Two senior hires for Adlington Management Services

Jacqui Woodall will lead a team of eight (six duty managers, a housekeeper and a maintenance technician) at The Folds in Romiley and Aimee Clayton (pictured above) will also head up a team of eight at The Cottons in Ramsbottom.

Both general managers began their careers as carers and amassed more than 30 years’ experience in health and social care before joining Adlington Management Services.

Aimee Clayton explains the benefits of her previous experience: “Coming from a care background helps massively and makes you appreciate the whole concept of retirement living communities. When I think back to my time as a carer, I was going into people’s homes to help them and sometimes I would be the only person they’d see in the course of a week.

“I love the whole ethos of Adlington Retirement Living – we promote as much independence as possible but then we also offer support when it’s needed… and all the activities we have here stop people from being isolated.”

Jacqui Woodall: “One of the most important things to me is to know that we’re making a difference. Knowing that if somebody wasn’t living here, maybe they wouldn’t have joined in. It’s a lovely feeling when you can see people gaining new friendships, laughing and smiling. You just think that’s what retirement communities are about. That’s why we do this job.”

Adlington Retirement Living, which has always designed and built its own schemes, brought the management of its retirement communities in-house with the launch of Adlington Management Services in 2019.

Ed Gladman, Managing Director of Adlington Retirement Living, said: “Our move to manage our own developments is part of our strategy for long term growth. It ensures we can provide a consistently outstanding service to our Homeowners.

“Our communities offer a safe, secure and happy environment with a circle of friends and a sense of belonging. Over the past few months that’s been more important than ever. Many of our Homeowners have told us how much it helps to have such a strong sense of community and a friendly management team on site to provide advice, assistance and moral support.

“I’ve been really impressed with the way that our teams adapted to the challenges of lockdown and went the extra mile to support our shielding Homeowners. They’ve been shopping, collecting prescriptions, preparing and delivering meals to Homeowners’ front doors, organising online quizzes, online fitness classes and some even set up socially distanced gardening clubs. It’s made a huge difference to our Homeowners and it’s given their families peace of mind too.”

Mrs Davey, a Homeowner at The Folds in Romiley, said: “All the girls here have told me if I need anything at all, I’ve only got to say. Moving here is the best thing I’ve done because I can talk to people, I can get out and about or go for a walk around the garden if I want to. I love it here.”

Adlington Retirement Living develops and operates high-end, purpose-built retirement communities in the North West, Yorkshire and The Midlands.

Three Adlington Retirement Living communities have won Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards for the Best Retirement Development at the WhatHouse? Awards, the UK housebuilding’s most prestigious event. The Bridges in Macclesfield won the Silver Award in 2019, Adlington House in Otley won the Gold Award in 2017 and Adlington House in Portishead won the Bronze Award in 2015.

The judges recognised both the spacious, superbly appointed apartments and the unique approach to independent living, praising the fact that Adlington Homeowners don’t have to compromise on their independence, privacy and social life.
