A Word from our Residents....
" My family and friends are just thrilled that I am here. They've seen the happiness that has come about for me and they can obviously give credit to The Poynton. They're happy because I am happy" John Thompson
" There's no time to go to work! The activities keep us feeling young and active. If we were in our own homes, we wouldn't be doing half the things we do here," Jan Ellin
" We've got people with such diverse backgrounds, it's good to be able to mix with all kinds of people, whereas in your own home, you wouldn't have that opprtunity. It's a very happy place . I think it is like one big, happy family!" Terry and Phyllis Huckle
"My main concern was security because I was I was living in a big house down a right of way so I didn't feel safe there. I love that we have wonderful staff here, who keep you secure and make you feel good," Pru Giles
" We like travelling, and now I don't have to worry about the roof leaking or the hedge growing. We can go away, and I don't have to worry about any of the maintenance. I'm forever impressed!" Garry Carter

What are the residents rights if the village got into financial difficulty? ×Residents are protected through a first ranking mortgage with the Village's Statutory Supervisor . They hold first ranking mortgage over the village land in order to ensure priority and security for the rights of all residents. The statutory supervisor also ensures the operator of the village acts in accordance with the Disclosure Statements and the village is run in a financially responsible manner.
