Retirement Villages with the Quality of Residential Care Homes

in Care

n it comes to thinking about residential care homes, retirement villages or care homes with nursing, UK residents automatically think of moving to a country with a warmer climate and picturesque surroundings. One such place is the charming province of El Saltador in Andalucia, Spain. With an average year round temperature of 21c and high quality local amenities, this enchanting area has become a quietly popular destination.

The health benefits associated with a warmer climate have been medically proven. Well being is greatly enhanced by the sun and a warmer atmosphere. People generally live longer in warmer climates and enjoy an overall better quality of life. A warmer climate is capable of relieving stress, arthritis, respiratory problems and reduces the risk of colds, influenza and other illnesses related to wet, damp weather.

El Saltador is home to the Quantum 50+ resort and is based 3-km from Huercal Overa town. Situated in close proximity to the Hospital De La Inmaculada, one of the finest hospitals in Spain, Quantum 50+ offers healthcare unrivalled by other retirement villages in the country. Well being and quality of life are embodied in the valleys and hills of El Saltador, and complimented by scattered orange groves, long sunny days and blissfully warm evenings. The pace of life is relaxed and all needs are catered for by bilingual concierges who attend to the requirements of all residents.

Whilst retirement is pleasurable, at the same time one must consider health and accept that it will inevitably decline with age. This is what makes Spain such an attractive proposition for those who seek retirement villages or care homes with nursing. When you become a retired resident in Spain, you will be issued with a Spanish health card, allowing for free prescriptions and access to hospital care. The Quantum 50+ resort can also arrange for home health treatment, including GP visits, around the clock nursing care and general health checks. The resort also offers holistic therapies such as nutritional advice, lifestyle coaching, acupuncture, reflexology and physiotherapy.

Quantum combines excellent health care facilities and a broad range of activities catering for different levels of activeness. There are clubs to join and a host of things to keep residents occupied, including darts, petanca, quiz nights, greenhouse gardening, Spanish cookery, Spanish language classes and more. The resort is always open to suggestions of new activities and residents are encouraged to become coordinators and start their own initiatives. Quantum 50+ puts a large emphasis on outdoor activities and integrating with locals, the ethos is that life begins, not ends when you retire.

If you are considering retirement villages for yourself or perhaps residential care homes for a loved one, then Quantum 50+ is certainly worth visiting and seeing for yourself. They offer a fantastic 3-night's tour deal inclusive of lunch and airport transfers. Go and witness first hand the mesmeric landscape of El Saltador, the energising warmth of Spain and the positive communal atmosphere of the Quantum 50+ retirement resort.
