The Retirement Village Lifestyle

Choosing the right retirement village that meets your needs and expectations can enrich your quality of life and let you follow your lifestyle wishes and needs.

A retirement village is an outstanding lifestyle choice for people who want to live independently in their own home while enjoying the benefits that a village provides. You can enjoy the retirement village lifestyle and choose a village located in the country, beside the sea, near a golf course, or in the heart of the city.

The term “Retirement Village” covers an ever-increasing variety of accommodation and services for people of retirement age. For example, some villages have an emphasis on 'lifestyle' with resort-style accommodation and facilities. Others can provide a full range of care options so residents can enjoy a village lifestyle for as long as they want.

Each village is unique and can range in size from two units to over 300. The types of accommodation offered can vary from villas or town houses to apartments, and serviced apartments where care is delivered to you in your own apartment. Most villages have a community centre and offer a range of recreation facilities.

Some reasons to move to a retirement village:

  • Enjoy the privacy of your own home
  • Release the equity in your own home and bank the difference
  • Maintain independence in a supportive environment
  • Enjoy the company of like-minded people and make new friends
  • Have peace of mind from 24 hour 'on call' assistance
  • Access a variety of services and recreation facilities
  • Remove the major worry of maintaining a home and garden
  • Stop worrying about safety

Living in a retirement village you have the best of both worlds - you can enjoy the benefits of privacy and security while not having to worry about maintaining your home. Choosing a village which suits you can enrich your life and give you the time to pursue your interests amongst friends.

The most common phrase we hear from residents is "I wish I had made the decision to move sooner."
