Marie Crates and Phyllis Baker

Mum and daughter Phyllis Baker and Marie Crates are both interested in moving into Longbridge Retirement Village.

Phyllis, an 85 year old widow, moved in with her 63 year old daughter, who is divorced, five years ago.

Marie, a former nurse, said the Village would be ideal for both of them.

“Mum is finding the stairs difficult and she is isolated,” she said. “She worries when I’m out. The least little noise frightens her.

“Mum has worked all her life. I have taken a bit of her independence. I do everything in the house. Mum needs support getting washed and dressed. I think living in the Village would mean that she would be more independent.

“You can’t get anything better than this type of Village as you get older!”
