Where Can I Find Assisted Living Near Me?

What is assisted living?

As those of retirement age begin to consider needing care in later life, assisted living is increasingly being looked at as a good option to help maintain some independence. Assisted living means that you will live independently in your own apartment, but the facilities offer nursing and care staff onsite, to attend to individuals with care needs at any given time. 

Rangeford Villages offers assisted living across five beautiful retirement villages in the UK: Wadswick Green in Wiltshire, Mickle Hill in North Yorkshire, Siddington Park in Cirencester, Homewood Grove in Chertsey and Strawberry Fields in Cambridgeshire. Plans for a further retirement community in Dorking, Surrey have just been announced.

How does assisted living work at Rangeford Villages?

Rangeford retirement villages have an integrated lifestyle and we offer facilities like restaurants, bars, gyms, hairdressers, community halls, cinema and gardens. Residents are encouraged to get involved with as much or as little as they like, but there are endless opportunities to socialise with other residents of a similar age with shared interests.

What are the benefits of assisted living?

As we get older, friendships can be harder to find and difficult to maintain. Distance, health, families and several other factors can get in the way of sustaining true friendships. Moving into an integrated retirement community helps provide the residents with a ready-made supportive environment and helps to limit the consequences of being cut off from society.

If you have started to look at assisted living, you will be aware of the benefits of having care on site. In a luxury retirement village, personal and domestic domiciliary care can be provided in people’s homes at an extra cost, if there is a need. Care staff are on site 24/7 and flexible care services are carefully tailored to meet the specific needs of each resident. Care can be from as little as a reablement package, after a fall or a stay in hospital, assistance remaining independent in your own retirement home, through to compassionate end-of-life care. If you and your partner have different care needs, this type of arrangement may suit both of you and allow you to continue living together.

Knowing that there is extra care available on site can help to enhance health and wellbeing for residents, allowing them to live in the moment, knowing that when the time comes, they have the home care they need at reach.

Often as people get older, they feel more isolated and are cut off from friends, family and neighbours. We want all of our residents to feel safe, and all of our specially designed retirement properties are safe and secure. They have a personal alarm communication with an on-site 24-hour response team and there is video and audio door entry for the building entrance door to ensure you know who you are letting in. They are also fitted with a smoke and fire alarm in each apartment which is also connected to the on-site 24-hour response team. Residents can have complete peace of mind knowing their security is top priority . There will always be someone on hand in case of emergencies and you can rest assured that your property is safe whilst you are away from home.

We create beautiful, aspirational places for residents over 60 to enjoy later life, in safe, secure and homely surroundings. We welcome communities of people who want to enjoy life to the full and guarantee that your friends and family will love to visit. Each retirement village is unique, with its own character and core amenities, creating relaxing, yet vibrant environments where new friendships are made, and everyone is welcomed. You can find out about each one here. Which one takes your fancy?

We know that considering a move to a retirement village is a very personal one and a choice that has to feel right for you. Our village sales advisors are always available at the end of the phone to discuss and talk through any questions you may have.
