Situated in the picturesque suburb of Stellenberg, La Récolte offers residents an active retired lifestyle that is perfectly paired with local conveniences.

Allowing retirees to live the active yet scaled-down lifestyle they’ve always dreamed of.

La Récolte is a developing estate with existing and new properties often in the market at the same time. Due to La Récolte being designed with the residents in mind, the units are sold on a sectional title basis, meaning each owner can buy/lease/sell their unit at any given time. The state also does not restrict the residents on who they need to use or what they should ask for their dwelling. There is also no percentage that needs to be paid back to the developer, it is therefore also the owner’s responsibility to make sure they choose an estate agent wisely.

Age and Driving

It’s normal for driving abilities to change as we get older.

For many of us, driving is a major aspect of maintaining our independence as we age.

By reducing risk factors and incorporating safe driving practices, you may be able to continue driving safely long into your senior years. But even if you find that you need to reduce your driving or give up the keys, it doesn’t mean the end of your independence. Everyone ages differently, so there is no arbitrary cut off as to when someone should stop driving. As we age, factors such as decreased vision, impaired hearing, slower motor reflexes, and worsening health conditions can become a problem.

Safety tips for older drivers

Aging does not automatically equal total loss of driving ability.

There are many things you can do to continue driving safely, including modifying your car, altering the way you drive, and addressing any physical issues that can interfere with driving.

You may have driven your entire life and take great pride in your safety record, but as you age, it is critical that you realize your driving ability can change. You may feel shocked or overwhelmed at the prospect of losing some of your independence, but by keeping your mind open to new possibilities, you can still maintain an active, vibrant, and rewarding lifestyle without a car.
