Retirement Living – It’s Not What You Think

Many people shudder at the thought of retirement living, with common misconceptions including confusing the latter with care homes and a lack of independence. They’re small, stuffy and full of old, single women, right? In actual fact, the reality couldn’t be further from the truth. 

Just a fifteen minute walk from Windsor town centre is Castle View, an independent retirement village for those aged over 55. The apartments are swanky, and are set over three floors with quality and comfort in mind. With a host of communal areas, a sky lounge, ample space and parking spaces available, why wouldn’t anyone want to live here? The facilities are similar to that of a hotel, yet the negative connotations around retirement living still occur.

The one common problem that those considering relocating to a retirement living have is that they will lose their independence. It’s important to remember that a retirement community is not a care home but more so a like-minded community that offers a little extra support for those over 55, such as 24 hour reception cover. John and Margaret, who have both been residents of Castle View Windsor for the past two years, say that their health has improved since their decision to move. 

Enthusiastic foodies will be overjoyed to learn of the restaurant, bar and cafe facilities on site at Castle View. On site catering managers provide an extensive and fresh menu, serving up anything from fresh roast dinners to fish and chips, whilst Colin the barman is always willing and ready to serve up residents’ favourite tipples. Be sure to invite your friends round to marvel at the culinary delights!

As well as the sky lounge, restaurants and state of the art facilities, a library is also available on site for those looking for a place to work, read or even just contemplate life. Castle View Windsor is home to a community of like-minded individuals, and whilst every aspect of the living space is maintained to a high standard by staff, residents can sit back and relax whilst enjoying the benefits of socialising with fellow residents and friends. 

For those who need a little extra assistance to enjoy life comfortably, assisted living packages are available to individuals who need it. A range of services are available, including meals, housekeeping, laundry and domiciliary assistance, all of which will be specifically tailored to meet the needs of the individual. 

From help with packing and removals, to interior designers, Castle View can be tailored directly to residents needs. The village is made up of a team of friendly, caring and helpful individuals who are more than happy to help assist residents from the beginning of their journey of moving to Castle View and provide the best possible care so residents can enjoy their new space and life.
