What are the chances of finding a retirement home that allows pets?
A: Most modern mature-lifestyle villages allow two small dogs as well as caged birds, as we do at Renishaw Hills. The more traditional models often do not allow pets. – Phil Barker, managing director of Renishaw Hills
A: Many villages including The Somerset Lifestyle and Retirement Village allow pets – even in ground-floor apartments. These pets must be registered with management but are a wonderful part of life over 50. – Rob Jones, retirement-living consultant to The Somerset Lifestyle and Retirement Village
A: Pet policies are vitally important for retirees and being pet-friendly is a must in the retirement market. The companionship that pets offer is an important part of everyday life and is also a great way for residents to keep fit and active. – Kevin Swart of Cenprop Real Estate – developers of Lazuli Coastal Retirement Estate
