Show Apartment Open Day

18th March 2017

Show Apartment Open Day

Richmond Aston-on-Trent, a new retirement village for Derbyshire which will be fully open later this year, are staging an open day on Saturday 18th March, 10am – 2pm, to launch their new 2-bedroom show apartment.

Richmond Aston-on-Trent, situated in rural South Derbyshire yet with easy access to junction 24 of the M1, promises to provide the ultimate in retirement living with facilities you would expect to find at a 5-star hotel.

“Richmond Aston-on-Trent is going to be a very special place to live and will be unlike any other retirement development in the area,” explained Alison Harding, the Senior Village Adviser at Richmond Aston-on-Trent.

“Our clients are downsizing from large 4 or 5 bedroom properties so they still want good living spaces but less bedrooms. All Richmond Village apartments have generous sized living spaces but just one or two en-suite bedrooms. The fully fitted kitchens boast granite work tops, Neff eye-level ovens and hob, and Bosch dishwasher and fridge freezer.”

The beautifully appointed apartments aren’t the only reason the retirement village has been so popular.  The on-site facilities situated in a Village Centre includes a restaurant, private dining, bar, café, residents lounge, library, activities room and shop.  As well as this the retirement village has its very own Wellness Spa which includes a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, steam room, gym, exercise studio, hair salon and beauty treatment rooms.  No wonder demand for properties at this luxurious development has been so high!

“It’s not just the well-designed apartments and fantastic facilities which have attracted our buyers,” continues Alison, “it’s also the on-site services which we offer.  Once fully operational we will have in the region of 150 people working here.  These include hospitality, housekeeping and reception and of course, the 24-hour on-site care team.  Our aim is to help improve our residents’ lives.  For example, we will have our very own drivers and small fleet of vehicles providing regular trips.  These can be anything from shopping trips, to trips to local places of interest.”

The retirement village will also ensure you have a full and varied social diary via their very own events and activities team.  They organise a wide range of events designed around the interests of the residents.  This can include anything from bridge clubs to summer festivals. 

Property prices range from £295,000 to £555,000.  Other charges do apply and further information of these as well as details of the open day can be obtained by speaking to the Village Advisers on 01332 895702.  For further information about Richmond Aston-on-Trent visit www.richmond-villages.com/aston

Everything’s blooming at Richmond Nantwich

Everything’s blooming at Richmond Nantwich

 

There was a lovely bright yellow surprise recently at Richmond Nantwich when Olwyn Payton from Sainsburys arrived at the Village with bunches and bunches of daffodils for the residents.

Sainsburys donate surplus flowers to local Care Homes and many local homes have benefitted over the past week with their kind gesture. Staff and residents at Richmond were delighted to receive them and set about arranging the flowers in vases for all to enjoy.

Village Manager Lynne Griffin remarked “The flowers are lovely and bright and have brought a real ray of sunshine” Senior Village Adviser Nicola Morgan-Parker added “We always appreciate the flowers from Sainsburys and it was handy having Gary Lawton from Maintenance around to help
give them out as there were such a lot!”

Richmond Witney featured in The Daily Express

Richmond Witney featured in The Daily Express

We were delighted to see Richmond Witney featured in an article in the Daily Express on Tuesday 21st March.  The full article by Deborah Stone is as follows:

Daily Express – Retirement Special - Independence Days

When Richmond Villages’ new retirement development in Oxfordshire held its Open Day last month around 750 people visited to see the facilities.  Richmond Witney has one and two-bedroom village apartments for those fit enough to enjoy independent living, plus a new care home for those with serious health problems.

There’s a third choice, too: assisted living suites.  But what exactly are they?

Susie Oakley, Operations Director at Richmond Villages, explains that they offer independent living but with a package of extra help for day-to-day chores.  “It’s an ideal combination of having your own front door with the reassurance that care and support is available on site 24 hours a day”.

“The Richmond Assisted Living package is designed to take away the chores of daily life, allowing people more time to enjoy the things they prefer doing. This means that we prepare all meals, which can be taken either in the restaurant or brought to their apartment, plus a daily housekeeping service and all laundry.  All utility costs are also included”.

Even more help can be arranged by the on-site domiciliary care team and tailored to meet the individual needs. 

“The advantage with this is that our staff only look after people living at the village so that those receiving care and support in their apartment generally see the same carers every day,” says Susie.  “Should care needs ever increase then there is also the reassurance of our on-site care home providing 24-hour nursing and dementia care”.


Richmond Villages has five other luxury retirement villages in Cheshire, Gloucester, Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and Warwickshire, with another under construction at Aston-on-Trent in Derbyshire.

“Although most people who live at these properties own their homes, there are a limited number of suites available to rent” says Susie.  Village Suites start from £235,000 at Witney and include a bedroom with en-suite shower room, sitting room and a fully-fitted kitchenette.

Activities at all Richmond Villages sites range from book clubs to the bridge or learning a new skill such as painting or using a computer but the four newest villages also have wellness spas.  These have a swimming pool, Jacuzzi and exercise classes.

“One of the most important things about life at Richmond Village is the social interaction with like-minded people” says Susie.  “Our Activity Co-ordinators ensure there is a full diary of activities, plus having our own vehicles and full-time drivers means there are scheduled daily trips to local towns as well as outings to places of interest”.

If you missed February’s Open Day you only have to telephone to arrange a private viewing or book a “try-before-you-buy”  short. break through the Richmond Retreats option.  As Susie says: “It’s a great way to see for yourself what life is like here”.
