"Everything we do has been built around understanding customer's needs, maximising their independence, and offering real choices.

Belong Macclesfield, the towns ground-breaking development in Kennedy Avenue, offers a warm welcome to people living in the area and beyond. The village is a stunning example of how advanced design and very high standards of care can provide a new quality of life for older people. But it also has a reputation as a centre for community activities. A place where people can drop in, have a coffee, have their hair and nails done, enjoy a game of pool, discuss the latest news over a meal in the bistro, or simply stroll in the gardens." Show less
