A supportive environment
Having the presence of management on-site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year can be very reassuring. Our trained staff are there to provide you with the day to day support that makes life that bit easier.
One hour’s domestic assistance per week is included in your weekly apartment service charge*. So, for many of our homeowners, they use this hour to have their apartment cleaned.
Other tasks, which you can choose to be carried out by our services team as part of your domestic assistance allowance, include:
- General tidying
- Changing bedding
- Managing heating systems
- Helping to look after pets**
- Shopping for food
- Posting letters or parcels
*Varies per development
**Does not include exercising pets
Freshly prepared meals every day in the restaurant
Each apartment has its own kitchen, but you can also have a reasonable priced*, healthy, three-course lunch at the on-site table service or bistro style restaurant**. So, you can always enjoy wonderful food without the bother of shopping, cooking or washing up.
Special dietary requirements can be catered for and friends and family are welcome to join you***.
A cuppa or maybe some supper
You’ll always be able to find coffee and tea in the homeowners’ lounge should you fancy a chat with your neighbours. At a modest cost, we can also put together a plated cold sandwich, salad or quiche supper for you to take back to your apartment. Arrangements can also be made to bring your meal to your apartment in the event of illness.
The perfect place to celebrate
For those special occasions, a function room is available for you and your guests and you can work with the on-site catering staff to select a menu for your guests that works with your budget. You are also welcome to bring along your own alcoholic beverages.
* Average charge of £4 per meal.
**Catering services vary per development
***Meals for guests and special events can cost more.
Socialising with new friends
We find that our homeowners enjoy socialising together – and your Estates Management Team is on hand to help facilitate any social events and activities that you choose to be part of. You’ll find there are a range of activities from book clubs to film nights and day trips, regularly taking place.
Events include our newly launched evening meals with entertainment, the first of which is ‘surf and turf’. Residents, along with their friends and families, are able to enjoy the delights of freshly prepared prawn cocktails followed by Sirloin Steaks and Black Forest Gateaux for dessert, with live entertainment in the lounge.
You can invite your friends and family to dine with you at the development, participate in all the social events and celebrate those special birthday and anniversary occasions with you throughout the year.*
Each development is different and the entertainments on offer reflect the interests of our homeowners, but there’s always something going on that you can choose to join in if you want to.
