About Inspired Villages Land & Development Team
We are Inspired Villages, the leading developers and operators in the retirement village sector. We believe that people deserve a little luxury in later life that shouldn’t cost the earth. We offer a choice of beautiful homes centred on its residents, offering them their very own wellness spa, bistro-café, landscaped gardens, village concierge and maintenance team. This is Inspired and this is our ethos, putting 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.
An Inspired Village is a purpose-built community where residents can enjoy outstanding facilities along with flexible and responsive care and support that is available around the clock to enable individuals to remain independent in their own homes for longer – and in most cases, for life.
Each Village offers a retirement lifestyle built on knowledge, expertise and ethics, where our passion and understanding can be found in the fabric of every building, and 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 older people.
Our experienced team is responsible for developing entire communities – secure environments where people can enjoy and explore, be free and independent, yet receive tailored, flexible and supportive care all within the privacy of their own one- or two-bedroom apartment. Inspired Villages allows residents the flexibility to transfer between the different types of accommodation e.g. from the Independent Living Units to the Close Care Units, without the major and often distressing upheaval of physical relocation. By remaining in the same community there is a continuity of relationships, as well as care and support staff.
The Inspired Villages vision of creating distinctive and crucially ‘non-institutional’ environments requires architectural excellence. The design of the retirement village will carefully consider scale, massing and detailing of buildings. Inspired Villages’ retirement communities provide a domestic, homely environment, rather than institutional environment.
We are motivated by the admiration and respect we have for our residents, their families, and the lifestyle they desire and deserve. We believe that great places are measured not by the quality of the architecture but by the emotions they provoke in the people who experience them… Our residents, their families, visitors and also our staff and their hard-working ethos, all these factors make our Villages great places for all to enjoy.
