Lifestyle Managers

Support & Activities

Every one of our retirement living locations has a dedicated Lifestyle Manager on-site.

They play a vital role in offering everything from friendly advice, emotional support to being an all-round party starter! This means our homeowners enjoy an independent lifestyle, whilst knowing that all of the help and support you may need is always on-hand.

In fact, research has shown that people who live in retirement communities have healthier, more active, more social, more secure, and happier lives. Whether you live independently or need a helping hand, our flexibility means we can tailor a service that perfectly suits your needs.

The importance and value of our Lifestyle Manager’s were best highlighted during the recent lockdown, with their dedicated support for our homeowners. Whether through safely delivering free care parcels, special ‘socially-distanced’ music performances, opera, VE Day celebrations, or weekly Pilates classes, there was always a friendly face or event to raise a smile.

Homeowners at Vista in Poole

“We have never felt isolated since we’ve moved to Vista. Every day without exception, our Lifestyle Manager emails or text us to make sure we’re alright or if there’s anything we need. Or have we got any ideas for activities that we would like to do and then she tries to make them happen.

We found out that she was a great cook and she brought cake in! We are very happy to be here and having the security at Vista.

The Lifestyle Manager is very caring and personable. It’s everything from our ‘Fish and Chip Friday’s’ to our coffee mornings, these are all things that have made it much easier for us and the community to come together. It’s really lovely and anybody that moves in here just can’t help but be impressed by the community spirit that Platinum Skies and the residents have made.

Listen, we see our Lifestyle Manager regularly and she keeps in touch with anything we need to know. We know we can ring or text her and she’s doing a great job for us. She’s a very pleasant young lady and really does care about her residents.”

“I feel like the community at Vista has really improved since we went into lockdown! It’s strange to say, but they have all formed a good bond and have been supporting each other.

Since implementing social-distancing, the homeowners have all fully supported this. I have been calling and emailing everyone to see how they are doing and if they need anything. I think this made the most difference to our homeowners who are self-isolating, as often I would be the only person they spoke to all day.

The homeowners also loved the free food parcels that we safely delivered. I have a thank you card on my wall in the office from one resident thanking the team, although she did mention she had no idea what she was going to do with a kilo of tuna!”
