Living with us

Our retirement living properties are purpose-built or adapted to ensure peace of mind for the over 55s as they reach their later years.

Located across England, Sanctuary Retirement Living services are designed to provide a home for life with independence. We seek to offer mixed and thriving communities to older people who need different levels of care.

While renting or leaseholding your apartment, you’ll have the benefits of modern services and facilities on-site. Most developments have their own restaurant or café, offering a wide range of freshly prepared meals, snacks and drinks seven days a week.

In your home for life within a Sanctuary Retirement Living property you’ll have reassurance that there will always be someone nearby: whether it’s a member of own team (on-site 24 hours a day), a neighbour or visiting family and friend.

 Each of our properties is unique. Décor in communal areas feature pictures inspired by the local area and rooms have been designed to suit their location. For example, due to the coastal location of Dunboyne Court in Torquay, residents have roof- top gardens to enjoy.


Our apartments are spacious and modern and have either one or two bedrooms. All apartments have spacious lounges and fully fitted kitchens (some come with white goods). Bathrooms have walk in showers and Jack and Jill doors so you have direct access to the bathroom from a bedroom or hallway. Handrails, fixtures and fittings have been chosen to make sure your day to day living is as easy and comfortable as possible. 

Intercom door-entry systems and fob systems are in place to maximise your safety, security and independence. For extra peace of mind each apartment is installed with emergency pull-cords that immediately alert a 24-hour team that assistance is required.

Care and support

All Sanctuary Retirement Living services offer support or care in your home. These personalised services are either delivered by our own professional and caring team or by the local authorities’ nominated care provider.  As your needs increase over time, so too can the level of care and support we provide (up to approximately 15 hours a week).

At Sanctuary Retirement Living, our comprehensive range of personal and home care services ensures our on-site team can help most things you  need; from personal care, arranging medical appointments, shopping, laundry and housework. We can even help with writing letters or sending emails.
