Local Village Boosts Residents’ Wellbeing

Nestled in landscaped grounds in Pickering, North Yorkshire, Mickle Hill Retirement Village is called home by a friendly community and boasts a wide range of onsite amenities that boost residents’ wellbeing and social life.

The village features an entertainment hub, called ‘The Pavilion’, comprising a cinema, gym, Jacuzzi, library and Café Bistro. Adding to the community lifestyle is the hair and beauty salon, resident run convenience shop and regular activities such as calligraphy, arts and crafts, singing, gardening, gym, board games and coffee mornings. The village also organises trips so residents can set off and explore the beautiful nature of the Yorkshire countryside.

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 me over with the fact that the carers are onsite.”

To ensure residents needs are catered for, Rangeford Villages has teamed up with national older person’s charity MHA, which provides a dedicated wellbeing service 24/7, to those who need help with household chores or assistance with dressing and bathing.

To help beat loneliness, all bungalows and ground floor apartments are pet-friendly and welcome both cats and dogs. Janet Ainsworth was able to move into her new home with her faithful cockapoo Honey and says, “I’m really happy she was able to move in with me. She is a great constant companion.”

Interested buyers have a choice of spacious apartments and bungalows starting from £199,950.
