WE ARE GUILD LIVING.
We will enable older people to live extraordinary lives.

OUR MISSION

Guild Living values the extraordinary life of every older person, and will reinstate older people at the heart of our lives and communities – where they belong. The time has come to look at ageing in a whole new way.

ACADEMIC APPROACH

Led by groundbreaking global academic research, we’re developing a deep understanding of the loves, fears, wants and needs of older people – to deliver innovative alternatives to the options currently available in market.

ENABLING YOUR BEST LIFE

Working in partnership with Legal & General, we are creating third age ‘communities for life’ in the heart of towns and city centres right across the UK. At Guild Living, we believe that individually we are great, and together we are extraordinary.

We’re passionate about later living, but not as you currently know it.

How it all began

It all started with a conversation between Eugene Marchese and Michael Eggington about their frustrations and aspirations around ageing, care and later living. With significant global experience in later living, they both agreed that we needed a better way to age.

INSPIRING ENVIRONMENTS

We will enable older people to live extraordinary lives through beautiful architecture and design – all within sociable and vibrant urban settings. Our innovative communities in Bath, Epsom and Walton (with more locations to come) will deliver the security of care and wellness programmes.

Experience Counts

In partnership with Legal & General and a leading team of ageing experts – including Emeritus Professor Malcolm Johnson, and the University of Bath – we are delivering later living solutions that are informed by global academic research.

Words From Our Partners

  • Creating environments and opportunities to enable more people to live as they want for longer is a shared ambition for many of our researchers across many disciplines at the University. We’re able to produce world-leading research and experts to tackle this challenge, but by having good partnerships like Guild Living, with which we can exchange our knowledge and realise our ambition, we can ensure the results of our efforts not only benefit our City’s residents, but our region, nation and society as a whole.

    PROFESSOR JULIE BARNETT, FACULTY OF HUMANITIES & SOCIAL SCIENCES

  • What I’m really passionate about is thinking about individuals and how we change people’s lives. It’s making sure we use the scale of the development to the benefit of an individual. One of our founding principles is about being inclusive, so you’re not seeing a gated community, you’ll have an accessible, lively, active, multi-generational community.

    PHIL BAYLISS, CEO OF LATER LIVING

  • We are creating adaptable spaces where people can age in place. We don’t want these to feel institutional in any shape or form. At Marchese Partners, we believe in being able to design a beautifully functional home that allows the resident to age in place. This applies to the design of the kitchen, bathrooms, and adaptable spaces – so that they know they can move into this place and not have to move again.
