Retirement Villages

Welcome to Inspired Villages

Our ethos is simple. We put the health and happiness of our residents at the heart of everything we do, with the promise of a life less ordinary for today's generation of retirees.

Everything we do is motivated by the admiration and respect we have for our residents, their families, and the lifestyle they desire and deserve.

This motivation influences every part of an Inspired village - from the service levels of our team through to the planning and design of the village itself.

National Loneliness Week

Nobody deserves to be alone in later life

You may have noticed our brand-new film at the top of this very page!

Did you know that over 2 million people aged 75 and up live alone and can go a whole month without talking to anyone?

We believe it shouldn't be this way. Human connection is key to our wellbeing, which is why it's at the heart of everything we do at our retirement villages. Our communities are warm and welcoming; helping people feel a sense of belonging as soon as they step through our doors and beyond.  You can read our blog here.

Month in focus

Welcome to our July edition! June has been filled with memorable moments across our communities. 
We kicked off with a Summer Garden Party at Millfield Green featuring TV chef John Torode. Guests enjoyed live music, a delicious BBQ, and a Q&A session with John.

Our new show home was launched at Ampfield Meadows with special guest Gloria Hunniford OBE. During Dementia Week, residents at Great Alne came together for a coffee morning to raise awareness and funds for dementia support. We also commemorated the 80th anniversary of D-Day, with Great Alne Park residents visiting Portsmouth Museum to meet veterans while many of our villages enjoyed al-fresco dining to celebrate.

Our community spirit shone at the Edgbaston Dragon Boat Festival, where Great Alne Park residents raced and raised funds for St. Basils Charity. Finally, Gifford Lea embraced the elegance of Royal Ascot with their very own Ladies Day, complete with stylish hats, Prosecco, and delightful pastries.


Loneliness Awareness Week

During Loneliness Awareness Week, our villages hosted various events to combat loneliness. Activities included a shopping event with the Hospice of the Good Shepherd, seated stretch classes, croquet, and a board game café, offering something for everyone. Ledian Gardens enjoyed a day filled with music, table tennis, and a heartwarming visit from children of Leeds and Broomfield Primary School, who brought joy with their singing.

Watch out for our Loneliness Awareness campaign, Dancing Queen, on ITV 3. Together, let’s combat loneliness!
