Maidenhead Retirees Enjoy an Afternoon of Cocktails in the Garden

19 September 2019

Homeowners and staff at McCarthy and Stone’s Swift House Retirement Living Plus development on St Luke’s Road in Maidenhead recently opened their doors to local retirees for live jazz music and cocktails.

Guests who attended the special event enjoyed a fantastic afternoon sipping cocktails in the landscaped gardens, while also enjoying live entertainment provided by MPR Jazz.

As well as basking in the sunshine, guests were able to take a closer look at Swift House. The event provided the opportunity to take a tour of the show complex, meet the McCarthy and Stone team, and chat with retirees who are already living at the development.

Julie Ward, National Sales Director for McCarthy and Stone, said: “Our garden party event was a great success. Everyone enjoyed learning more about the cocktails which were served, and MPR Jazz put on a fantastic performance for our homeowners and guests. 

“The event was a good chance for us to showcase the wide variety of activities we host here at Swift House, and to provide people with an insight into the lives homeowners enjoy at the development.”

Swift House features a high-quality table-service restaurant providing fresh cooked meals daily, a spacious and contemporary homeowners’ lounge, beautiful landscaped gardens, and a convenient guest suite for when friends and family come to visit. 

An Estates Manager is on hand to take care of the smooth-running of the development; while security entrance systems and 24-hour emergency call points provide added reassurance for homeowners and their families. 

Bridging the gap between conventional Retirement Living and residential care, Retirement Living Plus enables older people to retain independence in the form of home ownership, yet still have the peace-of-mind of a range of additional security and support services. Bespoke personal packages are available for retirees who need extra support – from help with laundry or cleaning, to round the clock personal care to suit their individual needs.

Situated close to the heart of Maidenhead, Swift House has a number of local amenities nearby, including The Nicholsons Shopping Centre, a library, and large selection of restaurants and cafes. Maidenhead also offers easy access to Reading and the west, as well as London Paddington, Marlow and Windsor.
