We also pride ourselves in caring for our residents throughout their years with us. A modern Frail Care facility is an important part of the overall development, providing you with peace-of-mind that you or your loved one’s will be well cared for if that need arises. The village already has an on-site clinic catering to basic medical needs and we are linked to other medical providers for more severe medical cases.
As for lifestyle and living the best years of your life, Widenham Retirement Village will replicate the model deployed in our other villages in terms of infrastructure, facilities, amenities, service and activities. These include bowling greens, tennis courts, club house, entertainment hall, gym, library, chapel and pool that are all in the development pipeline. A restaurant and coffee shop will come as the development grows. In terms of being “connected”, we have “fibre-to-the-home” in each cottage with a variety of line-speed and data options, as well as a state-of-the-art telephone system.
The village will cater to your desire for full, active healthy lifestyles and very strong sense of community, these being the not-so-secret ingredients in our family of villages. Recreational and sporting activities will be wide-ranging, covering most familiar activities.
At Hibiscus Retirement Villages residents can share their interests and develop new ones whilst maintaining their independence in a supportive and secure environment. We offer the perfect combination of community involvement, privacy and independence. Our vast range of activities include bowls, swimming, table tennis, yoga, gym, badminton, keep-fit classes, line dancing, snooker, darts, bridge, chess, water aerobics and various arts and crafts clubs.
