Before you look at retirement villages


Useful information and tips from Consumer Affairs Victoria

Moving to a retirement village is a major lifestyle choice. Before you start looking, consider:

  • Have you discussed your decision to enter a retirement village with your family, friends, and other people with whom you usually discuss important matters?
  • Why are you thinking of moving from your current home? Have you considered alternatives, such as home help, seeking help from government or other agencies, or moving to a smaller home?
  • How will you finance the move? Have you asked a financial planner about the best way to manage your income and spending?
  • If you are considering selling your home, have you checked the state of the property market? For more about selling your home, view our Buying and selling property section.
  • Where do you want to live? If you are moving to be close to family or friends, have you asked them about their plans for the future?
