Living in a Retirement Village

Have you been wondering whether it’s time to downsize but don’t know where to start? Maybe you’re starting to think your family home no longer suits your lifestyle and needs. Maintaining the home and garden might be a bit of a struggle, or your health might be declining and you’d like to live in a more supportive environment.

A retirement village could be just what you're looking for at this point in your life. Although selling up and moving out of your home might seem overwhelming, weighing up your options carefully will help you make the decision that’s right for you.

Because retirement villages are purpose-built for older people, they offer many lifestyle and practical benefits. Residents enjoy a strong sense of community, feel safe and secure and can enjoy more quality time with family and friends. Retirement villages also offer low maintenance living, easing pressure on seniors who no longer feel they can keep up with home and garden chores.

When it’s time to go on holiday, it’s easy to lock up, relax and enjoy your vacation. Regardless of your own motivation for downsizing, it’s really important you choose the retirement option that best suits your lifestyle and needs.

Resident Poem

Met dapper en stapper

As die horlosie soggens tien voor sewe slaan

Trek die dames in blok B stapskoene aan

Want presies om sewe begin die klub

Met onblusbare toewyding en ywer te stap

Die figure wissel van dun to rond

Party se eetgewoontes dalk net effens ongesond
