Our "Live Happy" goal

Put simply, “Live Happy” is about creating an experience that helps you live a content and stress-free retirement. And at St Ives, that puts you at the heart of everything we do.

From the amenities and activities we offer, to the everyday engagement you have with our staff, we rate the success of our Villages on your happiness.

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.
