A year ago the Cognatum board made the decision to rejoin the ARHM (Association of Retirement Housing Managers), reversing an earlier one to move its allegiance to the ARMA (Association of Residential Managing Agents). Following a recent compliance audit by the ARHM, Cognatum Estates’ application has been approved.

Cognatum has also joined the Retirement Housing Group, which works to promote retirement living and help shape government policy. Stephen Ladyman, former Minister of State for Transport, chairs the group.
