At St Ives, we’ve set ourselves a goal… we want you to be happy!
We know it may be a somewhat lofty goal. After all, moving here may not have been easy. And life, too, may come with its own concerns.
But…we also know happiness is what happens around you…
Being part of a community, that feels like family – and where your family feels at home.
Feeling safe and secure
Trusting your neighbours
Finding a great home, in an area you love.
And at St Ives, we make all of this happen! Because happiness is not just your wellbeing, your happiness is (literally) our business.
You see, every decision we make, and every ideas we propose…. is about helping you be the happiest version of you!
In fact, we’ve set ourselves a Happiness Score; it’s our benchmark for tracking how our residents are enjoying their St Ives lifestyle. They relate to the real, tangible benefits of retirement living at St Ives, and you’ll find out more about our Happiness Score below.
