There is so much more to retirement villages than simply purpose-built accommodation. A retirement village is your home, your community. It’s a place to meet new friends and discover new interests. You can be involved in village activities as much or as little as you like — the choice is yours. Services and facilities are right at your door, as is the opportunity for some fun and exercise, all in a safe and friendly environment.
Retirement villages enhance personal well-being by specifically addressing the key elements that comprise a person’s overall sense of well-being. Meaningful social ties have a positive impact on both physical and mental well-being. Most surveys show — whether it’s individual providers or the national McCrindle Baynes Census — that the vast majority of the approximate 184,000 people who live in retirement villages across Australia are happy — and happier than they were before making the move.
Retirement villages are a way for you to step into a low-maintenance lifestyle. Forget struggling to clean the gutters, mow the lawns or spending days pulling weeds — retirement living offers a low-maintenance lifestyle. That means more time to do the things you actually enjoy.
As your care needs change over time you may require additional support to maintain your independent lifestyle. Villages can provide additional onsite home and lifestyle services, including personal care, housekeeping, laundry, meal preparation, transport, shopping and the monitoring of medications on a fee-per-service basis.
Australian Unity’s focus is to enhance the well-being of seniors by providing retirement living that aims to meet physical and social needs. Research shows that retirement village residents consistently achieve a higher sense of well-being than the general population. Diversity and community connections are key ingredients to Australian Unity villages.
