Accommodation Options

Three unique accommodation options

The popularity of apartment developments designed specifically and solely for independent retirees is growing. McCarthy & Stone’s resale apartments are designed to the highest standards and are always in prime locations. Our clients’ needs are our priority, and we carefully ensure every detail has been thought of, from waist height ovens to easily accessible local amenities.

We offer three types of accommodation for you to choose from: Retirement Living for those who enjoy their independence and privacy, with shared social facilities available; Retirement Living PLUS (formerly Assisted Living) for those who need that little bit of extra help and support; and Lifestyle Living for the active over-55s (formally Ortus Homes).

Retirement Living

Retirement Living

This option allows you to be as independent as you like. Your retirement apartment gives you a quiet, peaceful and secure space in which to enjoy some time to yourself, while the homeowners’ lounge provides a great space for socialising and getting to know your neighbours. And with the House Manager taking care of the day-to-day running of the development, you are free of the burdens of maintaining a property yourself.

Retirement Living Plus

Retirement Living PLUS

By choosing this option, not only will you become the owner of a beautiful apartment designed with you in mind, but you’ll receive that little bit of extra help and support you need. Our on-site team is there to make your life easier and is always happy to help, from giving you a hand with your laundry to support with aspects of your daily routine. And with completely flexible support packages, you’ll only pay for the care you actually use.

Lifestyle Living

Lifestyle Living

The concept of Lifestyle Living was pioneered by McCarthy & Stone. Tailored to the over-55s, this option is all about providing stylish private living solutions that are low maintenance. From calming coastal properties to modern city-centre apartments, there is an option to suit all lifestyles and tastes. And with plenty of space for entertaining, without the expense of paying for bedrooms you hardly use, this isn’t downsizing, its ‘rightsizing’.
