Greyfriars Court in Lewes, East Sussex has something unique to offer: accommodation specifically designed for people of retirement age who no longer want the burden of household maintenance.    The Court is not an ordinary apartment block, nor is it a residential care or nursing home.   Instead, it has been carefully developed to provide single people and couples with independent living in their own homes, but without the usual chores of maintaining a house and garden, and with some helpful additional facilities and support.

At Greyfriars, there is always someone around: a Duty Manager is on site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to deal with any problems.   Midday meals are available every day in the dining-room if required; there is a communal lounge area, a meeting room and an attractive walled garden.  The Court has its own Handyman, and all apartments, as well as the communal areas, are cleaned to a high standard by a team of Housekeeping Assistants.   Regular activities are on offer for those who enjoy them. The aim is to give all Owners the opportunity to enjoy their retirement years in the way they choose, within a supportive community and relieved of the major worries of being a householder.

When my parents moved to Greyfriars three years ago it was a weight off my mind – a perfect place for their later years. I’ve been impressed by the friendly welcome they received, by the comfortable environment and beautiful garden, and by how happy they are there.
