Summerson Lodge, Portsmouth
“It is a great relief to us not to have to worry about the repairs and maintenance of a large house anymore and it is a weight off our children and grandchildrens’ minds to know we are safe and secure here. We would encourage anyone who is considering downsizing to visit and find out just how many advantages there are to this way of living.”
Laurel Lodge, Carshalton
"There are several like-minded people here and it’s a good community to be a part of. Living here is as near perfect as I expected it to be. I’d been considering retirement living for a while, and when I found out about Laurel Lodge it was the perfect solution. Downsizing was tough, and I had to be ruthless about de-cluttering a lifetime’s worth of possessions, but I got plenty of help and it was well worth it now I’m here in my attractive new apartment. I can see why the process of de-cluttering is daunting for some, but I’d encourage anyone else to do the same and they will reap the benefits once it’s done."
