When Eileen Cundell was weighing up whether to make the move to a brand new apartment at Churchill Retirement Living’s Moorhouse Lodge in Huntingdon, it was the blossoming of a firm new friendship that helped make up her mind.
"I was looking for somewhere safe and secure with nice people around me," recalls Eileen. "Churchill's Sales Executive Vonnie was a tremendous help, but I was still undecided about the move, so she suggested I come along to one of the Lodge's regular social events. I turned up not knowing anyone, and was more than a little nervous, but I sat down with a group of people and we got talking, and one gentleman in particular made me feel so very welcome. We got on really well and made a connection straight away. Until then I had been in doubt about the move, but meeting Wilf helped me make the decision.
"After that I had a look at a one bedroom apartment and fell in love with it straight away. I've settled in very quickly as I feel there are people around like Wilf who will look out for me. Of course there's also our lovely Lodge Manager Alison, but Wilf was definitely the deciding factor. We're firm friends now and enjoy each other's company a great deal. Moving here was the best decision I could have made, and I'm happier now than I have been for years."
