Brio Lifestyle

A Brio Lifestyle combines good health, opportunities and independence with tailored care available if required – it’s our vision for enjoyable and modern retirement living, delivered with respect.

High Quality Homes

Our homes are intended to meet a wide range of needs and budgets, and each Brio village features a selection of bungalows, cottages and apartments.

Brio homes are carefully designed to complement the unique surroundings of each individual development, so that our communities add to the existing local character. Whether this means meeting the Prince of Wales’ ideals for town planning in Poundbury, or matching the local heritage of Northern Scotland at Chapelton, we consider local context extensively when planning our builds.

We draw on many decades of experience in housebuilding - as part of Places for People - to ensure that all our homes are expertly crafted from design through to build, with high sustainability, reduced energy consumption and low maintenance costs. We bear the Home Quality Mark, giving our residents peace of mind in a safe, modern and comfortable dwelling.

Our Properties

Village Life

Each Brio development comprises far more than just housing. We base our villages around a Community Hub featuring a range of amenities, to make life more enjoyable and inspiring, at a pace our residents choose – both indoors and outdoors.

Enjoy food and drink at brasseries and coffee shops, or a pampering at a wellbeing suite. Shops and other services will also make the village feel like a community in its own right. And at the centre of each village, the Club Lounge is a distinctive feature of Brio developments that will allow residents to come together for organised events or impromptu social gatherings.

Every Brio village is also an integrated part of the wider community, with careful placement and planning to allow residents to benefit from the facilities, services and entertainment of their local area.

Discreet Care

As a retirement living provider, care and support forms an integral part of our offering, and we provide 24-hour, 7-day support from trained staff, delivered by Brio Care. We tailor our care options to meet individual customers’ specific needs, and ensure they are flexible to adapt as those needs change.

While we integrate the provision of these services directly into our developments, we also understand the desire for sensitivity when it comes to care. We are careful to discuss and deliver our support services with discretion, giving residents the peace of mind that their privacy is assured.

Outdoor Living

We place great emphasis on the quality of our apartments, cottages and bungalows, but our approach to a happy and fulfilling retirement doesn’t end at the front door of a home. We are equally dedicated to providing a welcoming and attractive outdoor environment, with landscaped gardens and beautiful village features.

We believe in the benefits of happy and fruitful outdoor living, at whatever pace our residents desire. Rediscovering green fingers in private gardens and allotments, enjoying country walks along our Exercise Trails, participating in outdoor events with fellow residents, or simply dining al fresco on the patio or balcony – a wealth of options await.

Shared Experience

Moving into retirement doesn’t mean that a lifetime of experience and knowledge becomes irrelevant – far from it. Age is no barrier to making a contribution, nor to learning new skills.

At Brio, we invite residents to participate in a variety of skills-sharing programmes. If our residents would like to explore new hobbies and activities, then we have plenty to offer. Or if they want to contribute their own knowledge and experience to help others, then we’ll offer the perfect platform to do so.

Whether imparting knowledge, gaining it or a mix of both, every Brio resident is welcome to enjoy the benefits of shared experience.

Flexible Technology

A modern home means making the most of modern technology, and a Brio home contains a wide range of features and smart technology, intended to make life altogether more practical as well as future-proofing for many years to come.

At a minimum, each of our homes will include their own dedicated control system, offering access to features such as temperature control, ventilation, humidity, energy monitoring and direct communication both with on-site staff and external links to friends and family. Using the latest in home technology, residents will even be able to connect this system to their own smart devices if they choose.

Optional additional features available to residents include Smart TV and satellite, operation of curtains/blinds, control and monitoring of white goods, and intruder alarms.
