Friary Meadow concept explained

The team at the Friary Meadow retirement village have spoken about how the development is progressing and of the benefits of its ‘extra-care’ living model.

Due to open in Titchfield in December 2018, the £35m development will offer a selection of 86 luxury homes, comprising apartments, bungalows and townhouses, enabling residents to enjoy a high-quality, worry-free retirement, through routine housekeeping, 24/7 onsite care, three meals a day and several activities.

Friary Meadow will be run by independent retirement living specialist, Oak Retirement, which was founded by Dr Stephen Ladyman, a former Minister of Health responsible for Social Care.

He is confident of the impact living in an extra-care development will have on its residents thanks to its proven benefits on older people living in its sister development in Cheltenham.

The extra-care living model is recommended by the Department of Health and encourages companionship through a like-mind community of residents, while also gifting them with the independence of knowing they own their property and can come and go as they please.

Dr. Stephen Ladyman said: “Residents at Friary Meadow will also be able to enjoy the many benefits of an independent, worry-free retirement when it opens in December 2018.”
