Relocating to a retirement village in Scotland might just be the key to unlocking your dream retirement.
Whatever your dream retirement looks like – whether it’s filled with family, socialising with friends, hobbies or travelling – you can make it happen in a welcoming retirement village.
Stylish surroundings, excellent facilities, independent living, flexible support packages, a great sense of community with like-minded people – you can have it all.
But what is life really like in a retirement community in Scotland? Landale Court, an age-exclusive community on the Aberdeenshire coastline, is a place where you’ll find all your questions answered.
What is the difference between a care home and a retirement village in Scotland?
According to the AGE UK website: “Care homes provide accommodation and personal care for people who need extra support in their daily lives.”
This can include help with things like washing, dressing and taking medication. There are also different types of care homes that offer specialist support, like dementia care.
Meanwhile, an age-exclusive retirement community is designed specifically for older people who enjoy living independently. These self-contained communities often offer facilities for all residents to enjoy a more luxurious lifestyle. It could take the form of apartments, homes or cottages – or a mixture of different property types available to rent or buy.
What care and support is available at a retirement community?
The care and support available varies depending on the retirement community in Scotland you’re considering, so always ask the question when considering moving to one.
Landale Court, for example, is a safe and secure community of one and two-bedroom apartments and cottages located on a beautiful stretch of the Aberdeenshire coastline in Chapelton. It offers flexible lifestyle support packages. This can include help with the likes of cleaning, laundry and even IT support.
Are there age restrictions on moving to a retirement village?
Many retirement villages in Scotland are age-exclusive, meaning you have to be above a certain age.
Landale Court, for example, is available exclusively to over 55s.
Can I bring a pet with me to a retirement community?
Check with the specific community you’re looking at. At Landale Court, pets are welcome with permission from the General Manager.
At Landale Court, you’ll discover that there are also additional services for residents with pets. This includes dog walking and pet sitting!
What sort of facilities can I expect to find at a retirement community?
