McCarthy & Stone helps over 70s enjoy a car free life

29 November 2013

McCarthy & Stone, the UK’s leading developer of retirement apartments, is assisting over 70s in Malvern, without a car, retain their independence by launching the Green Travel Plan, helping homeowners make the best use of local transport and delivery services in the area.

The developer has introduced the tailor made scheme at its development Cartwright Court, located on Victoria Road, and provides purchasers with detailed information about bus routes, public transport, door-to-door services and any other mobility schemes in the area.

Gill Sabin, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy & Stone, commented: “The plan is a great way to help homeowners who otherwise would be less able to get out and about. The scheme has been specifically personalised for the local area and not only includes traditional modes of transport such as buses and trains but also provides information about businesses, such as chemists and food shops, local to Cartwright Court which offer their own delivery services.

“At McCarthy & Stone everything we do is designed to help our purchasers retain independence in later life and we hope the Green Travel Plan goes some way to supporting that, as well as benefitting the environment.”

McCarthy & Stone is currently selling one and two bedroom Assisted Living apartments exclusively for the over 70s at Cartwright Court.

In addition to stylish, low maintenance properties, Cartwright Court benefits from communal facilities, including a table service restaurant and communal lounge, plus personal care, domestic assistance and other support services all in a safe and secure environment that offers peace of mind and continued independence in a property they continue to own.

Staff are on site 24 hours a day and can be called in an instant courtesy of the 24 hour emergency call system.  Importantly for both purchasers and their family, Assisted Living offers the reassurance and peace of mind that their loved ones are in good hands. All properties are low maintenance and energy efficient.

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