Mr and Mrs Garnett

"We want for nothing in our comfortable and secure home"

Audley teams across our villages are doing everything they can to support those living with us. With the current uncertainty around the length of self-isolation for over 70s, it is more important than ever to make sure our Audley owners feel safe, comfortable and reachable. How lovely then, for our Jo at Audley Binswood to receive this video from Mr Garnett.

"We feel blessed, so much so that we really must talk about it to someone..."

"What a wonderful thing it is to live here, with the comfort, security and quality of service that is available to us every day."

Mr and Mrs Garnett found everything they were looking for when they moved from their family home six years ago, to Audley Binswood, just minutes from the centre of Royal Leamington Spa. Having always considered moving to an Audley village the best decision they made in later life, that sentiment is evermore prevalent during this pandemic. Despite social distancing regulations and the advice not to leave your home for an unprecedented amount of time, Claire and Alan Garnett have so far found themselves both well looked after and entertained by their neighbours and village staff.

“This crisis gives Claire and I even more time to reflect upon the good fortune that brought us to Binswood six years ago.”

“We feel truly blessed with the sincerity and warmth of all the staff, dedicated as they are, to our comfort and well-being. What a superb concept is the ‘Audley luxury retirement proposal’. We want for nothing in our comfortable and secure home and luxuriate in the - meals brought our door- service that will see us through this wretched pandemic.”

Mr Garnett's experience is echoed across our retirement villages. During these unsettling times, stories like this one give us all hope that that we can pull together and stay connected.

Thank you Mr and Mrs Garnett for your kind words and thank you to our dedicated teams at Audley Binswood and villages across the country. Every small action is a helping hand towards someone's wellbeing. #audleyvillages #togetherathome

Audley teams are running events and activities in our outdoor spaces and using technology to keep our owners engaged and feeling together at home. Read more about the new initiatives happening across our retirement villages.

We have created a series of How To guides to help people stay connected and get set up with videocalling and apps.
