Edna at The Sailings in Southport

With the first blooms of Spring we can look forward to longer days, warmer weather and spending more time outdoors

At Adlington Retirement Living’s developments, you live in idyllic locations.

Pretty waterside settings and stunning countryside views are all visible from the safety and comfort of your own private patio or balcony.

Adlington’s landscaped gardens are maintained by an expert team which means you can exercise your green fingers as much or as little as you wish.

You can also enjoy the peace and serenity of reading a book in a quiet corner, taking afternoon drinks in the summer house or idly watch the world go by.

“It’s nice to have the gardens and the outdoor space here where I can go for some fresh air and exercise without worrying about bumping into people,” says Edna, aged 84, who lives at The Sailings in Southport, Merseyside.

“Moving to the Sailings has been very good for me. I’m very happy.” 

Discovering a community with a zest for life

A thriving community awaits new homeowners, offering new friendships, social occasions and safe activities all on your doorstep.

“I’m looking forward to going to the weekly Physiofit exercise class again when the restrictions lift and going out for lunch as a group now and then,” enthuses Joyce, aged 84, who lives at The Chimes in Cheadle, Greater Manchester. “I’ve made some really good friends here.” 

John and Marcia, aged 83 and 79, who live at The Cottons in Ramsbottom, Bury, in Greater Manchester are looking forward to meeting friends in the sunshine this summer.

“During the first UK lockdown, we used to go and sit in the sun, because the first three months we had beautiful weather. The sun shone every day so we’d see each other walking around and sitting in the gardens. We got to know each other very well and we’ve stayed very good friends.”

And when you want to spend some quiet time in your own company, you have a beautiful, self-contained apartment that you can retreat to.

“My apartment’s gorgeous. I have a one-bedroom apartment and it’s lovely,” says Audrey, aged 85, who lives at The Folds in Romiley, Greater Manchester.

“The best thing I did was move. I love it here.”

Alexandra Johnson, Sales and Marketing Director for Adlington Retirement Living, adds, “Our on-site teams always look for ways to support our homeowners’ happiness and well-being and they’ve really gone the extra mile over the past 12 months.”

Kindness and well-being

Feeling part of a strong community and having a friendly management team on hand to provide help whenever you need it can make a world of difference to owners’ sense of well-being.

“It’s been much better here than it would have been spending lockdown in our previous home,” muses John and Marcia, The Cottons.

Adlington’s retirement communities offer reassurance and practical assistance from its staff, who provide round-the-clock support, 365 days a year.

A sophisticated emergency call system is fitted in every private apartment and also covers the entire building and gardens to give owners’ and their families peace of mind.

“I’ve got a button to press if there’s a problem, which is very good,” explains Rona, aged 84, who lives at The Sailings in Southport, Merseyside.

“When you’re on your own it’s nice to know that there’s somebody at hand if you’ve got a problem.

“The team here reassure me which really helps.” 

 One appealing aspect of Adlington life is the fact that optional, additional, tailored care is available as and when you need it and for as long as you need it.

So if you have an accident extra support can be provided for a short time or long-term.

Alexandra Johnson said: “Our approach to care is personal and tailored to each individual, providing just the right amount to maintain your independance and allowing you to enjoy your retirement to the full.

“It’s completely flexible, so should you find that your requirements change in the future, the discreet care team will be able to accommodate and support you.”
