The name Cognatum, meaning to have affinity with, was chosen to underline the same ideals in creating spacious retirement homes in beautiful grounds, combined with caring and effective management. Our developments have received many awards for their design, architecture and landscaping, as well as numerous recommendations from those who live in our properties.

With some sixty developments and 1,500 individual properties in twenty-one counties, the merger provides greater choice and opportunity to spend retirement where you wish; be it closer to family, or simply in one of the most attractive rural locations England has to offer.
