The Cottons, ideally located just a few minutes’ walk from the vibrant historic market town, welcomed its first homeowners in March 2020 and is the tenth Adlington Retirement Living community to sell-out.

Alexandra Johnson, Sales and Marketing Director for Adlington Retirement Living, said: “We’re really pleased to have welcomed homeowners to all 57 of our apartments at The Cottons now. There’s a real sense of community there and it’s wonderful to see so many homeowners enjoying their retirement.”

The 24-hour on-site support teams provide homeowners with peace of mind and help with the little things, as well as the big, providing a consistent, outstanding service for homeowners.

John and Marcia had lived in their family home for 57 years before moving into The Cottons in March 2020: “We’re very happy here. We have these beautiful gardens to walk around and to admire and it’s been a big relief not having to worry about doing jobs. We’ve had one or two things that needed doing and we have a very good handyman here and we get a lot of help.”

Dr Ed Gladman, CEO of Adlington Retirement Living, believes The Cottons is a wonderful example of a new blueprint for retirement living: “Adlington’s vision is to empower our older generation to live a long, happy and healthy life. We do that by creating safe and secure environments with active communities, extensive facilities, and spacious, quality homes.

“Moving to a retirement living community offers an opportunity for our homeowners to remain independent with the reassurance of support, right on their doorstep. They don’t have to worry about the maintenance and upkeep of a house, so they can spend more time socialising and doing the things they love.”

Margaret, who is a homeowner and a member of the gardening club at The Cottons, said: “I have always enjoyed gardening, but my previous garden became too much for me. Now I have a small plot on the raised beds which I can manage easily. This gives me an interest, some exercise and gets me outside meeting other like-minded people.”

Talks and special events are regularly delivered with guest speakers, authors and performers. Last year homeowners at The Cottons welcomed a local author to share the fascinating true story of two Second World War Spitfire pilots. Cliff, a homeowner who attended the event, said: “It was wonderful to hear John’s talk and the amazing story of those young pilots. It really brought history to life. We had a super afternoon sharing anecdotes and asking questions.”

Through its partnerships with local CQC qualified care providers, every community also offers consistently high standards of tailored personal care packages to homeowners in need of assistance. Care provision is completely flexible, allowing the team to arrange short-term support for post-operative care or after an illness, or more long-term assisted living.
