"Having the stroke has changed my life but I am coming to terms with it more now. Life is much better. Hagley Road Village is definitely the best place for me to be. If you feel a little bit fed up there’s always someone to chat to."

Hagley Road Village

Meet Hagley Road Village resident, Geoff!

Hagley Road Village resident and former Structural Engineer Geoff Green says the gym at the Village has helped him enormously since having a stroke.

“I always used to enjoy being active, playing football and then golf. I was on the golf course when the stroke happened. It affected my left side and at first I couldn’t walk but I am walking reasonably well now even though I use a stick.

“I started going to the gym, just to see how much I could do. Dan, the Fitness Instructor, was very helpful and showed me how to use the machines. There’s a special machine that works your legs and arms, it gets my muscles working which is excellent.

“I have certainly noticed a difference since I started using the gym. It has strengthened my legs, I can now walk further than I used to be able to and my balance is better. I can walk around the apartment without using my stick since I’ve used the gym. It feels like I am getting back towards something like a normal life.

“I go to the gym three times a week and look forward to going. I feel it is good mentally and physically. You get to know the people who go to there. I think is important for older people to keep fit, not just to extend your life but to make it more enjoyable.

Quite apart from the amazing comfort, spaciousness and support, the village is a wonderful combination of lots of activities, wonderful friendliness, and the chance, when you want, to be alone and undisturbed. Everyone can do their retirement their way!
