up driving for instance – I can get more involved in village activities. It’s all about a healthy balance” – Residents, PS & RS
