Village life

Wesley Retirement Living Villages are designed to help you enjoy a happy and fulfilling life.

We offer freedom and independence, so you can live the life you choose. We also provide opportunities for you to experience friendship, community and a vibrant village life.

You’re free to choose the lifestyle options that best suit your needs. You may want to keep your own doctor, or access a local doctor who regularly visits the village. You may also wish to continue to be involved in clubs or groups in the broader community, or you may decide to join one of the many groups run by the village

Social life

We welcome people from a range of cultural and lifestyle backgrounds at our Retirement Living Villages and seek to foster vibrant communities.

Residents enjoy entertaining visitors in the same way as you would in your current home and each village benefits from the extended network that family and friends bring.

Our villages offer a variety of social opportunities such as art therapy, snooker, book club, discussion groups, indoor and outdoor bowls, craft, men’s group, choir, table tennis (activities vary from village to village).

You will be able to participate in the social life of the village as little or as much as you choose, and are encouraged to maintain and develop your existing social links in the broader community.

Recreational facilities

Your health is important to us. If you are looking for regular physical activity, our villages can offer ample scope to keep you fit and active. Each village has both indoor and outdoor recreational facilities for the use of residents and there are regular groups such as gentle exercise and tai chi.


Regular excursions include shopping trips, restaurant outings and movies. Villages may also organise visits to art galleries, theatres, museums, gardens, exhibitions and shows and other places of interest from time to time.

Residents’ Committees

All our residents play a role in the life and working of Wesley Retirement Living Villages. Each village operates an elected Residents’ Committee, providing the opportunity for residents to provide input into the management of the village in consultation with other residents. All residents are encouraged to participate in the general meetings and each year the annual budget is approved at a Resident Meeting.
