Your retirement living update

£6m facelift for schemes

We spent £6million refurbishing Retirement Living schemes in the year to April – and it’s part of a bigger £27million investment programme.

Now we have started consulting with even more customers about the next phase of improvements in their schemes.

Celebrate, de-stress and prepare for a super sleep!

Your new Health and Wellbeing Service has been well and truly launched – and thousands of you have been joining in all over the country.

From getting online to tackling loneliness and keeping an eye on your health, new monthly themed activities went live in May… and there’s plenty more to come.

October: Let’s Celebrate Older Persons Month

Sunday 1 October is National Older People’s Day. To celebrate, throughout October there’ll be quizzes, entertainment and a national party aimed at celebrating seniors’ achievements. Look out for the poster in your scheme to get involved. 

November: Stress Less and Sleep Better 

Find out how keeping active, reducing stress and improving sleep can help you. Look out for top tips and a scheme prize, too.

December: Festive Fun

Christmas parties, a surprise competition and the chance to give back by supporting local food banks.

Thanks for The Big Lunch

Thanks to more than 1,000 customers in over 70 schemes who took part in The Big Lunch, aimed at bringing people together.

Street parties, sing-songs, bake-offs, strawberry teas and 1940s-themed celebrations were all on the menu at the June event.

Thanks to all the customers and staff who took part – it really was a fantastic day.

World’s Biggest Coffee Morning

This event – in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support – takes place on 29 September, but you can hold your own coffee morning any day in October.

Your scheme staff have all the resource packs to help you organise an event, so please ask for one and let’s have a brew!
