What is a Richmond Village?

A Richmond Village is an exclusive retirement community offering retirement properties plus a care home at each location. To be a resident you must be 55 years (young at heart) and over. You have a choice to purchase an apartment or suite and some of Villages have Wellness Spas and offer Richmond Retreat holidays.

What is a ‘Village Apartment’

One and two bedroomed retirement apartments are Richmond Villages’ answer to ‘independent living’. These are a straightforward downsizing option when you feel a larger house and garden may have got too much and you want to retire to a like-minded community where you feel safe and secure with facilities onsite should your circumstances change.

What is a Village Suite and how are they different from Apartments?

Village suites feature a stylish en-suite wetroom lounge and kitchenette with space to fit a fridge, toaster, kettle and microwave so you can make snacks and hot drinks. The main difference to an apartment is the offering of an inclusive Lifestyle Package which takes care of cleaning, laundry, utility bills and meals. For an additional fee we can also arrange in-home care at the level you require. Suites are within the main Village complex making it easy for you to get around. This is premium ‘assisted living’ for a worry and stress free lifestyle.

Do you have care homes?

Yes, we have a Village care home at each of our locations. Village care homes are bright and beautifully presented. Residents have a private en suite bedroom with modern profiling bed and space to move in favourite possessions and furniture. Lounges, dining areas and activity rooms provide areas for socialising with friends, family and other residents. Care provision varies at each location but within the Richmond Villages’ network we offer residential, nursing and dementia support.

What if I buy a property and my health changes?

Whether you live in an apartment or suite we have a dedicated in-home (domiciliary) care team who can provide as much care and support as you need. This can be offered on a short or long term basis to recover from an operation, illness or more significant changes in your overall health.

Can we move in as a couple?

Absolutely. One of our main aims in creating Richmond Villages is to keep loved ones together in a community. We can answer many different health needs without you having to move multiple times or live apart. The range of services and facilities ‘under one roof’ is what makes Richmond Villages unique.

What’s it like at a Richmond Village?

Always fancied owning your own swimming pool or having a top-class restaurant serving delicious meals just a stone’s throw away? Enjoy a glass of fizz on your private terrace before an exclusive music performance gets underway. Pop down to the gym for a quick Pilates class before a pampering beauty therapy. At Richmond Villages you can enjoy it all, it’s about living a holiday-style high life – full of indulgence and happiness – that doesn’t have to end!
