East Ayrshire retirement apartments now available

Glebe and Warrick Court, which is run by development manager Karen Murray - a veteran in the industry with over a decade of experience, is opening its doors to those looking for a retirement flat.

The development in Cumnock, East Ayrshire is welcoming, homely and originally started out as two separate buildings before joining together to make one well looked after and contemporary development. 

Glebe and Warrick Court has two communal lounges and dining rooms, a large back garden and is in a good location for access to the local shops, GP surgery and bus station.

Meal service is included in the tenancy at Glebe Court and is optional at Warrick Court, with support available to customers who need it.

Karen said: “There is a sense of community and belonging at the development, we have a social club where in more normal times customers would meet every morning, which is optional to join.

“The social club in more normal times organises entertainment at least once a month with singers and musicians, we also have bingo twice a week and the daily coffee morning.

“The housing team here are excellent and many have over 15 years of experience – keeping the standards high.”

Karen shared some of her stand out memories from her time working in the community adding: “I have great memories of the support from staff as well as customers for personal life milestones such as my baby shower, maternity leave and they even organised a bachelorette party when I was getting married.

“It really is a lovely place to be, with the sense of community which includes both staff and tenants.

“We are a development that offers safety and security whilst promoting living independently and can help give a new lease of life.”
