Hard hats and retirement villages

At Chosen with Care we do like to go beyond the call of duty for our clients.  Yesterday found us at a building site in Haywards Heath looking at an extremely impressive retirement village called St Georges Park.  In order to view the remaining apartments we had to don boots, hard hat, protective glasses, gloves and the obligatory high viz jacket.

St Georges Park

The faciliteis are among the best we have seen and include an indoor swimming pool, spa, library, dining room, bistro, 240 acres of very attractive grounds with wild orchids and wild meadows.

The village is owned by a charity and there is a church and concert hall in the middle.  It really is quite impressive. 

We have now looked at most of the retirement villages in the South East of England, so do get in touch if you would like some inside information.

Just a quick update – I’ve now visited all but one of the Nursing Homes in the report, and we have decided on Gloucester House in Sevenoaks, which Mum is happy with. It is actually 5 minutes from my Brother’s house, but we didn’t even know it was there so we are grateful for Chosen with Care for letting us know if it’s existence! Mum moves in during week commencing 30th January, so she should be settled in in time for her Birthday so we will have a little ‘room-warming/birthday party’ that weekend. I think that being so close to my brothers house will help her settle in and feel at home. thanks so much for your help.
