What makes retirement places a good place to live

If you or a loved one is thinking about moving to a retirement village, here are key benefits for you:

  • Low maintenance: Retirement villages and homes are often designed to be low maintenance, which means that residents don’t have to worry about gardening, cleaning or home repairs.
  • Security: These are typically located in secure communities with gated entrances, security cameras, and other safety features. This can provide peace of mind for residents who may be concerned about living alone. A warden provides onsite emergency help and addressing wellbeing concerns promptly.
  • Social opportunities: Retirement living often has communal areas such as lounges, gardens, and dining rooms, organised day trips out that encourage social interaction among residents. This can help combat loneliness and isolation, which can be a common problem for older people.
  • Access to amenities: Many retirement villages offer on-site amenities such as cafes, fitness centres, and libraries. This can make it easier for residents to stay active and engaged in their community.
  • Location: Retirement living is often located in desirable areas that are close to shops, restaurants, and other amenities. This can make it easier for residents to maintain an active and independent lifestyle.
