It's a tricky business to find a retirement village provides apartments or cottages with large rooms and 3 or 4 bedrooms. But I think I have found one!
Lynwood Retirement Village set in Sunninghill near Ascot is set to build several large retirement homes and they should be completed by the summer of 2017. The village provides everything you could possibly want; an indoor pool, gym, spa, hydrotherapy, hair salon, village hall, library and a care home.
Now that my husband is beginning to settle into his care home, I wanted to write and thank you for all your help and expertise in finding a suitable care home for him at a time when I was finding life very difficult.
I do not think I could have managed without you. I appreciated your practical support in organising all the visits and even return visits with other members of my husband’s family.
Your knowledge of how to assess a home and to know what to look for in any assessment cut out hours of my time trying to understand reports, particularly at a time when I could not think straight. Your understanding of my emotional situation was a real blessing.
Although the care home we chose is not in my immediate neighbourhood, I am still convinced that it suits his needs and he will settle in well to this new environment.
To find an expert in the unchartered waters of care homes at a time of personal distress was wonderful.
Very many thanks.
With every good wish
