'I couldn't believe how easy it all turned out to be'

Maureen Ridgeway court in Heathfield

As if moving into my beautiful new apartment wasn’t enough, everything that led up to the move was handled by McCarthy and Stone. I couldn’t believe how easy it all turned out to be; I was left with just two boxes to unpack which suited me and Meira just fine.

'I didn't have to lift a finger'

The standard of customer service and support that I received from the sales team at the development was excellent and made the whole experience feel effortless. I was even able to use McCarthy and Stone’s ‘House to Home’ service, where the removal team helped me to move my belongings into my new apartment – I didn’t have to lift a finger

'There is always someone to talk to'

Maureen Ridgeway court in Heathfield

A Retirement Living development really works for us. It is a very sociable place and we really enjoy the active social life. We have regular coffee mornings and film nights, and there is always someone to talk to. However, having your own apartment means that, if you prefer your own company, there is complete privacy in your home.

'Living at Clifton Mews gives me a lovely balance of privacy as well as support when I need it'

clifton court - mccarthy & stone - mrs weir - testimonial - reviews -

Making the decision to move to McCarthy and Stone’s Retirement Living development in Portobello has offered 84 year old Mrs Hope Weir a new lease of life since she moved into Clifton Mews.

When I fell last year and fractured a vertebrae in my back having just recovered from a knee operation, I was very reliant on everyone popping in to look after me and I know my family were worried about me being on my own in such a large house.

Living at Clifton Mews gives me a lovely balance of privacy as well as support when I need it, plus I’ve made lots of new friends because it’s just so friendly here!

My move has more than given me a new lease of life, I’m re-discovering my confidence. Now that I’m on the road to a full recovery from my various accidents, I’ve managed to stop my reliance on a wheelchair so that’s a real boost too.

I don’t miss my old house at all – the garden was too much of a burden and I had three bedrooms and two living rooms to contend with so the property was just too big for me to cope with. In fact there were rooms that I just didn’t use any longer. And when it came to de-cluttering and moving, the team from McCarthy and Stone took care of everything and they were very helpful – as was my grandson who helped to unpack a few boxes and made sure I felt right at home on day one.
I love the space that I’ve got in my new lounge and I’ve got my own patio if I want to enjoy some fresh air, or I can meet up with my new friends and sit in the resident’s rose garden to catch-up on what’s going on – it really is such a lovely place to be.
