Forward Thinking Malvern Residents Enjoying Later Life
24 September 2014
Dr Barber and Ms Scholes are benefiting from their move to our development Cartwright Court so they can relax and enjoy their retirement without the worry and stress of maintaining a large property and garden. The couple made a conscious decision to plan ahead with their living arrangements in later life to ensure they were not rushed in to making a quick decision if something went wrong.
“We attended a number of open days to explore the possibilities of Assisted Living with McCarthy & Stone. The Estates Manager at Cartwright Court was exceedingly helpful, making sure of the smooth transition from our old home. It is great to know that someone is on hand 24/7 to help out if there is a problem – it is really reassuring. We really are delighted,” Ms Scholes said.
Living at Cartwright Court has enabled them both to maintain an active lifestyle and see their family and friends on a regular basis. “We enjoy having our friends over for afternoon tea or for a meal at lunchtime at the on-site restaurant. We don’t have to do a thing, including the washing up!” said Ms Scholes.
“It’s even better with a bottle of wine on the table,” Dr Barber added.
Assisted Living also offers accommodation to visiting guests, enabling homeowners to still have the capacity to entertain and spend time with loved ones.
Dr Barber explained: “Visitors can stay in our Guest Room overnight. Entertaining is now very easy and we’re delighted with that”.
They also explained the benefits of being located in the heart of the Worcester countryside, surrounded by stunning views of the Malvern Hills.
“It is a spectacular establishment,” said Dr Barber. “Malvern is a lovely place, with a cinema, theatre, park and restaurants all nearby – everything we could possibly want. It really is a beautiful and wonderful place to live,” said Ms Scholes.
Cartwright Court, situated on Victoria Road in Malvern, comprises of 54 one and two bedroom apartments designed to promote independent living with the peace of mind of additional support and assistance when you need it.
All properties at Cartwright Court are fully wheelchair accessible throughout. The development also benefits from a table-service restaurant offering a two course hot meal 365 days of the year, an hour of domestic assistance each week and personal care from the on-site care team, should the need arise.
