Learn top tips on downsizing at local retirement lodges

A downsizing expert will be visiting Churchill Retirement Living’s Headley Lodge in Ashtead and Emmeline Lodge in Leatherhead to help retirees thinking of making a move to a more manageable home.

Amanda Fyfe from The Senior Move Partnership, a specialist relocation services company for older people, will be hosting a special coffee event at Headley Lodge at 10.30am and Emmeline Lodge at 2pm on Wednesday 31st May. Locals are invited to come to either event where they will be treated to tea, coffee and cake whilst listening to Amanda’s expert advice on how to tackle the emotional and physical upheaval of moving home and downsizing your possessions.

Anne Scherrer, regional marketing manager at Churchill Retirement Living, said: “We are delighted to have Amanda running two of these great sessions at our Lodge’s in Ashtead and Leatherhead. Downsizing can be a very daunting thought for people in their later life, so we’d love to see as many local retirees as possible visit us to learn some advice and guidance, which we hope can help them make a stress-free move into a more manageable property.”

Emmeline Lodge on Kingston Avenue is a collection of 38 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments for the over 60s, while Headley Lodge on Leatherhead Road comprises 33 purpose-built apartments. Owners can take advantage of the range of features designed to make later life easier; such as the Owners’ Lounge, Guest Suite and Lodge Manager, as well as security features such as a video-entry system and 24-hour emergency Careline.

All of the apartments have spacious rooms throughout and are an ideal combination of design and functionality. The fully fitted, stylish kitchens include a built in fridge and freezer, hob and an oven, which is located at an easy-reach height. All of the properties also benefit from illuminated light switches for added convenience.

Like all Churchill Retirement Living developments, both Lodges are set in landscaped grounds in a central location, just a short distance from public transport links, shops and all the local amenities on offer in Leatherhead and Ashtead.
