"I lived in a very nice two-story house in Clones town, and although it was a town I felt very isolated there. After a hospital stay I started to think about my future, living in a large house on my own and I then decided to research what my options were. I found The Village @ Castleross and to be honest, I felt that it was Heaven sent. I put my house in Clones on the market, sold it and moved in here to my new home which I love.
The peace of mind when I moved here was just wonderful. The security of knowing that somebody is just a few metres away should I need them; there is always somebody around for a wee chat; and help with the maintenance jobs around the house is just a phone-call away.
I love my house as it just the perfect size and suits my needs, the peaceful walks, the coffee shop, the hairdressers and the secure parking for my car, all make it the perfect place to be living”.
"I moved back to The Village @ Castleross to live in 2017 and I am very happy here. The house size is just ideal for me and my dog Katie; There is a panic alarm button in the house should I need to use it - which is a huge comfort; I have WiFi which is very useful as I use my computer a lot for online banking and to keep in touch with family etc; I can have my family and grandchildren here to visit and I am close to all amenities that I need e.g. I can drive the short distance to mass in Carrickmacross.
Also since I lived here in 2008 there are some new facilities that I really value including the fabulous St. Francis Walk - a one kilometer walk that I use to walk my dog a number of times a day. I can go out my back door with my dog and access the walking path that is all tarmacadam so safe for me to walk on; it is a lovely quiet and peaceful walk that I thoroughly enjoy in all weathers. I have a small garden that is easy to maintain and means that I can still enjoy gardening. There are other facilities on the grounds that are available to me including a coffee shop, which my grandchildren love to visit with me, and an oratory”.
Leona moved in to The Village @ Castleross in mid 2013 to enjoy independent living.
Leona spoke to us with one of her carers Mandy and said, “I had searched for a place to live independently and I am very happy that I found The Village @ Castleross. It has everything I need in a home and is close to my family but also enables me to live independently. The house is lovely and I was delighted that I could pick my own colour scheme for the walls”
When asked what facilities in the complex Leona uses she said, “I make full use of the facilities available here including regular visits to the Coffee Shop for a chat and a treat. I also enjoy the musical entertainment that is available in the adjoining Castleross facility and on many occasions I entertain with my singing”.
A lover of music Leona has recorded a number of Country & Western songs and enjoys listening to them on her sound system in her house.

Where to live is one of the biggest decisions retirees face. Making the decision to keep the family home, downsize to a smaller house, or to rid yourself of the stress and expense that can come with home ownership altogether is a difficult one to make. Here in The Village @ Castleross we offer you a choice. You can decide to rent or purchase a home. You may decide to sell your house and rent one of our homes – leaving you with that extra cash to splash on yourself or family / friends. Or you may prefer home ownership, which we also offer. Again downsizing to one of our houses in The Village @ Castleross may also leave you with extra cash to spoil yourself and your loved ones.
