"In the summer we had an Elvis night. We had flashing lights going, everyone was up dancing! It got hot so we all went out to the patio and people were walking past looking in saying what are those old people doing in there!"
"I've thought about this and there's only one word to us that describes this place and that's "Utopia", It's absolutely fantastic!"
"There's always plenty of people about even if you're just going shopping."
"We're much happier. Well I am, yes! I mean I did have some doubts, what am I going to do, you know, stuck in a two-bedroom apartment all day long with nothing to do. Now I am working out when am I going to get a break!"
"Everything was in lockdown at the time, the schools were shut, no one was going out and I didn’t really feel like it made the move any more difficult. McCarthy Stone’s […] approach is sensible, straightforward and cautious."
"The Smooth Move service was so good, all we had to do was walk out the house, they did everything…I was delighted with the move. I’d recommend it to everyone. Everyone here is so happy. The apartment is so light and spacious with its two bedrooms and it’s three minutes from Lichfield town centre. My daughter’s mother in law came to look around my apartment and now she wants one! … There are no downsides, I can’t quite believe I’m here. I love it."
"This might sound stupid to you but I think this will lengthen my life because where I was lonesome sometimes, I feel happy inside since I've been with McCarthy Stone."
"It was a bit of a shock when Ted said I think we should move. He'd done all the research without me knowing, before dropping the bomb shell!"
