Enjoying a fulfilling retirement lifestyle
Many residents have made the choice to downsize from their large family homes to something smaller, freeing them up to do the things they enjoy most – whether that is more travelling, fulfilling a lifelong ambition, learning something new, or simply enjoying a slower paced life.
All of our retirement villages have one thing in common – a very active social calendar set up by the residents, for the residents.
It doesn’t take long for people to find others with similar interests and before long, new clubs and societies are established and regular get togethers enjoyed either on-site or on external visits.
Typical day in a retirement village
A typical day could be breakfast in your own home; a wander over to the clubhouse for mid-morning coffee with friends followed by a walk around the landscaped grounds. Lunch may be in the village restaurant or at home – then maybe attendance at one of the special interest groups followed by afternoon tea in the conservatory. Then home. But it doesn’t have to be like that. The choice is entirely yours – that is the beauty of life in a retirement village.
Some residents even choose to lock up their retirement cottage, bungalow or apartment in the winter and go to warmer climes, safe in the knowledge that the on-site staff are keeping an eye on it in their absence.
The landscaped grounds are manicured and summer get togethers or impromptu games of croquet, putting or bowls can be enjoyed before an early evening drink in the bar. This is life in a retirement village.
Set against this backdrop is the option of additional domiciliary help should it be needed; and in many of our villages there is a wider range of care services available for residents. Peace of mind is so important to residents and their families.
