Adlington Management Services (AMS) has taken on six more retirement communities, in addition to the half-dozen it already manages.

The management arm of Adlington Retirement Living took over from MHA at Adlington House in Otley, West Yorkshire, Adlington House in Urmston, Lancashire, and Brooklands House in Stafford, Staffordhire, at the beginning of the month. AMS also took on the management of The Bridges in Macclesfield, Cheshire, and The Chimes in Cheadle, Greater Manchester, from Kingsdale Group.

Adlington Retirement Living is also opening The Spindles, its latest community in Menston, West Yorkshire, which AMS will manage.

‘In 2019 we formed Adlington Management Services as our own management organisation, to ensure the long-term investment and sustainability of all future communities. By taking the operations in-house, we can provide a consistently outstanding service to our homeowners and be absolutely confident that we are delivering the lifestyle they chose when they moved in,’ said Dr Ed Gladman, Adlington Retirement Living chief executive.

The growth of its management division is part of the group’s wider strategic expansion.

Gladman, who appears in the April edition of Care Markets UK, added: ‘We’re due to welcome homeowners to our 16th integrated retirement community next month in Menston, near Ilkley in West Yorkshire, and will be opening marketing suites for our 17th and 18th communities in Kempston, Bedfordshire, and Wylde Green, near Solihull, later this year.’
