The last edition of the Journal carried an introduction to retirement communities. Hartrigg Oaks is a non‐profit‐making community, developed without government subsidy, developed by the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust, and has become well‐known among those interested in different housing and social care for older people. Modelled on American continuing care retirement communities (CCRC), this retirement village has recently been the subject of a three‐year evaluation (Croucher et al, 2003). This article gives information about Hartrigg Oaks, and some of the findings of the evaluation.
