Retirement villages offer retirement accommodation in villas, units, townhouses or apartments often designed around a communal hub of facilities and gardens. A retirement village that encourages a healthy social ambience will include a range of shared facilities such as a community centre or clubhouse, BBQ areas, sporting facilities such as a bowling green, swimming pool and gymnasium, library, community gardens, internet lounges, meeting rooms, lounge and dining rooms and parking for visitors. Village bars, health and beauty centres can also be part of the retirement village facilities. Some retirement villages also provide on-site social coordinators to develop and organise group activities, events and outings. Buying into a retirement village is a lifestyle choice that offers you access to a broad range of facilities that may have otherwise been out of reach for you.
