5 tips to research retirement living communities

 Making the decision to look for a home in a retirement village is, in itself, a big one. Once you’ve made that decision, however, it’s important to choose a retirement village or community that can offer you the perfect mix of location, amenities and services to be able to build and enjoy life to the full.

Asking the right questions will help you to make an informed decision.

1. Onsite facilities

When looking for a retirement village to buy an apartment in, it’s hugely important to look at the onsite facilities. What sort of activities and amenities are available, and whether they’re a good match for your interests and needs.

For example, if you’re keen on keeping fit, it might be important to choose a retirement village with a well-equipped gym. If you enjoy walking or sitting outdoors, you’ll want to find a village with gardens and green spaces. At our Santhem Residences village, for example, in addition to our gym facility and beautiful gardens and terraces, we have our own cinema, a wellness suite, a bar and a private dining room.

2. Food and dining

From both a nutritional and enjoyment point of view, pay close attention to the food and dining options at any retirement village you might be considering. Some villages have restaurants on-site, as we do at Santhem with The Fable, while others offer meal delivery services.

We have an all day cafe offering complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits, as well as our own well-stocked bar, and we also offer our residents the luxury of a private dining room they can reserve, to entertain guests for a special occasion.

You’ll find facilities like these at many retirement villages, though not all of them will be on offer at every retirement village you look at. When you go to visit a village, check the menus and sample the actual food to help you make your decision. Also check, too, whether any special dietary needs you might have could be accommodated by the facilities on-site.

3. Activities and recreation

The social facilities and arrangements of a retirement village are also very important. Does the village have regular events and activities that you can get involved in, or facilities that you would enjoy or that would help you to stay fit? You’ll want to be sure that there’s plenty to keep you busy and engaged, whether you’re a social butterfly or prefer to keep to yourself.

At our Santhem Residences retirement village in Essex, our residents have the use of a range of activities.  These have included Pamper Days, day visits to Frinton-on-Sea and specialist food nights, such as Tapas Night.

4. Safety and security

When researching retirement living options, safety and security may be one of your top priorities. Check whether villages you are considering have a 24-hour Concierge team on duty. Additionally, check when you visit any retirement village that the common areas, both outdoors and in, are well-lit, and that there are no dark or secluded areas, especially between car parking and access to the residences. At Santhem Residences, safety is our priority which is why our in-house team is on-site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Every apartment comes with a built-in call system, so we are moments away should you need us.

5. Care services

Many villages offer on-site nursing care and assistance with everyday activities, while others have partnerships with local care providers. You’ll want to find a village that offers a level of care you feel comfortable with now, and which you’re happy will be able to support you should your needs change over time.

We provide residents at Santhem with care services managed by our Head of Care. Our Head of Care will develop an individual, personal plan to assist and support any resident. This might include helping them with basic household tasks like changing the bed or preparing meals, providing companionship for walks or to sit and chat over a cup of tea, or assisting with personal care tasks like bathing, getting dressed or getting in and out of bed. Care services are chargeable and you only pay for the services you use.

Take your time and choose carefully

When looking for an apartment in a retirement village, you should research all villages in the area in which you’d like to live, and consider as many features and factors as you can.

If you’d like advice of any kind about choosing a retirement village, whether or not you live close to Santhem Residences, do get in touch.

    A day in the life of... Aaron Strothard, Head Chef

    We’re pleased to introduce Aaron Strothard, Head Chef at The Fable Restaurant, at Santhem Residences Shenfield. 

    head chef aaron strothard

    How did you start your food journey?

    As a child, I was surrounded by family who enjoyed cooking and I frequently got involved with meal preparation to help out my parents. I soon found that I enjoyed being able to produce something which my family enjoyed eating. After excelling in my Food Tech class at school, I gained the confidence to pursue a career as a professional chef.

    Aged fourteen, I chose to take my work experience at ‘The Paris’, a fine dining French Restaurant. One vivid memory I have of this experience, was learning how to prepare fresh crab.

    After I completed college, I worked as a trainee Pastry Chef. After completing my Patisserie qualification, I decided to return to the restaurant kitchen environment which I had previously enjoyed so much.

    Have you ever worked overseas?

    After several years of working in a variety of restaurants, I had the opportunity to work at my aunt’s restaurant on a remote Greek Island. Led by two highly experienced Italian chefs, this is when I truly found my passion for becoming a head chef and running my own kitchen.

    After a season in Greece, I returned to the UK and fulfilled my ambition to become Head Chef. I remained in this position for nine years, developing myself and the team around me.  After the pandemic, I craved a new challenge and this is when I found my dream role within Santhem Residences, at The Fable restaurant….. and the rest, as they say, is history.

    Who is in your team at The Fable?

    You have myself acting as Head Chef and Thomas as my experienced Sous Chef from a well-established local fish restaurant. He brings a mass of knowledge, specialising in fresh fish and seafood…….and many happy laughs in the kitchen. Angela is my wonderful kitchen assistant, whom I have worked with for the last seven years. She creates some amazing cakes and desserts as well as getting involved in running lunch and dinner services. You will usually find her chatting to residents in the lounge at Santhem.

    How do you decide on the menu?

    The whole team have input on the menus at Santhem. Initially sourcing seasonal and sustainable produce. We then factor in nutritional content along with a healthy balanced diet. From there we trial, develop and experiment with ingredients until we have a dish that I am happy with. We then need to factor in allergies and dietary requirements. Our monthly menu change ensures that we are using seasonal, local and sustainable products.

    Any cooking tips for residents?

    As my partner always says, “Why cook when someone can do it better for you!”.

    What is your vision for The Fable?

    I envisage creating comforting dishes the residents are familiar with whilst incorporating a modern twist. I also hope to continue to introduce some new foods and dishes that some may be unfamiliar with, but may become new favourites.

      How easy is preparing to move to a retirement village like Santhem Residences?

      As we show around people who are thinking of moving to our Santhem Residences retirement community at Shenfield, we always keep one thing in particular in mind. No matter how beautiful someone thinks the apartments are, or how much they like the community’s setting or facilities, the very idea of moving home and downsizing, perhaps after decades of living in a family home, can seem extremely daunting.

      miniature home with keys

      Where do you begin if you’ve spent forty years accumulating possessions? How do you go about things when, perhaps, it’s been a number of year since the last time you dealt with estate agents or solicitors?

      As we try to do always at Santhem, we understand. Between our group of carefully selected specialist partners and the Santhem team, we have expert assistance available to help you with just about every aspect of your transition to a new start, living at Santhem.

      How could I ever declutter my house?

      Across decades of work, travel and family life, we accumulate a huge number of possessions. Shelves full of books we seldom open. Cabinets filled with crockery we no longer use. Wardrobes awash with clothes we may not have warn for years.

      The Senior Move Partnership are our downsizing and decluttering partner. They work with people of retirement age who are in precisely this situation. Patient, understanding and thoughtful, they can offer you advice and guidance, as well as hands on, practical help with downsizing your possessions, disposing of items you decide not to keep, and all of the other practical tasks involved in moving.

      How can I be sure I’ll get the real value of things that I decide to sell off?

      Perhaps you’ve invested over the years in particularly valuable furnishings, art, carpets or similar items. Maybe you’ve built up a specialist collection that you’re now ready to pass on as you prepare to start a new and less cluttered life here at Santhem.

      In either case, you’ll want to be sure that you don’t let your prized possessions go without realising their proper value. You may even want to establish what their sale value might be to help you take the decision as to whether to sell them before you move or not.

      To help with this, Special Auction Services are our expert auction partner. Their valuers will visit you at home to assess the worth of items you are considering selling. Specialist valuation is available for especially niche items, and they will give you honest and dependable advice on whether this is a good time to sell your property, and how it’s likely to fare at auction. If you wish, they will then handle the auctioning for you.

      Can I part exchange my current home for a new home at Santhem?

      The idea of being able to agree a part exchange rather than having to engage estate agents and delay your move while possible buyers look around your home for months on end can be very appealing.

      At Santhem, we work with a part exchange specialist called Silverbridge Properties. Silverbridge is a family run company with more 60 years’ experience in UK residential property finance. They have worked not only with us, but with other high quality retirement community operators, for over a decade, helping people wishing to purchase retirement homes to arrange deals that avoid the delays and inconvenience of selling privately, while still ensuring a competitive value for the property which is then offset against the cost of your home at Santhem.

      How would I arrange for the special care that I need if I move to Santhem?

      When you move into a new property at Santhem Residences, you are assured of a beautiful home, with extra care and support on hand should you ever need it. At Santhem, we have our own Head of Care, responsible for all the care services we provide. We understand that everyone’s needs are different, and so our services are completely flexible and customisable.

      If programming your TV is proving beyond you, your dog needs a walk and you don’t quite feel up to it, or you haven’t spoken to anyone all day and you’d just like someone to come and have a chat and a cup of tea, our care team are on hand to help.

      If your needs are more regular, however – perhaps help with getting to bed or support with medication – you can arrange for regular assistance. If you have specialised care needs (if you are recovering from a stroke, for example), our Head of Care can also explain the options we can make available to support you.

      You can talk about your requirements and wishes to our Head of Care who will develop a personalised plan for you and talk you through the costs.

      It’s been so many years. Could I get help with the whole business of buying a new home?

      It’s often been decades since people who buy a retirement home at Santhem have had to deal with the admin involved in moving. We make everything as simple as possible, but even then you will have questions about how things would work and, if you do decide to buy a home here, about how to arrange for various matters to be taken care of.

      The Santhem Sales Team are here to help with all of this (in fact it’s a little misleading to think of them as a sales team!) They will help you in any way they can, from showing you around the village and our show apartments when you come to take a first look, to helping you complete paperwork, organise the kind of help described earlier should you want that, and arranging for your new home to be exactly as you would like it when you move in.

      Why not come and have a look?

      You are welcome to come and visit Santhem at any time, by appointment. One of our team will show you around and will be able to answer your questions. And if you’d like to talk to one of our ‘move partners’ to get an understanding of whether they’d be able to help make your move here a little easier, we’ll be pleased to put you in touch.

        The difference between a retirement village and a care home

        What’s the difference between a retirement village or retirement community and a care home? This question is frequently asked by people who are already enjoying their retirement, who are approaching retirement and trying to make plans, and also by the families of older people who are trying to help them make living arrangements that will suit their needs over the coming years.

        view of show apartment

        While care homes and retirement homes may sound similar, the difference between them is fundamental.

        So what is a care home?

        A care home is a residential home run either by a private operator or, in some cases, by a local authority. It’s there to provide safe, comfortable and supported living for elderly people (or in some cases for others needing care of one kind or another) who have reached the point at which it’s not advisable, or not feasible, for them to continue to live alone.

        While not all residents of a care home require the same degree of help and support, community facilities such as a dining room, entertainment facilities and social events will usually be available for the use of all residents.

        Care homes are staffed by carers who are trained to assist residents with taking medication, or with carrying out other simple procedures necessary to maintain their wellbeing. Some care homes offer additional healthcare services such as physiotherapy or emergency doctors, usually on a private basis.

        In general, a care home works in collaboration with the resident, their family, their own doctor and possibly a local authority, to ensure that the resident is able to live comfortably, happily and safely. For the family of an elderly care home resident, this can be very reassuring, relieving them of daily concern over whether an aging parent is safe.

        Retirement villages. A different story entirely.

        A retirement village, sometimes also referred to as a retirement community, is a different story entirely.

        Retirement villages are essentially private property developments planned and managed exclusively to meet the needs of the over 55 age group. Individuals or couples purchase an apartment (or in some cases a house) in a  retirement community in exactly the same way as they might otherwise purchase one in any other village they liked.

        The reason for choosing a retirement community or village is that its planning, the way it is managed and the services available there will all have been designed to provide easy, enjoyable and comfortable living for people from their mid fifties upwards.

        As well as offering a range of accommodation suitable for one-, two- or more person occupation, retirement communities will usually have first class leisure facilities (like gyms, pools, tennis courts, yoga studios, restaurants and bars) on hand. There will usually be well lit, secure parking, and the entire community will generally be served 24 hours a day by a security team.

        While care provision is not generally a part of the core services offered by residential communities (as very many community residents will have no requirement for care) some communities do offer private care services, usually through outsourced providers with whom residents may arrange assistance or support privately.

        People considering moving to a retirement village will very often be looking to downsize a family home from which their children have flown the nest, and to free themselves of responsibility for maintaining the fabric of a large house or looking after its garden. A retirement village offers this kind of low-maintenance living, with the majority of concerns for upkeep taken care of for you.

        Whether single or in a couple, people considering a retirement  village are usually attracted to the idea of a well cared for place to live, with excellent facilities on hand, where they will be able to live alongside people at a similar life stage, and very probably of similar outlook, with whom they may share interests and be able to build new friendships to add to the pleasure of everyday living.

        They will also like knowing they’ll be able to take pride in hosting family and friends, and will be able to set out to enjoy the world in their retirement knowing that their retirement home in the community is waiting for them to return to.

        How retirement communities and care homes work financially.

        Care homes are for the most part privately operated. Residents pay a fee to live in the home and enjoy the support provided by its staff and facilities. In some situations, residents may receive financial support towards the cost of living in their care home from their local authority.

        From a financial perspective, living in a Retirement Community is much more like living in any other home that you own.

        People deciding to move to a retirement community will either purchase their property outright, or may rent it from the community operator, just as they would from any other private landlord. They will pay a regular ‘community’ fee to the community operator to cover the shared costs involved in maintaining the site and grounds and facilities, including providing staffing for these. Council tax, fuel and other amenity charges usually remain the responsibility of each resident, just as when living in any home of your own.

        Santhem Residences. An outstanding example of a retirement community.

        Our own Santhem Residences, at Shenfield in Essex, is an excellent example of a high quality retirement community.

        Santhem comprises a variety of one and two-bedroom apartments and penthouses sitting within beautiful, secure grounds. Each apartment is designed to meet both the current and potential future needs of residents, and finished to the very highest standards.

        As a retirement village, Santhem is a perfect place to welcome friends and family, or even to have grandchildren to stay. There are exceptional amenities, including our delightful The Fable restaurant, a bar, beauty salon, coffee lounge, library, wellness centre and cinema.

        Retirement village v care home. How do I choose?

        The choice between a retirement village and a care home makes itself, in most cases. If a person’s health or faculties are declining to the point at which it is no longer safe or practical for them to live alone, then it’s sensible to explore care homes further as an option.

        If, in contrast, you are well able to enjoy life to the full but simply wish to make things easier and more comfortable with a view to enjoying many years of active life ahead, then a retirement community, like Santhem, could be perfect.

          Avnish Goyal

          Avnish Goyal receives CBE for services to social care and philanthropy

          Chair of Care England and Santhem Residences, Avnish Goyal, has received a CBE for his services to social care and philanthropy in her Majesty’s birthday honour’s list.

          Avnish, who is also founder of multi-award-winning care provider Hallmark Care Homes, received the national honour for his work during the pandemic with the largest representative body for social care, Care England, The Care Workers Charity and volunteer-led initiative; Championing Social Care.

          Avnish started his career in care in 1997, and became Chair of Care England in 2015. Since his appointment he has supported the sector in various initiatives such as campaigning for better funding for social care and the appointment of a commissioner for older people.

          He helped found The Care Workers Charity nearly 12 years ago, of which he is now a patron to provide financial care and professional support to care workers. In 2021, the Hallmark Care Homes Foundation which he chairs gave a three-year grant of £78,000 to support The Care Worker’s Charity’s mental health support service which enables care workers to access free counselling.  He helped set up and is chair of Championing Social Care, which seeks to shine a light on the great work of the social care workforce through a series of annual events.

          In 2018, he established the Care Sector Fundraising Ball, which is the only dedicated fundraising event for the sector. The sell-out event to date has raised £348,000 for care charities and the black-tie fundraiser returns this September 24th at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane, London. In 2020, Avnish Goyal and his wife Anita, were appointed as Alzheimer’s Society Ambassadors, supporting the charity’s life changing work to support people affected by dementia.

          Avnish Goyal said: “I’m deeply humbled to be recognised by her Majesty, the Queen in her special Platinum jubilee year for my work in social care and philanthropy as we celebrate our own silver jubilee for Hallmark Care Homes.  I joined the sector because I wanted to make a difference and I knew I had something to offer. Over that time, I’ve worked hard, with my brothers, to establish a care company we can be proud of by delivering high quality care to residents in beautifully designed award-winning care homes and driving quality and care standards in the sector. I have enjoyed working with Care England and numerous charities which support and promote our caring and committed workforce. I’m delighted that my work has been recognised at the highest level. I know that this honour will act as a further catalyst to take my work in social care and philanthropy to the next level.”

          Martin Green, Chief Executive of Care England, said: “In his role as Chair of Care England, and through the high-quality services provided by Hallmark Care Homes, Avnish Goyal has made an outstanding contribution to the care sector and he has always been a powerful advocate for high-quality care and innovations that improve people’s lives. Avnish ‘s contribution to society goes far beyond his work in care, and through his philanthropy, in the UK and internationally, through his work with the Hemraj Goyal Foundation he has transformed the lives of thousands of people. Everyone at Care England, and throughout the care sector, will congratulate Avnish on his well-deserved appointment as a CBE.”

          Karolina Gerlich, Chief Executive Officer of The Care Workers Charity said: “I’d like to say a huge congratulations to Avnish for his well-deserved award. We thoroughly appreciate all the support Avnish and Hallmark Care Homes’ Foundation have provided in raising awareness and grant giving to the Care Workers Charity. It’s important to Avnish that he leads by example and gives back to the sector that he works in and we really respect this about him.”

          Stephen Burke, Chief Executive Officer of Hallmark Care Homes Foundation and Hemraj Goyal Foundation said: “Avnish’s honour is richly deserved for his tireless support for charities: Avnish firmly believes in giving back and has an outstanding track record of running not just great care homes but also giving millions of pounds and thousands of hours to charities. Avnish has created two charitable foundations supporting people of all ages and has set up several pioneering partnerships to promote care and support care workers. Together with his wife Anita, Avnish has raised awareness of dementia as an ambassador for the Alzheimer’s Society and raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for both the Alzheimer’s Society and the Care Workers Charity through the annual Care Sector Fundraising Ball. But his work has not finished. Avnish and Anita, have big ambitions for the Hemraj Goyal Foundation’s workshops with schools in disadvantaged communities promoting positive mindsets and life skills for more young people. And the Hallmark Foundation is working to enable everyone to age well through its support for innovation, research and charities.”
