You’ve worked hard and now you can do the things you enjoy the most, go where you want to go and live the life you deserve.

Retirement villages are run by professional managers and support staff who are committed to making life easier for residents, whether it’s arranging for the collection of dry cleaning or keeping the garden in tip top condition.

Take comfort in the knowledge that there are emergency call systems in place, visiting doctors should you need one as well as services like podiatry, hairdressing and massage therapy.

Enjoy a meal in the village restaurant or bistro, catch up with your neighbours in the coffee lounge or have a barbecue with your family.

If you’re thinking of making the move to a retirement village, be sure to ask about the services available.

You’ll be amazed at just how many there are.
