Retirement living is often presented as a choice between continuing to live in your own home or in some form of residential care home. That’s not quite the way we see it. Our philosophy is that the accommodation should be very much your home – which is why our luxury care home Steepleton Manor provides assisted living, rather than just residential care. The accommodation and support should be set up to help you live life the way you want to.
The picture you have of care home accommodation might not include an apartment with French windows opening onto a patio area which leads to quiet landscaped gardens. Some bedrooms on the ground floor are centered around a glass-roofed Mediterranean Style courtyard and indoor garden. Planted with subtropical shrubs and trees, the courtyard is a relaxing and is a great place to enjoy a morning coffee or afternoon tea and to socialise with friends.
We have recently carried out a major refurbishment of the assisted living accommodation at Steepleton Manor. The original staff quarters on the top floor has been completely remodelled to create self-contained suites, some complete with its own separate lounge area, kitchenette and en-suite bathroom overlooking the gardens. These suites are ideal for those who want to live independently with the comfort that help is available if required. With its original beams, eave windows and high ceilings, you will truly feel a sense of airiness and space, which is further enhanced with specialist lighting that replicates daylight to provide a comfortable, calming environment.
Fitting in with the theme of ‘it’s your home’, residents are encouraged to personalise their accommodation and decorate with items from home according to their taste. We want everyone to feel they are at home and in familiar surroundings.
All rooms and apartments are designed to offer a luxurious sense of manor living, but in your own style and reflecting the way you want to live. They are equipped, furnished and decorated to a high standard and include television, telephone, and Wi-Fi.
The best way to discover whether this is a style of retirement living that would suit you is to come and see for yourself. We’d be happy to show you around. Contact us today on 01305 206 140.
