Elisabeth will be responsible for all operations and management of the retirement village, and commenting on her appointment, said: “I am very excited to be working for such a prestigious company, and hope that my skills and experience will help put Richmond Letcombe Regis on the map as a highly successful community that offers something for everyone.”
Said Paddy Brice, managing director of Richmond Villages: “We welcome Lis to this exciting new development, and are confident she can assemble a great team of care professionals to deliver the quality of service expected at a Richmond Village.”
The purpose built, award winning¹ retirement community, which features stunning landscaped outdoor spaces, including a lake and a nature reserve, offers a wonderful environment and lifestyle with plenty of social opportunities for the over 55s. Its outstanding facilities include a lakeside restaurant, café, IT room and library, craft rooms, a bowling green, and state-of-the-art wellness spa with a swimming pool.
The village provides a range of deluxe apartments to suit all. The Village Apartments offer a more independent way of living and are priced from £295,000.

Residents can benefit from tailored care packages provided by Richmond’s on site domiciliary care team, and hotel-style services including food, beverages, daily maid service and laundry.
A care home will also be located at the heart of the village providing 24-hour nursing care, within which there will also be a Memory Lane Community, catering for those with a dementia.
