McCarthy & Stone - Information day for Chipping Ongar retirement development

The UK’s leading retirement developer, McCarthy & Stone, is holding a special information day to offer anyone over the age of 70 the opportunity to find out more about Weighbridge Court, its forthcoming Assisted Living development in Chipping Ongar.

With construction already well underway at the site on High Street, McCarthy & Stone is inviting interested parties to attend an event taking place on Friday 25th January in the Mulberry Suite at the Mulberry House Hotel on Chelmsford Road in Ongar.

Between 11am and 3pm, visitors will be able to hear all about the plans for the new development ahead of its completion, as well as finding out all about the many benefits of Assisted Living and speak to a dedicated team of professional advisors about the properties and lifestyle on offer.

Interested parties can also discover more about McCarthy & Stone’s Moving Experience package, where purchasers can have the cost of estate agent and solicitors’ fees covered by the retirement developer. And, in order to help with the day of the move, a free de-cluttering and removals service can be arranged. 

Julie Ward, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy & Stone, explained: “We understand that the decision to move in later life can be a difficult one, not only for purchasers themselves, but also for their families. At McCarthy & Stone, we aim to make the buying process as smooth and stress-free as possible.

“By attending our event at the Mulberry House Hotel, visitors will be able to meet with our advisors and discuss the options available to help make moving a reality. It will also provide a great opportunity for guests to take a look at what life at Weighbridge Court could be like, and we urge anyone interested to pop along and see us on the day.”

When complete, Weighbridge Court will provide a selection of 60 one and two bedroom purpose-built Assisted Living apartments exclusively for people aged 70. 

Its Assisted Living developments offer the independence of retaining home ownership while living in an apartment specifically designed for the over 70s. In addition, they offer a helping hand through flexible care and support packages, including domestic assistance, that make life that little bit easier.

Facilities include a shared lounge, guest suite, laundry room and a restaurant, offering hot meals 365 days a year. A dedicated estate manager ensures the smooth running of the development and a security entrance system plus 24-hour emergency call points provide peace of mind for both residents and their families. All properties are low maintenance and energy efficient.

In addition to offering age exclusive apartments, the retirement developer also provides a range of financial services, including a pension annuity service, equity release, legal services and guaranteed funeral plans.
