Retirement Options

For anyone with loved ones at that crossroads in life where you know things are going to have to change, it’s never easy to know what to do for the best.

Downsizing is certainly a goal for many older adults who are looking to downsize their belongings and home to enjoy a more active and maintenance-free lifestyle. And, when it comes to the size of your home, sometimes less is more.

Equity release is another one of the financial options that we can use. People have many perceptions of equity release, ranging from seeing it as a last resort to it being a cure-all solution for many financial pressures in later life.

Now, thanks to Platinum Skies, there’s another option. One that opens the door to lifestyle changes that aren’t all about meeting needs. One that can, and often does, bring joy and renewed zest for life. One that turns financial concerns around to everyone’s advantage.

“It’s a huge weight off my mind, knowing Mum has support if ever she needs it, day or night. It’s given her a lot more confidence and now her social calendar is even busier than mine!”

Life At Esprit

Bursting with character, Poole and all it has to offer is the Esprit owners’ playground with shops, theatres, libraries, restaurants, marina restaurants and cafes all within easy reach. For a day out or holiday getaway, both bus and rail stations are also just a short walking distance.

Esprit’s own impressive facilities include an on-site bistro, adjoining the communal private lounge, an area perfect for meals and after dinner drinks.

Friends and family can enjoy the best of Esprit too and can stay overnight by booking into one of the self-contained guest suites. This creates a comfortable and stress-free home environment for owners and visitors.

The Benefits Of Moving To a Platinum Skies Apartment

You’ll realise financial benefits.

You can unlock the money from your current home when you move to Platinum Skies. On average our homeowners release around £150,000, giving them financial certainty, the ability to support themselves in the future and a choice on how to enjoy their retirement.

You can enjoy your freedom

When you move to Platinum Skies you get the freedom to live a little more.  It could mean you take up a new hobby, enjoy more travel or indulge in more cultural and entertainment adventures. Esprit is in the heart of Poole, so you could go shopping, or enjoy a show at the Lighthouse Theatre.

You can protect your legacy

For many homeowners moving to Platinum Skies means they get the opportunity to protect their legacy, ensuring that they have sufficient funds available to pay for their care needs.  At Platinum Skies you remain a homeowner with an appreciating asset.

Reduced maintenance costs

Maintaining and keeping up your home and garden requires a sizable amount of time and money and this gets harder every year.   Moving to a Platinum Skies apartment reduces the time, money and effort in upkeep and maintenance for you and your family.

You’ll enjoy the right size space

A home that has the right size rooms to accommodate those living there and guests when they pop around to say hello will feel, cosy, warm and homely.  Our apartments are designed to be accessible for all, so you can enjoy today, without worrying about your future mobility.

Be part of a community

Our Esprit apartments have inviting communal spaces for socialising, to chat with a neighbour or to join in with activities as and when you choose, helping to combat loneliness and isolation, and regaining the sense of community and belonging.

“We couldn’t really enjoy life before because all our money was tied up in our previous property… Making the move is the best thing we’ve done.”
