  • Richmond Care Villages opened its first village 20 years ago in Nantwich, Cheshire. Letcombe Regis village is its latest and is soon to be joined by a further retirement village in Witney. Richmond Villages are part of Bupa, a leading healthcare provider offering a range of products and services, including health assessments, physiotherapy, and health insurance and over 300 care homes.  Richmond Villages are purpose built to the highest possible standards, our luxury retirement communities allow people to enjoy an independent lifestyle within a supportive continuing care community.  A typical village will employ approximately 150 people including village manager and heads of departments, nursing and care staff, hospitality, activities team, housekeeping, administration, gardening, maintenance and drivers. The villages are designed to allow residents easy access to a range of facilities, services and social activities with the reassurance of onsite care and support if required.
