Meet Joan and Joan, two friends who feel right at home at Charingfield

We love supporting residents to their live their way. For Joan and Joan, this means creating their own daily routine with plenty of opportunities for spending time together.

How did you become such good friends?

We’ve actually known each other for more than 80 years! We went to the same kindergarten and school, but then lost touch. As soon as we moved in to Charingfield, we instantly recognised each other from all those years ago! Now, we both love catching up daily to share news and chat about sport. We especially enjoy getting our nails done together.

Why does Charingfield feel like home to you?

We love the small house design here because it feels more like home. It’s more personal to have our own smaller kitchen, dining room and loungeroom, rather than a giant communal area. We can pop to our kitchen anytime for a drink or a snack, and it’s lovely sharing mealtimes with our neighbours.

What else do you enjoy about Charingfield?

We have so many choices for our meals, and our rooms are very spacious with balconies and plenty of fresh air. Of course, the gardens surrounding us are stunning. We love welcoming our family and friends to visit us, and the staff here are so helpful and supportive.
