It is believed that spending time with other people adds to your happiness and sense of wellbeing.
In times gone by, everyone knew who their neighbours were and this made communities stronger and more secure. That's why Churchill Retirement Living has designed retirement lodges to help you connect with the people around you and get to know your neighbours.
Living in a retirement village gives the option to socialise as much or as little as you like. The retirement developments tend to attract like-minded people, so you’ll find it easy to fit in and make friends.
Regular events help you mingle, get out of your private apartment, and be active.
"It's really been an enormous relief and the people here are lovely"
- Ruth, owner in Drayton
From garden parties to musical events, Churchill design events and activities with traditional British values in mind. It's all designed to help you get the most out of life.
When you're living in a retirement apartment built by Churchill, you'll also find shops and other amenities close by. This means you'll find it easy to do the things that are important to you, and have everything on your doorstop.
Your retirement deserves to be happy, relaxed and sociable. Live life to the fullest, whatever your age, by enjoying the benefits of living in a retirement community.
The social life
Retirement should give you more time for the things that interest you. That's why Churchill’s Lodge Managers create a varied programme of events enabling you to do the things you love.
You can enjoy fashion shows and wine tastings without leaving the Lodge, or attend a garden party in the beautiful landscaped gardens. Glide across the floor at one of our tea dances, or attend a musical event with songs you'll remember from the good old days!
Living in a retirement community gives you lots of opportunity to socialise with your neighbours, or enjoy the privacy of your own apartment. Whether you're a couple or on your own, you'll find it easy to make new friends with other people. Churchill organise regular coffee mornings and afternoon teas in the elegant Owners' Lounges, so you can get to know your neighbours.
If you're on your own, living in a Churchill lodge brings you into regular contact with people so you never feel isolated. Retirement should be a happy and fulfilling time for everyone. Living in a retirement property is one way to ensure you get the best out of this period in your life.
