In celebration of our 20th anniversary, here are the top 20 quotes from some of ours Owners telling us what they love about their apartments and services we offer.
“I have regained my independence – I can now walk to the doctors which is just round the corner and the supermarket is also close by as well as a chemist and post office. I have registered with the dentist opposite the Lodge and there are also some nice independent shops within walking distance.” Mrs Cannon, Chadwick Lodge in Southampton
“Catherine from the Senior Move partnership was brilliant – I can’t speak highly enough of her. I was going to have to do the move on my own as I don’t have family nearby, but then I was offered the six hours help, free of charge, from Churchill Retirement Living. I am quite fit and still able to do most things, but I knew I would need help on the day of the move.“ Joan James, Steeple Lodge in Sutton Coldfield
“The Lodge Manager is extremely helpful and has been instrumental in helping us to settle in.” Mr and Mrs Proudfoot, Beaufort Lodge in Woking.
“I am very happy here. I have been able to pursue my passion forgardening at a much more manageable level with tending to patio tubs and planters bringing some colour to the small patio outside my apartment.” John Dufty, Hamlet Lodge in Gloucester
"I wanted a location that was close to my family - and also near to local shops and amenities, as I no longer drive. Waterside Lodge ticked all the boxes. The design of my one bedroom apartment - and the development as a whole - is very well done.” Mrs Ratcliff, Waterside Lodge in Tonbridge
“I couldn’t fault the Sales Consultants at all, they have excellent customer skills, and so does the Lodge Manager. I’d give them all 12 out of 10.” Linda Neale, daughter of Owner at St Francis Lodge, Solihull
“After visiting Brindley Lodge I instantly knew it was right for me. I went home and put my house on the market and the whole process was made so much easier using the Churchill Retirement Living Home Exchange service – it made a big difference to how I felt about the move.” Alison Skinner, Brindley Lodge in Sale
“We made use of the Selling Made Easy service Churchill offered us. The amazing thing was, we put the house on the market on the Tuesday and we had a firm offer by the Saturday. We went from thinking about moving to actually moving in a couple of months. It was marvellous!” Mr and Mrs Allen, Brindley Lodge in Sale
"We had planned to buy a two bedroom apartment but then decided to go for a one bedroom and there was so much choice so we could find one that suited us perfectly. The one we chose has lovely views too, which is a bonus.” Mr and Mrs Jones, Elgar Lodge in Malvern
“I was very impressed with the services offered by the Senior Move Partnership and cannot believe how easy they made my move. I would recommend their services to all customers moving to a Churchill apartment – it was very professional and completely stress free.” Mr Maguire, Bennett Lodge in Wimborne
“I was ready to slow down. I had needed a cleaner in my previous home and the garden was getting too much for me. Here, I can cope well with keeping my apartment clean and any major maintenance work is done for me.” Brenda Lees, Beaufort Lodge in Woking
“Everyone at Catherine Lodge is very involved with the social life that provides so much fun and enjoyment for us. We do lots of different activities, such as Christmas parties, Fish & Chip lunches, Keep Fit sessions and Birthday parties.” Owners at Catherine Lodge in Worthing
"The Owners' Lounge is comfortable and everywhere has “wonderful” fixtures and fittings. We’d seen other apartments but the care and attention to detail was nothing like what we saw at Steeple Lodge. We were so worried that it would be drab and uninspiring and it is quite the opposite – it's like being in a 5 star hotel!” Mr and Mrs Bott, Steeple Lodge in Sutton Coldfield
"Just across the road we have a handy bus service and various shopping centres, other places of interest such as services museums, Gunwharf Quay which is a hive of activity. As for me this is one long holiday, lovely walks, a long sea front, some places quiet and peaceful and others full of activity.” Pat Howell, Summerson Lodge in Portsmouth
"I am quite sociable and since moving in I have enjoyed spending time with my fellow owners and there is always someone to chat to, but you can also have your own quiet time and privacy here. My family are so happy for me and it has given my sons peace of mind as they know help is on hand here should I ever need it. I would definitely recommend retirement living, it is the best move I have ever made.” Mrs Rita Runacres, Middlemarch Lodge in Rickmansworth.
“I would definitely recommend retirement living to anyone who is considering a move. The lifestyle is easy and stress free” Mrs Turton, Waterside Lodge in Tonbridge
"On coming to live in Saffron Lodge, we felt at home from day one!. There is nothing institutional about a Churchill Retirement Living development. We have total independence, with our own front door, but with the reassurance of our Lodge Manger, a 24 hour Careline & a good group of like-minded people around us who have become our friends. Everyone should really come in and look for themselves. Mrs Stapp, Saffron Lodge Saffron Walden
“I love gardens but I don’t want to do any gardening anymore, and that’s the beauty of life here – it is all done for you. Living here is exactly what I thought, and hoped it was going to be like and a lot more. I have made lots of new and good friends” Mrs Gaason, Cambridge Lodge in Worthing
“Many years ago I started a computer course at the local college but I had to stop, so I was delighted when I found out that there were courses available at the Lodge.” Theresa Hendry, Osborne Lodge in Bournemouth
“It was such a good move for me – as I missed my husband and wanted to be nearer family and friends – and not only was the move uncomplicated but I am very happy and settled here in the space of only three months.” Dorothy Grist, Summerson Lodge in Portsmouth
