“The people here are so friendly and there’s so much to do!”
“We had been on holiday to an adapted Lodge at Center Parks and found living on one floor with wide doorways and a large wet room so much easier. We also enjoyed the forest setting, with the swimming pool and restaurants on-hand and we wondered if we could find somewhere similar to live permanently. Fortunately our daughter-in-law found Lynwood Village online and once we had been to visit, and seen this lovely flat, we immediately put our house on the market.
“We also value the security and facilities here as we age, as do our sons, as they feel we are in a very secure and uplifting environment. We did look at retirement flats, but they did not appeal at all!
“After nearly nine months we are still so happy to be here. We arrived in snow in January and with the help of the “unpackers” we settled in very quickly. The people here are so friendly and there’s so much to do. Of course the purpose built flat, with the wet rooms and the wide doorways, is ideal for my husband in his wheelchair and he can access the café and the restaurant, as well as the physio and aquatherapy, all within the building! We now enjoy the smell of cut grass from our balcony – no garden for us to worry about!
“We are grateful to our daughter-in-law for finding Lynwood for us, and to our family for encouraging us to make the move now – while we are young enough to make the most of it for many years to come. Our family are equally grateful that we are in such a safe environment, and a bonus for them is that they don’t even have to change a lightbulb, as there are people here available to do that. And the friends and family we left behind enjoy coming up on a Sunday and having lunch with us in the restaurant – no need for me to cook!”
