EMERSON PARK CELEBRATES VIP OPENING OF LUXURY RETIREMENT VILLAGE AND CARE HOME Emerson Park in Hextable, part of the Cinnamon Care Collection, last month welcomed 100 VIPs at its official opening. The ribbon cutting ceremony was officiated by chairman of Sevenoaks District Council, Councillor Pat Bosley and Reverend Johnny Douglas. Guests enjoyed a celebratory atmosphere as they toured the bespoke facilities for the 47 luxurious retirement apartments, including a club room, bar, exercise studio, cinema and hair salon. VIPs also visited the on-site luxury care home which provides state-of-the-art facilities in homely surroundings offering exemplary standards of residential, nursing, dementia and respite care and support. “We were delighted to welcome our VIP guests here for our official opening. There is such a need for high-end, luxury retirement living throughout the UK, highlighted by the fact that we have already sold over 40 per cent of our retirement apartments,” said Paul Hart, general manager of Emerson Park. “Residents are purchasing properties for all sorts of reasons, from couples looking to downsize and perhaps free up finances to enjoy hobbies and travel to single people, widowers and widows who are keen to benefit from the extensive range of activities and support provided by our dedicated on-site staff.” “Our care home, Emerson Grange, has been designed and built to the very highest standards,” he added. “Every aspect of the new care home has been planned with the people that Cinnamon care for in mind – whether it is the personalisation of care plans, the careful selection of room décor, mealtimes, hobbies or personal routines.” For further information on Emerson Park, call 01322 515421, or visit 174
