Resort style living for seniors: it makes sense
“You’d love it here. We’re surrounded by parkland but if I need to go to the shops, I pop across the road. Took a dip in the heated indoor pool this morning and hubby spent the afternoon on the bowls green. He’s headed over for Happy Hour at the village bar. I’ll duck over to the gym first and join him later.”
With health on your side, your retirement years are about living the lifestyle you’ve worked hard to enjoy.
If security, convenience and resort style living are on your retirement planning wish list, it’s a good time to look into retirement village living.
We’re staying active for longer
14% of Australia's population are 65 years or over, increasing to 22% by 2061 – and we’re living longer and healthier lives.
Apart from the obvious benefits of living longer, the good news is that industries providing products and services for over 65s have turned their focus to catering to the needs of active retirees.
Security, independence and resort style living
Retirement living options need to offer a lifestyle, not just a place to live.
A retirement village gives you resort style living along with the comfort of living in safe surrounds. If you want to enjoy a holiday, you can lock up and go knowing your home is secure. There is also the security of knowing a community and conveniences are right at your doorstep, or you can close your front door and enjoy your private sanctuary.
It’s a lifestyle choice that removes the time and cost of home maintenance, freeing you up with time to spend on activities you always imagined indulging in.
Access to resort style living facilities and activities is a bonus that many of us only experience when we’re on holidays.
