Luxury homes enable safer living for the elderly

Elysian Residences has developed a new type of retirement living that can be described as five star luxury living with added safety features.

Its retirement complexes include a spa, hydrotherapy pool, gourmet restaurant, 24-hour concierge, chauffeur service and valet parking. All this comes at a price. Residents can pay nearly half a million pounds for a one-bedroom apartment, and some two-bedroom rooms cost more than a million pounds.

All the homes are decorated and fitted to a high standard. There are many communal areas where residents can socialise. Furthermore, the resident’s lounge and restaurant both have solid wood flooring.

Discrete safety features for the elderly have been incorporated in the design of the retirement homes. All rooms are covered in non-slip flooring, especially in the bathrooms. The 24-hour concierge service is on hand if a resident has an emergency.

The sales director of Elysian Residences, Ian Brownridge says:

“The residences themselves are rather like living in a five-star hotel with an atmosphere designed to feel more like a private members’ club. It’s lavish living with a safety net.”

For elderly Cheshire people who want to remain in their own homes, there are adaptations that can make home life safer. It’s worth installing non slip flooring in Cheshire homes to prevent falls. Wood floors can be slippery but anti-slip coating can be applied. Wearing slippers or trainers with non-slip soles rather than hard-heeled shoes or socks is a simple but effective way of reducing the risk of slipping.
