Our properties have small communities, with gardens, restaurants and communal lounges where residents can enjoy the companionship of others.

Sanctuary Retirement Living properties help to make your life easier and offer convenience with onsite facilities and personal services. Each property is different but many have hairdressing and beauty salons, social rooms, a Taste Restaurant and guest suite.  Additional facilities may include an assistive bathroom, games room with pool table, board games and a darts board, gym, computer facilities, reading room, meeting rooms and social rooms for private hire.


Weekly organised activities vary at each service, as our staff work closely with residents to decide what they’d like to do. Many services work in partnership with local organisations to offer exercise classes, talks, craft sessions or anything else you may be interested in.   Services have resident groups which can organise their own activities and fundraising opportunities to make thriving and lively communities. Read our property listing pages to find out what activities are organised as your nearest service.

Taste restaurants

Many Sanctuary Retirement Living properties have their own restaurant offering a full menu of breakfast, lunch and snack options throughout the week.

The pay-as-you-go dining system is there to use as and when you’d like. There is plenty to choose from with healthy options and all special diets catered for. Enjoy a meal or coffee break with family and friends in Taste restaurants that are open to the public. Book a table for special occasions when themed menus and offers are available.
