About us header image

Oak Retirement Ltd and Markey Group, two companies working together to deliver high quality, leasehold, Extra Care property for older people to enjoy independent living.

Led by the company's founder Dr Stephen Ladyman, the Extra Care housing offered by Oak Retirement combines purpose-built and ergonomically designed housing for older people with onsite flexible care that adapts to each owner's changing needs.

It allows residents to maintain their independence for longer and, because they own the property they live in, to protect their equity. Our properties seek to maximise and further develop the use of assistive technologies to support clients’ independence and safety.
