A friendly community is at the heart of each Rangeford Village, centred around The Pavilion as the hub of social activity. Each village is unique, with its own character and core amenities, creating relaxing, yet vibrant environments where new friendships are made, and old friends and family are welcomed.
At a Rangeford village you can enjoy life. The village's action-packed event programme has something for everyone. You can be as relaxed or as active as you please, and with a wide choice of social activities you’re sure to find lots of like-minded people to share experiences with.
If you require extra support, the Rangeford Care and Housekeeping teams can provide tailored services.
At Rangeford Villages we think there’s no place quite like home – that’s why we’re right behind those people who wish to remain at home and independent for as long as it’s possible to do so.
Our Care team specialises in providing dependable, high quality personal domiciliary care and support services. Our flexible Care and Assisted Living plans are carefully tailored to meet the specific needs of each client.
Whatever the frequency and level of support required, the Rangeford Care name is a guarantee that it will always be a consistent, professional and rewarding experience for the client.
"The workshop is a great addition to the excellent amenities we already have at Mickle Hill. It was erected in 2019, and since then we have insulated it, lined out the inside, and painted it out. We have fitted it out with a purpose-made long joiners bench, a large table top for various activities, and a smaller bench so wheelchair users can be included as well. Two wood carving kits have been donated so we have lots of tools and equipment.
About 3 or 4 residents frequently use the workshop but all are welcome to use the tools and power tools, under supervision. On leaving school I had an apprenticeship in carpenter and joinery followed by a career in, or attached to, the Building Industry, so I enjoy sharing my skills and experience with others. We have a number of lady residents who are keen to make something in wood, not having had the opportunity before, and the making of bird boxes has been suggested."
"I founded the Musical Memories group about four years ago now. I’d been at Wadswick Green for a few months, and I thought I would set a group up and see what the interest would be. Music is really connected to people’s memories, and I find for over 60s it’s particularly true with music from the 50s, 60s, and 70s. I noticed how easily people remembered music and lyrics, so I thought that maybe playing music and discussing it could be a good idea.
We’ve had the Musical Memories group going for some time now, so we know each other quite well, it’s really good. When we first came to Wadswick Green we didn’t know anybody, so it’s a great way to meet people. You get to learn about people’s backgrounds, because they reminisce about their life, what they were doing when a certain song was playing on the radio... It’s a lot better than just talking about the weather!"
"We first made contact with the Yvette Jones [Mickle Hill sales advisor] last September when we visited Mickle Hill to report back to my mother-in-law who lived in Somerset at the time. Yvette has been magnificent throughout our engagement leading to the decision to purchase the Apartment in January and through to completion and moving in last week.
Yvette has a great attitude and a warm personality and was very supportive throughout our evaluation and decision-making process. Enquires were always answered promptly and nothing was too much trouble. As an example, she even broke her Christmas leave period to allow my mother-in-law to visit Mickle Hill whilst visiting relatives in the north. It is not an exaggeration to say that Yvette actually made the entire purchase process enjoyable!"
"I’m looking forward to the re-opening of the facilities especially the swimming pool and the new putting green, as well as enjoying time with my grandchildren. My daughter’s family is coming to stay next month from Berkshire, and they will have the pleasure of staying in the Wadswick Green guest suite. Similarly, my son and his family are coming to stay in the summer, which happens to coincide with several birthdays. Although I have been able to keep in regular touch with my grandchildren over zoom and facetime, I now haven’t seen them for 16 months. It will be wonderful to catch up with them in person"
"Qigong provides me with a good opportunity to meet other residents and get to know them, it's very sociable. There are about 15-20 people in each class and although we all take it seriously, we do have fun and laughter. It has become an important part of my life as it helps to keep me mentally and physically fit and had I not moved here I would never have taken it up.
Our coach Nina holds classes twice a week - one standing class and another sitting down version for less mobile residents. I attend both and have found that they help with my balance, mobility and flexibility. Nina was amazed to hear that I was 91 at that time and was still able to get so involved with the classes."
If the last 18 months have taught us anything, it is to appreciate the little things in life. Taking a walk with family or friends, going out for a meal or dropping into a yoga class. These simple activities make a big difference to our day and our physical and mental wellbeing. The last 18 months have also shown us that more and more couples and individuals are looking at the option of moving to a retirement village. They can provide an easy and reassuring way of living, with fantastic amenities, all with the comfort of knowing there are friends and the village team members nearby.
