Your Community Connect: Searching For A Parent

Whether you have been exploring retirement options for your parents for some time, or security in retirement for your parents has become a new concern in recent weeks, there are still ways to learn more about the retirement village lifestyle, property options and community – whilst staying socially distant.

In this area of Your Community Connect we take a look at some of the more frequently asked questions of those exploring options on behalf of their parents, whilst also looking at why it is even more important to be planning for the future right now.

Please do also remember: if you would like to learn more about any of our villages then please do get in touch with us. We’re here to help, if you’d like some advice or to discuss your parents’ requirements in more detail, please get in touch either by telephone, or via a video call – we would even be happy to give you a virtual, online tour of a Retirement Village or a particular property.
