​Award-winning later-living developer Rangeford Villages is launching a new wellness initiative

Branded ‘Wellbeing by Rangeford Villages’, an all-encompassing approach to wellness is being integrated into village life as part of the group’s mission to empower residents to nurture their lifestyle choices.

The message is simple. ‘Do not exist but thrive’.

Retirement can be a daunting prospect: it can mean feeling a loss of identity after years of successful employment, the wrench of leaving a much-loved family home or mourning the loss of a loved one.

Rangeford Villages wants to ensure that every resident’s emotional, physical and mental need is supported in all three of its vibrant retirement communities.

When someone moves into a Rangeford Villages development, the Wellbeing Team will help them transition into their new life.

Wellbeing plans are entirely led by residents, so they can choose how much or how little they want to be involved.

The Four Foundations of Wellbeing; purpose, health, community and environment, have been expertly developed to provide an all-encompassing approach to living a happy, healthy and thriving lifestyle.

Purpose

Village teams will help residents establish a routine and identify the extent they want to participate in village life and help them maintain their identity and sense of purpose.

Rangeford Villages offers an array of activities across its developments including walking clubs, prayer group, knitting, golf, Zumba, arts and crafts and book clubs.

Residents can choose to be as active as they please and are encouraged to set up and lead their own social groups and clubs.

Health

This is where the Wellbeing Team can support residents with their physical and mental health.

Residents will be asked what kind of physical activity they enjoy, whether they would be open to trying new activities, how physically and mentally healthy they are, and what support they would like with nutrition, sleep, stress, health conditions and cognitive health.

The village team can provide homeowners with access to the best local sleep therapists, nutritionists, chiropodists, osteopaths, and physiotherapists as required.

Community

A resident’s bespoke wellbeing plan will establish whether they require people to regularly check-in with them, will direct them to suitable social groups, classes and support groups they can join.

In addition, Rangeford Villages has links with local groups, clubs and voluntary organisations which will provide residents with an opportunity to maintain and extend their network beyond the village boundaries.

Environment

Help with domestic cleaning and home maintenance is available as frequently as the homeowners wishes.

Residents can also benefit from onsite care and support in the comfort of their own home. Customised care packages are available to help with daily tasks such as getting dressed, washing, preparing meals, housekeeping and even companionship.

The Wellbeing programme has been created with the assistance of Helena Field, a Health and Wellbeing Coach and Managing Director of Action Wellbeing.

Commenting on the new launch, Howard Nankivell, CEO at Rangeford Villages says: “Our mission has always been to create beautiful, contemporary communities with excellent services and amenities to help people aged 60+ enjoy life to the full.

“Wellbeing by Rangeford Villages, really encapsulates everything we stand for. The coronavirus pandemic has clearly demonstrated to us all the importance of looking after our health, and we think that the launch of our new Wellbeing service comes at a perfect time.

Rangeford Villages’ developments currently comprise Wadswick Green in Corsham, Wiltshire; Mickle Hill in North Pickering, Yorkshire; and Siddington Park in Cirencester.
