What are retirement villages?
Retirement villages (also known as Integrated Retirement Communities) offer independence with flexibility for people aged 55 or older, whether they’re completely self-sufficient or in need of support.
Typically, retirement villages provide a variety of self-contained homes which may be rented or bought on a leasehold basis.
A wide range of facilities, plus flexible care options, are all set within a village-style neighbourhood. You get to choose the lifestyle, amount of community involvement and level of help you want. You get peace of mind, too – extra care is readily available close by, should you need more support in the future.
The best retirement villages in the UK are designed to feel like real local communities. Many are built around a central building with facilities including a restaurant, bistro, bar, spa, swimming pool and more.
