Good retirement villages improve wellbeing: here’s why


Retirement villages are becoming more commonplace in the UK with new developments springing up across the country.  Here at Lynwood Village in Sunninghill, near Ascot, we know for a fact that people usually enjoy marked improvements in their physical and mental wellbeing when they move here.  But why does living in a retirement village improve wellbeing?

Easy social contact

Loneliness can affect anyone; even people with loving families and strong social networks can be lonely and sustaining a social life can be hard work if you’re single.  Good retirement villages create plenty of opportunities for social contact.  When it’s easy to make friends and find company when you feel like it, feelings of isolation quickly become a distant memory.

A busy lifestyle

Having too much time on your hands can be dispiriting.  A sense of purpose is crucial to wellbeing and a successful retirement village will offer a wide range of appealing activities and excursions as well as having onsite facilities to make your days pleasurably busy.  Simply being more active makes people feel better.

Improved physical fitness

Exercise is even more important for over 65s and retirement villages often provide classes and activities that will improve functional fitness.  We’re very fortunate at Lynwood to have a team of physiotherapists onsite running specially designed exercise classes for owners who often see huge improvements in mobility, flexibility and confidence.

The right environment

Having someone else take care of buildings and garden maintenance is an enormous relief when you move to a retirement village. An even more important benefit is being in an environment you can navigate easily, at all levels of mobility. Knowing you’re in an environment that will work for you at any age brings peace of mind to owners and their families.

Access to care and support   

Whether it’s you or your partner whose needs change, knowing you can put care and support in place quickly and easily, with no need to move, is very reassuring.  As well as an onsite Care and Support team, Lynwood Village has a superb care centre onsite, so if one half of a couple needs full time care, their partner is still nearby, which takes a lot of the stress out of the situation.

“I wish I’d moved here sooner”

Those who do take the plunge almost invariably tell us they wish they’d to moved to Lynwood sooner and that living at here has improved their quality of life, so if there’s a good retirement village near you, it’s worth a closer look.
