Home Living : October 14 2008
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, October 14, 2008 7 Sydney retirement Advertising Feature Retire to live Deciding to make the move from the family home to a retirement village or resort is a decision many retirees probably dread. Yet happily settled village residents would agree that it is a lifestyle decision worth making. Free from the worries of maintenance on the family home and, in many cases, a sense of isolation and loneliness, new residents, given access to appropriate care and support services, enjoy a sense of wellbeing and security with a lifestyle that is liberating. Residents have access to busy social calendars, with many villages offering learning courses in areas such as computer technology, the internet, crafts, arts and more. Residents are free to travel and don't have to worry about leaving their home unattended. According to an industry spokesperson, the most frequently heard comment from new residents after they have settled into their new village is they should have made the move years ago. And that it is better to plan the transition rather then wait until it becomes necessary or urgent. Demand from a new generation of retirees, and the increase of single-person households seeking more lifestyle options has prompted the development of retirement villages with a difference. More villages are taking advantage of a range of modern technologies, with residents getting access to a range of products such as the internet and the latest safety and security developments, without intruding on their privacy or compromising their independence. Many retirement villages and resorts offer residents access to restaurants, gymnasiums with heated pools and spas, libraries, theatres, galleries, internet cafes, club rooms and full bar facilities, games rooms, outdoor recreation areas with tennis courts, bowling greens, barbecue areas, men's sheds and workshops, hairdressers, doctors surgeries, 24 hour monitoring services and more. Many villages have their own bus transport or access to transport for their residents. All of these facilities are designed to meet the needs of the new lifestyle- conscious generation of retirees with their focus being on a happy, active and social environment. To help retirees with their search for more information, the 2008 Sydney Retirement Village Exhibition will be staged on Wednesday, October 22 and Thursday, October 23 at The Epping Club, 45 Rawson St, Epping, (5 minutes walk from the station), open from 10am to 4pm both days.
