My grandparents have got to an age where they are needing extra help but do not want to give up there independence, have recently been to visit a retirement village in coventry run by extracare, was really impressed how it seems to combine the social living with that of a private living space, anyone else have any experience of these type of retirement villages

    My 70’s brother went into a lovely Private rented warden assisted room. One double bedroom lounge and kitchen. He was frail but really enjoyed the reassurance of the room. He had pull assistance cords in each room which really made him feel safe.
    He enjoyed the privacy but joining the community life of dancing/bingo/music entertainments. Food too was available.
    He really enjoys it. In the North East the prices were the usual energy bills, and rent from £500 a month. Some rent includes water bills and TV licences.
    In addition my friends 87 year old mother has taken up residence in a similar building. She is very happy and she says she has a good social life.
    She is in Northumberland and pays £450 a month.
    In both, they have really pretty views from their windows. A close community network, reassurance of staff 24/7 when needed and can shut their door to their own privacy.
