You might often ask yourself, 'Should I retire?'. If you're finding the decision tricky to make, you can ask yourself these simple questions to see whether the retirement life is for you.
Do I lead a busy, independent life?
If you answered yes, then a Churchill apartment could be right for you. We advocate an independent lifestyle. All of our developments are designed with you in mind. Your own front door gives you privacy when you want it, but a communal Owners' Lounge opens up a whole new social life with like-minded neighbours when you wish. There is also the huge advantage of a 'lock up and leave' lifestyle enabling you to simply lock up and leave your apartment in safe hands for weekends away and holidays.
Do I have family or friends I’d like to see more of?
We have retirement developments across the country, so you can choose the location that suits you best – and have friends or family to visit or stay overnight in the Guest Suite any time you like.
If you like to stay social, friendly like-minded neighbours and the ability to socialise as and when you want means there's always something going on.
Am I starting to worry about garden maintenance or household repairs?
You can say goodbye to maintenance! The communal maintenance and upkeep of the development and gardens are all taken care of for you. All those irritating, time-consuming jobs like mowing the lawn are now someone else's problem. Your new low maintenance lifestyle will mean no more worries and more time for you to enjoy doing the things you love.
Do I need my own independent transport?
If you have a car, you will find that each development comes with a free car park but we do not offer allocated spaces.
However, many of our Owners find that everything they need day-to-day in retirement life is on their doorstep, so they can do without a car and save the costs of ownership - and the worry too!
I have so much furniture – what am I going to do with it?
Don’t let the clutter take over your life! You’ll be amazed how little you really need and what a relief it is to streamline your life and make things simpler. We have specialist advisors who can help you to ‘rightsize’, helping you sell or dispose of anything you no longer need. To find out how we can help click here.
Do I need help with personal care – dressing, using the bathroom, or similar?
Churchill Retirement Living is for people who are independent, we do not provide specialist nursing or health care. If you need help with day-to-day living, you may find that you will be better suited to a care home or another solution.
