FAQs: How is a retirement village different from other types of accommodation?
A retirement village:
- is legally defined and governed by the Retirement Villages Act 1986 (Vic)
- promotes independent living
- generally provides minimal levels of in-house daily personal care and support services or flexible options for 'fee for service' if required.
The other types of retirement village accommodation available are manufactured home parks, residential parks, rental villages and residential aged care facilities such as hostels, nursing homes and other supported residential services. These are not retirement villages, and do not have the same protections for residents that are provided by the Retirement Villages Act.
