All homeowners in retirement apartments get first vaccine jab

All homeowners in retirement apartments get first vaccine jab

by Tom Martin (February 2021)

All homeowners and staff at retirement apartments in Southport have received their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine.

Those living and working at The Sailings, on Alexandra Road, have now been given the first jab.

Adlington Retirement Living, which owns the developments, has on-site management teams who have helped homeowners to book their individual appointments. 

Alexandra Johnson, Sales and Marketing Director for Adlington Retirement Living, said: “It’s been a tough year for everybody but successfully providing our homeowners with the first vaccine against Coronavirus has given us all a lot of hope.

“Our on-site teams always look for ways to support our homeowners’ happiness and well-being and they’ve really gone the extra mile over the past 12 months and shown their team spirit.

“Each time our restaurants have had to temporarily close during the lockdowns, our catering teams have offered the same high standard of freshly-prepared, delicious lunchtime meals and delivered them directly to our homeowners’ front doors, always maintaining social distancing and sanitising trays between deliveries.

“Our team members have been shopping and collected prescriptions for our Homeowners and we created ‘pop-up shops’ at each development to provide a safe and easy way to pick up everyday essentials.” 

Edna, 84, who lives at The Sailings said: “It’s nice to have the gardens and the outdoor space here where I can go for some fresh air and exercise without worrying about bumping into people. Moving to the Sailings has been very good for me. I’m very happy.”
