Our communities boast a range of amenities including a large restaurant dining area, where residents can enjoy a choice of freshly cooked meals three times daily, a library; an activities and games room; coffee lounge, hairdressing and beauty salon; TV lounge; laundry room on every floor; as well as a private minibus and beautifully maintained landscaped gardens. All our communities are supported by a live-in management team who are available round the clock and can be contacted via an emergency pull cord system.
We will refurbish your apartment ready for your arrival and you are of course free to bring your own furnishings and personal effects. All suites have their own heating controls and dining is a shared experience enjoyed by all with restaurant quality food and a choice of menu for breakfast, lunch and supper every day. Apartments are cleaned every week, with bed linen and towels freshly laundered on-site. A dedicated activities team ensures that there is a varied and daily programme of recreation involving shared activities within the home and trips to places of local interest in our very own minibus.
Our apartments are covered by a monthly rental charge that covers all the living costs mentioned (including building insurance, maintenance, council tax, electricity, water etc.), all meals and services. The only bills residents need pay are for personal telephone and broadband provision as well as contents insurance. This is described further on The Monthly Charge Explained page.
With everything taken care of you'll have time to do the things you enjoy most, whether it is enjoying an active and stress free retirement or sharing in the company of others.
