  • “It’s sunny and quiet and we’ve got a lovely outlook. It’s absolutely marvellous. We’ve been socialising with other residents and everyone is so nice.” - Allen and Patricia, Attwood Residents

  • "My apartment is beautiful. It’s on the ground floor looking out at the garden. I often wander out to the Community Lounge with my book and iPad to spend a few hours or for afternoon tea with my neighbours. I’ve been having dinner in the Dining Room twice a week. I feel very spoiled. I’m just loving it." - Margaret Holt, Attwood Resident

  • I have everything here I could want to feel very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and if there's a problem you can always go to them and they'll sort it out for you. It's so casual, that's what I like about living here. - June Wilson, Lady Allum apartment Resident

  • I'm in a lovely apartment. My next-door neighbour and I are very good mates and I didn't know her until I came here. I'm still very independent and I thoroughly enjoy it. It's all on-going care here and we all look out for each other. It's home, it's as simple as that. - Daphne Bennett, Lady Allum apartment Resident

  • “It’s open, spacious, secure. I’m very happy here. The other residents are really nice and because I’ve lived on the Shore we often find that we know the same people! I’m out and about most days but I like to mix with my neighbours at afternoon tea in the lounge or over dinner in the dining room. The food is very good and I’ve just clicked with the people here.” - Mary Griffiths, Attwood Resident

  • “There’s always something going on in the village but some people just like to do their own thing. It’s as busy or as quiet as you want to make it.” - Inverlochy Apartment Resident at Lady Allum

  • "I like the way the caring staff remember your name and don’t forget to use it." - Ms Eileen Pahl, Lady Allum resident

  • "Feeling safe is the most important thing I look for and this village provides it for me.

Great that we have access to a bus twice a week to go shopping in." - Ms Cushla McKenzie, Lady Allum resident

  • "The wonderful feeling of safety cannot be underestimated. The ability to join any activity, watch or abstain gives a great sense of freedom. I have enjoyed the companionship of similar ages like me and getting to know the amazing talent of these new friends." - Mrs Rhona Pilkington, Lady Allum resident

  • "The arrangement of the apartments seems to be well planned for all facilities and gives a fresh and welcoming first impression. It provides for maximum contact with the outdoors. Well done to the planners. The feeling of care is unobtrusive and pleasant but still maintaining privacy when wanted. Good selection of activities is available, if needed. I am very satisfied with my decision and sure it will continue to meet my expectations and comfort." - Mrs Helen Rogan, Lady Allum resident

  • The residents have the freedom to be as independent as they want to be. Neighbours here are very friendly and the staff are helpful and approachable. My wife and I are very comfortable here and are very satisfied that we chose Lady Allum for our retirement - Mr Graham Lush, Lady Allum resident
