Are meals provided in a retirement village?

A retirement village generally provides minimal levels of in-house daily personal care and support services or flexible options for ‘fee for service’ if required. Meals are not usually provided as part of a daily service offering of a retirement village. Many retirement villages will have a commercial kitchen on-site for the purpose of catering for events and functions. Some retirement villages may hold regular or ad hoc catered meal gatherings for residents. Residents are responsible for shopping for, and preparing their own meals in their accommodation. Communal barbeque areas are often provided as part of the retirement village facilities.
