The benefits of retirement resort living

You have a lot of choice when deciding where to spend your golden years.

Will you maintain the family home? Will you downsize to an apartment or townhouse? Will you make the move to a regional or coastal area? And will you choose to live alone, or be part of a retirement community?

There are lots of benefits to living in an over 50s retirement village or resort. Here are some of the reasons more and more retirees are choosing the benefits of retirement resort living.

A lifestyle investment 

Many retirees are choosing retirement resorts and villages not just because they offer beautiful homes and a sense of community, but because they offer lifestyle and recreational facilities right on your doorstep. 

Often situated in beautiful locations beside rivers or the ocean, many retirement resorts are built around special interests such as golf or lawn bowls and offer a range of health and fitness options and recreational community activities. Retirees can stay active, busy and engaged in a supportive community without even having to leave the resort’s front gate.

A place to belong

Having a sense of community and wellbeing, and feeling valued is important in retirement. Retirees have an important contribution to make beyond their years of paid work and retirement resorts provide the perfect opportunity for residents to get involved and create a great place to live. 

The residents of most retirement resorts are also connected to wider community groups, churches and special interest groups. Whether you are looking for an active retirement or wanting to slow down, retirement resorts offer ample opportunities to find a place to belong and build meaningful friendships.

A secure future

Residents of retirement resorts can rest assured in their future and know that the big, and little things are taken care of as they age. Low maintenance homes, safe and secure grounds, and options for future aged care provide reassurance and allow residents of resorts to relax and enjoy their retirement.

Homes are generally built to accommodate accessibility needs for ageing residents with grounds managers and staff are only a call away.

Retirement resorts provide a care-free and independent option for residents who want to focus on getting the most out of life and not being weighed down by the burden of property maintenance. Exciting lifestyle and recreation options ensure retirees can stay active, connected, and look forward to a safe future surrounded by a supportive community.
