Brooklands House, Stafford celebrates opening
The Mayor and Mayoress of Stafford Borough, Councillor Mr Ray Barron...
With recent research revealing that over 80,000 people aged 60 and over across Yorkshire and the Humber struggle with loneliness, the team at Adlington House in Otley, an £11m luxury retirement development, is urging people to consider making 2017 the year they get a new lease of life. The site, based on Bridge Street, is down to its last three serviced apartments, offering mature homeowners independent living with 24-hour on-site care and support, if needed.
Adlington House offers an independent yet sociable way of life. The table-service restaurant offering breakfast and a three-course lunch daily, hairdressing salon, lounge, and activities and crafts room, all add to the much desired social life. Privacy and companionship are available in equal measure, how much of each you choose is entirely up to you.
Age UK has also highlighted the growing number of older people who are chronically lonely across the country. A staggering half a million people over 60 spend each day alone, with nearly half a million more going for five or six days at a time without speaking to anyone.
Mr Tindall, resident at Adlington House: “When I first visited the development I felt the ambience right away. I am very fortunate to have made the move to Adlington House, I have only been here for a short time but I already feel more confident in myself, I have my life back. I can now keep my independence but also have the option to have support if I need it.”
Phil Holyoak, Sales Manager at Adlington House in Otley, said: “It is concerning to hear statistics that highlight the growing problem of chronic loneliness and social exclusion across Yorkshire and the rest of the UK. Here at Adlington, we really do offer luxury independent living, and also a place where homeowners have the chance to socialise with other people in the restaurant and living areas, as well as getting involved in activities and crafts, allowing them to feel part of a friendly community. Our Otley development has been our most successful to date and our buyers have confirmed that the sociable community here was a key factor in helping them to make their purchase.”
There are one and two bedroom apartments remaining for purchase which include spacious living and dining areas, as well as fully-fitted modern kitchens.
Phil added: “We also have a 24-hour on-site care and support option provided by our partner MHA (Methodist Homes), which is key to many of our homeowners. The trusted charity organisation has been providing care and support for more than 70 years across the UK and will be on hand to support any residents if and when they might need a little extra help. With just three apartments now remaining, we would urge those who are looking for an easier way of life to get in touch and come and see us soon.”
Security is of paramount importance at Adlington and an emergency call system and security video entry comes as standard in all apartments. Adlington also offer a generous referral reward of £1,000 for any recommendations that lead to a purchase.
