To mark the occasion for World Wellbeing Week, ARCO (The Associated Retirement Community Operators) has launched a series of brand new videos that showcase just what a positive impact retirement communities like Audley have on the wellbeing of the people living and working there.
Each day this week there's a new video, featuring ARCO Members, including team members and owners at Audley retirement villages in Royal Leamington Spa, Malvern, London, Derbyshire and Buckinghamshire. Each video offers a unique take on how living or working in a retirement community has improved wellbeing.
The videos were filmed over Zoom during lockdown and ARCO would like to thank all Audley owners and team members who shared their experiences and made the making of these videos possible.
Please do share the videos on social media, and offer your own thoughts on how retirement communities positively impact on wellbeing. The official World Wellbeing Week handle is @wellbeing_week and the hashtag is #worldwellbeingweek

ARCO (The Associated Retirement Community Operators) is the main body representing the UK retirement community sector.
ARCO was formed in September 2012 by its founder members, including Nick Sanderson Audley Group CEO, and it continually strives to promote confidence in the sector, ensuring that all members are providing a high quality service to their residents.
ARCO believes that meaningful, long-lasting partnerships and commitments are at the heart of solving the challenge of meeting the housing, care, and support needs of our ageing population. We emphatically believe that older people should:
- Be treated with respect and dignity
- Be valued for their contributions to society and to their communities
- Have what they need to be happy and healthy, including access to good support, care, and health services
- Be enabled and supported to live independently for as long as possible
- Be empowered and free to make informed choices
