What our residents say
We’ve had some truly heart-warming messages from our residents over recent weeks. Hearing that our teams have gone the extra mile to check in on residents’ wellbeing, source everyday essentials, and are making surprise deliveries to brighten people’s day, nothing could make us prouder. You’re welcome to read some of the stories here…

Ms C – Inspired Villages resident
"The way we are being looked after during this time is quite remarkable, with the most wonderful staff going out of their way to do what they can for us. The best thing we ever did was moving here three years ago."
Mr M – Inspired Villages resident
"We are very grateful to you and your staff for the way in which you are doing everything possible to keep all the residents safe and well in these challenging times. We had an excellent lunch today brought to our door as an example. Thank you."
Mr & Mrs C – Inspired Villages resident
"I was doubtful two years ago about joining a community of all older people, but it has been a blessing. Everyone is friendly, we have plenty of ways of being sociable and we now have excellent support during this current situation."
J & M – Inspired Villages resident
"We are very grateful for all the care you are taking in looking after our wellbeing. You are dealing with a difficult situation most expertly, and we thank you so much for your help. The lunches are really delicious and certainly appreciated."
Mrs O – Inspired Villages resident
"Once again the Food and Beverage team gave us an evening of delicious, beautifully presented food and wonderful service. How lucky are we to have this lovely restaurant within walking distance of our apartment."
Mr M – Inspired Villages resident
"A big thank you to you & the team for responding so quickly and efficiently to the current situation. The takeaway service is so helpful, and much needed at this time. It will certainly help with the great difficulty many of us are finding ordering online."
Mary Ewing, 78, Durrants Village Resident
“We’ve been really lucky with the village team here, they are wonderful, I can’t fault them, they’ve been absolutely brilliant and gone out of their way to support us all.
“The retirement villages are a really good concept because so many people in the wider community are really lonely, but if you’re lonely in a place like this you’ve got no one to blame but yourself!”
Carol Parkinson, 80, Bramshott Place
“I’ve certainly not felt lonely, the village grounds are 50 odd acres, so I like to go for woodland walks with a friend and look at the baby ducklings on the pond. You can go for a 40-minute walk but you end up seeing a dozen people and stopping to chat so that walk turns into an hour and a half!”
“There’s usually lots of activities at the village, I’ve volunteered behind the bar and at the village shop and there’s line dancing and Scottish dancing. You’d have to be a very strange person if you couldn’t find something to do here!"
