Why Move to a Retirement Community?

People used to feel that their options narrowed in later life. Growing older meant downsizing from a much-loved family home to something smaller with little or no facilities. Today, with more people living longer than ever before, there’s a brighter alternative.

Moving to a retirement village opens up new prospects and broadens your horizons. It allows you to enjoy a modern, independent lifestyle without the burden of maintaining your house and garden, together with the reassurance of staff on-site 24-hours a day.

Emerson Park, which opens in spring 2018, demonstrates how retirement communities in the UK have now caught up with those on offer in America, where they have been around for far longer. Situated on Rowhill Road in Hextable, its enviable location combines the peace and tranquillity of a traditional English village with easy access to the bright city lights – central London is just a 36-minute train journey away. This, coupled with its proximity to the M20 and M25, makes it easy for friends and family members to visit.

Retirement villages are specifically designed to keep residents healthy, active and social. Emerson Park offers a range of five-star facilities including a state-of-the-art exercise studio and gym, hair and beauty salon, and a purpose-built cinema room. There is a feast of dining choices from a healthy snack in the café/bar to 3-course dining in the elegant ambience of the Club Room restaurant.
