Why choose a retirement village? Enjoy the confidence that comes from belonging.

A retirement village might not be for everyone, however those who choose to make the move do agree that they should have done it sooner.

For some it is the opportunity to meet new people and find companionship, while for others it’s about enjoying the freedom from maintaining a large house and garden. For Uniting resident Leoni, that was one of the appeals of making the move to a village.

“Having everything looked after frees up time to do the things you really want to do and isn’t that what retirement is about,” said Leoni. Uniting retirement living resident Joan shared “that’s what I like about it – I moved in and everything is taken care of. I’ve got my independence, but I’m not living in some isolated house on my own, and I must say I’m surrounded by very nice people.”
