What do our residents think?
Before moving into his flat at Wexford House, former NATO briefing team member Roger was living alone in the Lake District. Being a widower, and living seven miles from essential amenities, Roger realised that the future could be very challenging unless he moved into a ready-made community.
“Although I was still able to drive and was enjoying very good health, I knew I had to look ahead and plan for my future. I wasn’t getting any younger!
“I arranged a taster visit to Wexford House, and loved every minute. The atmosphere was incredibly warm and friendly, and I saw that my life would be transformed if I made the move. I went home and set the wheels in motion, and I haven’t looked back!”
Former Bomber Command telephonist Margaret found it difficult to say goodbye to her old bungalow, but quickly realised that moving into one of our retirement complexes was the best move she could make.
“Looking back, I certainly made the right decision. My husband had died, and I would have been terribly lonely if I’d stayed in Wales.”
“I now love having my own space while having opportunities to sit and chat with the other residents in our lovely lounge and conservatory. I have my own telephone in my flat, so I’m able to keep in touch with people I know in Wales.”
“Independence is very important to me, so I value being able to do my own laundry, and popping out to the shops when I want to.”
