Terry Waite CBE Opens State-of-the-Art Care Home at New Retirement Village in Oxfordshire

Humanitarian Terry Waite CBE has today opened a state-of-the-art care home at Richmond Letcombe Regis, a stunning £60 million retirement village near Wantage, Oxfordshire.

The new retirement village, built and operated by Richmond Villages, part of the Barchester Healthcare Group, is the only development of its type in Oxfordshire; offering outstanding levels of care, services and facilities for people over 55.

Terry Waite says: “Richmond Letcombe Regis is an impressive retirement village that provides quality of life and high standards of care for those who need it. I believe life should be cherished, whatever your age or state of health, and am very encouraged to see that Richmond Villages holds true to this philosophy.”

The home provides 24-hour long and short-stay care, rehabilitation, post-operative and palliative care as well as specialist dementia care within a dedicated Memory Lane community.  

The 51-bedded care home boasts beautifully decorated furnished rooms with exceptional features including a fully profiling bed and an easily accessible en suite with a wet room shower facility. 

Other facilities available to all residents include a wellness spa with a swimming pool, gym, health and beauty treatment rooms and a hair salon.  There is a restaurant, an IT and crafts room, library and a bowling green. 

Paddy Brice, managing director of Richmond Villages, says: “We are very proud of our luxurious care home at Richmond Letcombe Regis, where we will be encouraging both a sense of community and personal independence”

The retirement village also has 34 independent living apartments, for those who can live independently, but who like the idea of being in a safe and sociable community where care and assistance is available if needed, and 23 assisted living apartments for those who still want their own front door but who require some help with day-to-day living.
