On my first visits I was attracted to the greenery, the gardens and the colour. The landscape was well maintained by obviously dedicated and expert gardeners. After nearly three years this has not changed, and hopefully will not. I now still enjoy strolling the level walks, ponds and variety of gardens that abound, enjoying the changing seasons and colours. My self-care unit is light-filled, bright and modernised. It is my refuge, where I always feel safe and secure. The necessities of a shopping and outing bus are available. Maintenance services are provided and home care if needed. Unit cleaning can be arranged and meals to the door too. Management is always pleasant and available. I have met a number of volunteers who give so much time and energy to Village activities and do an incredible job with entertainment for all residents. Without their enthusiasm and friendliness a lot of pleasure for our community would be lost. We all owe them a resounding vote of thanks. This has been my experience to date, and if I had to make this decision again, it would not change.
