Local Village Boosts Residents’ Wellbeing

Life is a balancing act. We promise ourselves to look after our wellbeing but are inundated with daily responsibilities. To change this local retirement village Mickle Hill has made it its mission to support the wellbeing of its residents by providing a combination of social and physical wellness offerings. Nestled in landscaped grounds in Pickering, Mickle Hill is home to a friendly community and boasts extensive onsite amenities including a cinema, hair and beauty salon, gym, Jacuzzi, library and convenience shop.

Mingling with fellow residents is made easy thanks to Mickle Hill’s café bistro and regular events such as coffee mornings, a summer fair and art exhibition to name just a few. Resident Janet Ainsworth, 76, who moved from the Lake District to Mickle Hill says: “I knew instantly this was just a wonderful place. It felt like home from the very start. There’s so much to do around here and it’s a beautiful area. Mickle Hill also won us over with the fact that the carers are onsite.”

To ensure all resident needs are catered for, Rangeford Villages has teamed up with national older person’s charity MHA. The team provide a dedicated wellbeing service 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to those who need help with household chores or assistance with dressing and bathing.

Interested buyers have a choice of spacious apartments and bungalows such as a one bedroom apartment for £175,000 or a 2 bedroom single storey bungalow for £249,950. To find out more, call the friendly team on 01751 245000 or visit www.micklehill.co.uk
