Using the lockdown time wisely to rethink your future and the many opportunities on offer

In this current climate it is a difficult time for everyone and particularly those that are 70 + who are deemed most at risk, and are self-isolating to protect themselves

According to Age UK, 2.2 million people over the age of 75 live alone and experience social isolation and loneliness, and it is without doubt that during this lockdown period, the ideal time to think about changing this.

Now is the optimum time to consider future housing options, particularly if you are living on your own, or if your current home is too big for you and no longer suitable. Perhaps it is time to make the move to a retirement property?

At The Vale, our brand new rental retirement apartments are completed and available.  It is a sensible choice for those who have always owned their own home and are able to think about their next move.  Retirement homes offer increased freedom and flexibility alongside safety and security. Renting an apartment in a retirement development can enable you to keep your old home and rent it out to cover the cost of a retirement apartment, or alternatively, you may wish to sell and use the opportunity to invest in your future.  With time on your hands, many people are now seizing the opportunity and making sensible decisions to downsize.  

Renting in a retirement development also gives you the chance to move somewhere where you can develop your own community and be near family without the commitment and expense of purchasing a property. Bespoke domiciliary care packages are also available at The Vale for that added care and attention when it may be required.

Whilst this lock-down period has proved a real struggle for many with loneliness and isolation at the helm, it can also offer the invaluable time to consider your next move.
