Information Day for Ipswich Assisted Living Development

07 March 2013

The UK’s leading retirement property developer, McCarthy & Stone, is holding a special information day to offer people over the age of 70 and their families, the opportunity to find out more about its forthcoming Assisted Living development, Booth Court in Ipswich.

With construction already well underway at the site on Handforth Road, McCarthy & Stone is inviting interested parties to attend an event on Tuesday 12 March at The Cameo Hotel on Old London Road in Copdock.

At 11am and 2pm, visitors will be able to hear all about the plans for the new development ahead of its completion in June, find out 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 find out about McCarthy & Stone’s Moving Experience package, where the purchaser 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 removal service can be arranged, which includes packing and unpacking belongings. 

Gill Sabin, 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 Cameo Hotel, visitors will be able to meet with our advisors and discuss the options available to help making moving a reality. It will also provide a great opportunity for guests to take a look at what life at Ipswich could be like, and we urge anyone interested to pop along and see us on the day.”

Each of the 59 properties at Booth Court will be fully wheelchair accessible throughout and will offer a secure and low maintenance living environment.

All will come complete with a light and airy open plan lounge and dining room, adjoining a well appointed kitchen comprising modern fitted units, a built in oven and hob plus a fridge freezer.  There will also be electrically operated windows for ease of use.

Resident’s will also be able to benefit from a shared lounge, maintained landscaped gardens and enjoy a hot meal 365 days of the year at the development’s waitress service restaurant.  And, as well as the neighbourly company of other like-minded people, staff will be on site 24 hours a day to keep an eye on things and help when needed.
