Commenting on his appointment, Bax said: ‘Building communities that support older people in their own homes can make a massive difference to the growing population of over 75s – reducing isolation, promoting an active lifestyle and helping with daily chores, not to mention the family housing it releases and the reduction in care costs. But the UK remains woefully undersupplied – the retirement village sector is a huge opportunity and I am delighted to lead RVG on the next stage of its growth.’

Retirement Villages has 16 sites across the UK.
