Moving out of our old home was emotional and certainly not
straightforward. During the first couple of weeks after we moved, I
didn’t know how to feel. There are the solicitors fees, removal fees and
we had to put our things in storage.
Luckily for us, moving turned out to be the best thing we could have
done. We’ve been in our new shared ownership apartment in the ExtraCare
Charitable Trust’s Longbridge Retirement Village for months now, and
it’s been an exciting new beginning.
Across ExtraCare’s five villages in Birmingham, the charity has freed up
750 three and four-bedroom family homes. There needs to be more
developments like these, where there’s life. We can enjoy our later life
without worrying, and it takes the pressure off our daughters.
