Set on the banks of the river Evenlode, in the heart of the Cotswolds, the village of Shipton-under-Wychwood plays host to The Old Prebendal Court retirement homes.
The Old Prebendal Court is superior-quality development of four retirement cottages and sixteen apartments adjacent to the river and within the stunningly-beautiful grounds of a Grade II Listed, award winning, residential and nursing home – The Old Prebendal House.
The Old Prebendal Court properties are built to exacting, independent retirement living specific standards in Cotswold Stone. A painstaking design process including natural stone slates and leaded windows perfectly blends The Old Prebendal Court into this historic setting.
The result is the utmost comfort in retirement living – with the premise of providing complete independence whilst being able to call on the The Old Prebendal House in an emergency. And with a seamless transition into The Old Prebendal House should care needs change.
The entrance to The Old Prebendal Court
We have, and have had many couples retire to The Old Prebendal Court – and where one half of said couples required residential or nursing care – they were easily moved into The Old Prebendal House with minimal disruption. Friendly, familiar faces and knowledge of a persons personality and healthcare needs further eases this transition.
This relationship allows for the other half of the couple to retain independence, be close to the loved one, but without the added pressure of directly caring for their loved one. And crucially – this setup helps maintain independence in The Old Prebendal Court retirement homes.
