Modern retirement as it should be

Brio Retirement Living is set to open its doors in an August weekend-of-welcome at its Landale Court development in Chapelton on the pretty Aberdeenshire coastline. To be hosted on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th August – its team of later living experts will be welcoming visitors, alongside their family and friends, to look around one of the area’s most vibrant later living communities.

The two-day event will give visitors a chance to look around the 72-home development of one- and two-bedroom cottages and apartments expertly designed for residents over the age of 55. The Brio team will also be on hand to explain more about the reserve-by-September packages worth up to £7,500*.

Cliff Wilson, 68, retired in August 2021, and took some time out to reassess his life and decide where to put down his retirement roots. Cliff was one of the first residents to move into Landale Court and shares his experience here: I’ve lived and worked in Edinburgh for the last 25 years – and spent most of this time living in my four-bedroom detached house with a large garden, but it eventually became too much to look after on my own.

“From the moment I took a tour of the development, accompanied by my sister, I just knew Landale Court would be my new home. I loved the show apartment, so I bought that! It has one bedroom, it’s very spacious, has plenty of room for everything I need, and the finish is just first class! I’ve got Neff appliances, and everything is fabulous quality, including my beautiful bathroom. The area, the amenities and gardens are all brilliant - it really is the ideal home for me and I’m extremely happy here. It’s perfect!”

Brio has ensured the stunning homes are available to all, with options on offer including rent, part buy/part rent or to purchase. Brio Sales and Marketing Manager Jess Nicoll, explains: “Landale Court is a fabulous place to enjoy modern retirement as it should be. We want to open our doors not just to showcase what’s on offer, but to also give people considering a move into a new home for their retirement a chance to look around during a weekend.

“We have listened to our customers, have made homes here accessible and affordable, and we can’t wait to show our visitors round. It’s a great way to ensure residents are happy from the very start of their retirement journey.”

In a bid to encourage residents to live vibrant lives, Brio has also invested in the creation of great amenities here including the neighbourhood green, fire pit den, quiet garden as well as The Hub – the social heartbeat of the community filled with a hobby room, club room and the Slate & Grain brasserie, bar and coffee lounge.

Visitors are encouraged to bring friends and family along during their visit to share in the experience – chosen slots can be simply booked online at here or via phone on 01569 730008. Visitors will be welcomed by the friendly, professional team at Landale Court and provided with refreshments as they experience and hear all about the homes and array of facilities on offer.

Additionally, an assisted living provision at Landale Court means that residents benefit from Brio colleagues on site seven days a week, a team who can help with everything from pet care, providing meals, to the collection of prescriptions, to attending medical appointments or a friendly face saying hello each day. A discreet, personal care service in partnership with Paramount Care Aberdeen is also available, with dedicated team members to help when needed.  

Jess concludes: “The well-thought-out provision of amenities that provide those living at Landale Court with a safe and secure environment in which they can live life to the full, is really important to us, our residents and their families. This is an inclusive community which provides so much to ensure a happy and fulfilled retirement and we can’t wait to share everything that’s on offer here.”
