Judith and her King Charles Cavalier, Molly, moved to Thornton Park after the house became too difficult to manage. It’s the best decision they could have made.

“I looked at a few retirement villages before I found Thornton Park, which was by far the best. I wasn’t able to manage in my house anymore, so it made sense that I found a place where I’d still have my independence, but didn’t have to think about home maintenance or gardening. I absolutely love it.

“My apartment is beautiful, and my King Charles Cavalier, Molly, is very happy here too. But I wasn’t expecting to make such good friends. The first time I met Diane, who also lives in the village, we just clicked. We’ve become like sisters, to the point where we almost say the same things at the same time.

“Living at Thornton Park is like being part of a big family. My kids live nearby and they’re so happy I moved here. It means they never have to worry about me. They drop in all the time and flick the kettle on. And they know that if I’m not at home, they’ll find me down in the café, having a laugh with my friend.”
