‘I Promised Mum she’d never Go into a Care Home’

An Assisted Living apartment at Inspired Gifford Lea in Cheshire is a positive alternative to a conventional care home. Residents can take a dip in the pool, enjoy lunch with friends in one of the restaurants... and benefit from high-quality care and support.


At Gifford Lea, Inspired Villages’ later living community near Chester, residents can live life independently and to the full - while receiving care, tailored to their needs.

Inspired’s Assisted Living apartments at Gifford Lea offer an attractive alternative for independently-minded over-65s.

The Assisted Living properties at the luxurious retirement village, in Tattenhall, are available to buy or rent, and each one offers retirees the privacy of their own self-contained home. The Assisted Living package includes all utilities, as well as one three course meal in the comfort of their own home or in the on-site restaurant, all laundry, cleaning, provision of breakfast essentials and optional extras such as weekly personal shopping and therapy sessions. In addition to this, residents are also given access to fantastic clubhouse facilities and an active social life - all on their doorstep.

Feel independent... feel Inspired

James Cobb, director of Inspired Villages, which owns and operates later living communities around the UK, says: “These apartments are ideal for people who seek independence at the same time as benefiting from dedicated care services. As well as their own front door, residents have their own kitchen, living room and bedroom with en-suite bathroom!”

“Whether buying or renting, our Assisted Living apartments come with a range of services to help make life just that little bit easier. These packages also include the service charge, so you donít have to worry about such day-to-day matters as outside maintenance, gardening, property insurance or window cleaning.”


Be part of an active, lively community

Each Assisted Living apartment is located close to the wide range of social and leisure facilities that Gifford Lea is known for. These include Eric’s Lounge, a social hub for residents to meet up for a coffee, enjoy a light lunch, play games or take part

in other activities.

Meanwhile, this spring will see the opening of Gifford Lea’s eagerly-awaited Clubhouse and wellness spa, including a swimming pool, sauna, steam room, treatment suite and relaxation spaces.

Also opening in the spring will be a brasserie, garden room, library and a beauty salon.

More! More! More!

Gifford Lea’s Assisted Living apartments offer retirees a more affordable, more luxurious and more enjoyable alternative to a traditional care home.

James says: “They also give people more independence and more opportunities to socialise and make the most of their retirement.”

Embrace the Inspired life

The ethos behind every Inspired community is to celebrate the freedom of retirement and living well.

Residents can spend time with new-found friends, discover new passions and rediscover old interests. What’s more, their families are always welcome to visit ñ and enjoy full use of the facilities.

From Zumba to woodland walks, gastro evenings and rumba, Inspired helps residents to feel safe and fulfilled as they enjoy their favourite pastimes and make new memories.

Life made easier – and more rewarding

The one and two-bedroom Assisted Living apartments vary in layout and size and are finished to a high standard. Each one is designed to suit residents who require extra care and support by combining elegance and comfort with features that help to maximise independence.


James continues: “The kitchens and bathrooms are fitted with modern, stylish equipment designed to help make life easier and more rewarding. These include easy-turn taps, easy-open windows, level-access showers, and power sockets positioned at a convenient height. In addition, every apartment is linked to the village’s 24-hour emergency call system.”

“Dedicated staff provide meals in the comfort of people’s own homes or in the village restaurant, and a minibus is also available for shopping trips and excursions.”
