Devel­op­ment’s help­ing hand

Northants Evening Telegraph - Property - - NEWS -

when Mar­garet He­witt found walk­ing to her lo­cal shops and cook­ing for her­self a strug­gle, she knew where to turn – McCarthy & Stone’s Townsend Court devel­op­ment in Rush­den, which of­fers As­sisted Liv­ing.

Hav­ing lived at a McCarthy & Stone Re­tire­ment Liv­ing devel­op­ment for the past five and a half years, mar­garet knew she’d be happy at Townsend Court, which bridges the gap be­tween con­ven­tional re­tire­ment de­vel­op­ments and res­i­den­tial care.

Mar­garet, 88, said: “while I very much en­joyed liv­ing at Forge Court, I was tired of cook­ing for my­self and needed more help with day-to-day tasks.

“Mov­ing to an­other McCarthy & Stone devel­op­ment was the log­i­cal so­lu­tion as I knew what to ex­pect.

“It is a great com­fort to have so many peo­ple around to help me as I get older and to be nearer to my daugh­ter, Va­lerie, and the fam­ily. It is also won­der­ful to have com­pany over lunch and, of course, not to have to do the wash­ing up!”

Her daugh­ter, Va­lerie Gar­lick, also has peace of mind, as she ex­plained: “when she saw an ad­vert for Townsend Court, we de­cided to go and have a look at what was avail­able.

“We were re­ally im­pressed with the whole set up and mum was thrilled that she would be able to move to an­other McCarthy & Stone devel­op­ment, as the ser­vice she had re­ceived was bril­liant.

“Not only would mum be able to main­tain own­er­ship of a prop­erty and her in­de­pen­dence – two things that were very im­por­tant to her – she would also be able to ben­e­fit from a num­ber of ad­di­tional sup­port ser­vices and fea­tures, should she re­quire them.”

Ser­vices of­fered in­clude 24-hour emer­gency call points, res­i­dents’ lounge, guest suite, laun­dry room, an es­tate man­ager, 24-hour on-site staff, a wait­ress ser­vice res­tau­rant, of­fer­ing a mid­day meal, per­sonal care ser­vices by ar­range­ment and one hour of do­mes­tic as­sis­tance each week, if re­quired.

The apart­ments ben­e­fit from a level ac­cess shower, in ad­di­tion to a bath, and the fit­ted kitchen in­cludes an elec­tri­cally op­er­ated win­dow,.
