Sometimes you just want to make living in your own home a bit easier and a retirement village can offer a very good solution.
There are a growing number of retirement villages in the UK and they offer everything from an apartment with a caretaker on site - all the way to a luxury penthouse apartment with a clubhouse and a spa and swimming pool, hairdressing salon, restaurant, bistro, library, snooker room, the list goes on....
Several of my clients have been interested in this option, rather than staying at home and managing a large family house. The retirement village allows you to live autonomously without the hassle of managing the garden or worrying whether the leaves are blocking the guttering.
Once you have decided what part of the country you want to live in you can research the villages that are available and find out what they offer. They all seem to provide something slightly different, so you need to make the phone call before you get in your car.
Alternatively you can get in touch with me and I will do the research for you and make the phone calls - and then drive you around so that you can view them all!
"Thanks very much for your help Debbie. I have actually passed your details on to a relative of a close friend of mine who lives in in the west country but has a recently widowed mother with Alzheimer's living in Kent. The daughter has a demanding job, a husband and teenage children so I thought she might benefit from the services you are able to provide. Jill from Tonbridge".
