What is retirement living?

Brio Retirement Living creates unique age-exclusive communities for people aged 55 and over. Our mission is to improve the quality and experience of later life by combining good health, opportunities, and independence.

Brio Retirement Living is part of Places for People - one of the UK’s leading placemakers. With over 50 years’ experience in the business, we understand what it takes to make a community thrive, today, tomorrow, and in the long term, providing  a genuine sense of community for today’s retirees with our friendly on-site teams, amenities, care and support and schedule of activities.

Retirement living as it should be

The health and happiness of our residents is at the very heart of every Brio community. Retirement is a time to enjoy the hard work of years gone by and we work hard to make that happen when you move into one of our communities.

With a range of carefully designed homes, including one, two, and three-bedroomed cottages, bungalows, and apartments, we're finding innovative ways to make life easier for you. That's why our spacious, modern homes offer fully fitted kitchens, wet rooms and cutting-edge technology to help keep things simple. 

We value your safety and security just as much as you and your loved ones. That's why we have secure with video entry services, and a team on site 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

Be part of a community

Feeling part of a community undoubtedly makes life more meaningful and enjoyable. Every Brio development is a community in its own right, but we've also taken great care to choose locations where you'll feel a part of the wider community.

Shops, beautiful green spaces, places to eat and drink and other amenities such as GP surgeries and pharmacies, can be found close by - meaning you can truly relax and make the most of your retirement years. 

Brio is a proud member of the Associated Retirement Community Operators (ARCO) - the leading body representing the retirement community sector, ensuring the highest standards in retirement living, so you can rest assured that we're committed to you and your needs.

Care & support

Just as everyone is different, so is the level of care and support you may require. With this in mind, we offer as much or as little support to suit your individual needs, as and when you need it.
