How is a Retirement Village different from other types of retirement 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 accommodation available are residential parks, rental villages and residential aged care such as hostels, nursing homes and other supported residential services. These are not retirement villages.
