If you want to spend less time looking after the house and yard or want to live in a community of like-minded people (while enjoying a lifestyle that includes a whole range of activities and socialising) a retirement village may be a good option.
Many villages only offer self–care units (assisted living units) for people who can look after themselves. Some villages also offer serviced units (serviced apartments), where residents can be provided with meals, house–cleaning, laundry and some personal care for an additional monthly fee.
Some complexes include both retirement villages and aged care facilities. Planning these arrangements can make the transition to aged care less stressful. Integrity Aged Care can guide you step by step.
