Health and safety in retirement—does your retirement resort fit the bill?

Keeping healthy and staying safe is a key consideration for retirees.

It’s well known that being fit and active into retirement is essential to maintaining a healthy body and mind. Many retirees are choosing retirement resorts that help and encourage them to keep an active lifestyle and are looking for low impact activities like golf, bowls, swimming and walking.

Retirement resorts are increasing in popularity as they offer a ready-made community with like-minded individuals. There’s no shortage of golf partners, there’s always a game of bowls happening, and conversation is flowing back at the club house over drinks, craft or other organised activities.

Ageing safely

Retirees are hoping to stay independent and active for as long as possible but as mobility does decrease it’s important for retirees, and their families, to know they are in a safe environment.

When choosing a resort, retirees are considering whether the resort is gated and has security measures like secure access codes and cameras in place. Having staff available to keep an eye on things while residents are away is an important factor.

Many retirement homes are designed with wide doorways, easy to reach cabinetry and safe wet areas. Help with home maintenance and the option to receive in-home health care is critical to making the right choice.

Future care

Having an aged care facility attached to their retirement resort is important for retirees. It provides a smooth transition for residents and enables them to stay connected to friends and enjoy the familiarity of the resort. This is especially important for couples who can stay in the same location while their partner receives the care they need.
