When you retire, you may find that you have a lot more free time than you had planned. Maybe you had planned on staying with the grandkids while their parents work but they have gotten too old to be babysat. Maybe you had decided your days would be filled with arts and crafts but have nobody else to share your passion with. This is where the retirement community in Springwells may be the place for you.

What to expect from a retirement community

We know that you have been busy for most of your life, and the vacuum of time can be disappointing. Who would have thought that working or raising children full time would leave a huge hole in your life when it stops? We know that you now have the time to do the things that you love. This is why we have a full range of activities and clubs that you can take advantage of. Not only can you enjoy the activities, but there are also day trips that can be taken with other residents and new friendships to be made. Being retired does not mean that you lose your independence and we fully support your need to explore and express yourself.

Why choose a retirement community?

There is a good chance that where you live has changed over the years and it isn’t the same place that it once was. Faces and attitudes change over time and the people who lived there may have moved on years ago. You might have enjoyed having a street full of kids 40 years ago, but now they are just noisy and disturbing your peace. As part of a retirement community, you will be surrounded by people your own age. Making social connections is a big part of life, and when you retire, you may miss out on these. As part of a community, you will find plenty of people that you can connect with, and plenty of new friendships can be made.

Changing needs

Once you have retired, you may discover that you are experiencing or noticing that you have new needs. Maybe your health isn’t what it used to be, or maybe you feel nervous in your home by yourself. As part of the village, we have a medical centre which can help you if you discover that your needs are different. Our skilled nursing team is at your disposal as a resident. There is also a 24 hours security team that patrols the campus so you never have to feel nervous about where you are. If you do feel uneasy, our staff are on hand to help you through any concerns or issues that you may have.
