Just completed, Castle View Windsor, had to be ‘good enough for Mum’ – that was the vision of Robin Hughes, Founder and CEO, Castle Retirement Living, set out to achieve – and an urban retirement development with a difference.
With a third of apartments already reserved, Castle View Windsor offers some of the most spectacular castle views in town from its own rooftop sky lounge, bar and terrace. One of the largest and most innovative urban retirement villages in the UK, the £50 million development provides a total of 64 apartments including five spectacular rooftop apartments, along with a neighbouring 72 bed care home, which is being operated by Care UK.
With Robin’s Mum amongst its first residents, prices at Castle View Windsor start from £390,000 for a one bed to £790,000 for a three bed or two bed plus apartment with dining or study on the first-third floors, while prices will be released for the rooftop apartments shortly.
Perry Manor care home in Worcestershire has become Care UK’s fourth home to secure an outstanding rating from the Care Quality Commission.
The home opened in 2014 has places for around 80 residents and is the first older people’s care home in Worcestershire to be rated as outstanding. One of the five areas inspectors gave the highest rating was for leadership - which is spearheaded by home manager, Katherine Matthews. In the report, one relative mentioned: “I cannot praise or thank the team enough. They are shining examples of outstanding, exemplary care. Much of this comes down to leadership and I am indebted hugely to Katherine and her team.”
