In these unprecedented times we have all had to make a few changes, and for Inspired Villages that includes the visitor experience. The safety and wellbeing of our residents, colleagues and our visitors are our top priorities and so we have put in place some protocols that will give you peace of mind that you can still safely visit and start planning the retirement you want, with us.
- Pre-booked appointments only
Whereas in the past, visitors would sometimes walk in on the day without an appointment, we now ask that everyone pre-books their visit in advance to help us regulate the number of visitors. On arrival, we do take the temperature of visitors. This means you can safely tour the village and the home you are interested in with appropriate social distancing.
When you pre-book, our friendly village advisors will issue a health screening questionnaire to ensure no visitors with coronavirus symptoms are coming into the village.
- PPE and hand sanitiser
We please ask that all visitors wear a face mask when they come into any indoor space within our villages and to use the hand sanitiser provided to help prevent the potential spread of coronavirus.
Our village teams will also be wearing PPE and we have enhanced cleaning protocols in place that mean everywhere you will be shown around will have been cleaned to an exceptionally high standard.
- Village facilities
Visitors currently can’t come into our central communal facilities, to help keep residents safe. We are very happy to arrange for a virtual tour of these facilities though so you can see them from the comfort and safety of your own sofa.
Furthermore, all our villages have spacious, beautifully landscaped grounds with outdoor facilities, such as croquet lawns, wildflower meadows, petanque pistes and much more (if you love the arts you must visit Great Alne Park with its lovely grass amphitheatre). Our village advisors will be very happy to show you around these parts of the villages during your visit.
Again for safety reasons we are sadly not able to introduce you to our residents, which is a shame as they are a very friendly bunch. However, you can hear what a lot of them have to say about living in an Inspired village here.
Can we help?
If you have any other concerns about visiting, please don’t hesitate to contact the village advisors and they will do their best to help. We are dedicated to helping people live the retirement they want, and we will do our best to accommodate a safe visit – which we hope will be the first step on your journey with Inspired Villages. Call 0800 138 0235 now.
