Retirement villages are a form of housing built and designed around the needs and preferences of people aged 65 and over. There are as many different types of villages as there are locations and operators. Each offers a wide range of accommodation, amenities, services and facilities to suit your needs.

Would a one, two, three or even four bedroom villa suit? It could be part of a high-rise complex, terrace or stand-alone arrangement? Or maybe you’d prefer a serviced apartment providing assistance if you need extra help with cleaning, laundry, personal care or meals.

Offering security, low maintenance, support and company, retirement villages are a popular lifestyle choice, providing residents with the freedom of independent living with the reassurance of knowing that assistance is never far away if you need it.

You can choose to take up new interests, meet like-minded people or do things you never got around to doing before. Whether you prefer to stay in the same area in which you have lived for many years or seek a complete change of surroundings, there are plenty of options available to you when choosing your new lifestyle. This next stage of your life is all about how you want to live.

There could be any number of reasons why you want to make the move into a retirement village. It could be because you are seeking security and companionship, want a more manageable home or want to free up equity from your existing home and have more to spend in your retirement years. Whatever the reason, thousands of village residents agree it’s a move they should have made years earlier.
