In your retirement years, retirement villages may provide you with a lifestyle choice that allows you to reduce the time and effort required to maintain your home.
Some villages provide basic levels of supervision and nursing assistance and there is a trend for newer villages to offer serviced apartment living or home care services. But retirement villages are generally more suitable if you are still able to live independently.
Even though the decision to move into a retirement village may largely be driven by lifestyle considerations don’t ignore the commercial aspects. Always read the contract carefully and seek legal advice to ensure it is fully understood.
