Retirement: Living Life to the Full in Later Life

two elderly ladies laughing and smilingThere’s a perception that life starts to slow down the minute you enter your 50s. Hit your 60s and it’s cocoa and slippers all the way. Or is it? 

Our purpose-built retirement communities offer people a great home and a great way of life. Our apartments and bungalows are designed to provide security, independence and real peace of mind with expert care on hand if you need it.

Live in a community you’ll be proud to call home.

Retirement Communities in Warrington...
Owned by GGHT (part of the Torus Group), the three communities in Great Sankey, Woolston and Appleton provide much more than just affordable retirement homes. There’s support available from professional and friendly staff, together with a thriving social scene that would be the envy of much younger generations.

All the residents we spoke to were keen to point out the advantages of community based retirement living. You rent your own apartment or bungalow, so you keep your independence and can live as privately as you like but there’s a whole range of opportunities right on your doorstep too.

Apartment blocks, which are light and airy, feel more like hotels. Rent for a typical one bedroom apartment
starts at around £154 per week.​

What you​ get?
  • Your own generous sized apartment or bungalow
  • Fitted kitchen
  • Living/dining room
  • Bedroom/rooms
  • Bathroom with level access shower
  • Double glazing and central heating

Typical facilities...

Retirement communities like these are a great choice when it’s time to downsize and get the most out of life.  Residents enjoy an active, independent lifestyle and, as staff are on site until 10pm each evening, there’s the added peace of mind that help and assistance is close at hand​ should you need it.

To view the bungalows or apartments contact:

Woolston Hall (Hall Rd, Woolston): 01925 816313  
Sankey Manor (Vine Cres​cent, Great Sankey): 01925 725491

You can also contact your Neighbourhood Officer who can answer any questions regards downsizing and assist in the moving process.


Did you know that if you are living in a GGHT 2 or 3 bedroom house, under the CHOOSEaHOME policy you will get the top priority to downsize to a one bedroom flat or bungalow and you will get to choose where you want to move to. 

Why not contact the CHOOSEaHOME team to discuss the properties we have available and find out how easy it is to downsize? Or if you prefer, contact one of the Retirement Communities direct and arrange to have a look around and chat with the staff to see what is on offer. 


GGHT has a large number of bungalows available to rent across Warrington. These properties can make great new homes for people who wish to live somewhere that is smaller and easier to manage. ​However, we also know that for many of our customers, moving home can be stressful and a daunting experience as there are emotional ties to their current home and anxiety about the upheaval. 

If you feel you would benefit from moving to a bungalow but are worried about the thought of moving, why not contact us and discuss what would be involved with our friendly staff. Our CHOOSEaHOME team can discuss the properties we have available, offer support and even help during the move.
